While the digital version of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition has been released and is available to Xbox One gamers, we guess there are probably some gamers out there who would much prefer owning a physical copy of the game. Perhaps they’re more comfortable with physical copies, or maybe they have a bad internet connection, or maybe a physical copy will look nice as part of their collection.
Well whatever the case is, if you’re after the physical copy of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, you will be pleased to learn that Microsoft will be releasing the retail copy of the game in stores come 18th of November where it will be priced at $19.99. Just like the digital copy, gamers will be able to transfer their work and progress from the Xbox 360 version to the Xbox One version.
Microsoft adds that gamers will also be able to transfer “most” of the downloadable content to the Xbox One as well, although they did not share any specifics. Unfortunately if you were to purchase the retail copy of the game, you will have to pay full price for it, unlike gamers who went the digital route and only had to pay $4.99 for the upgrade if they already had the Xbox 360 version of the game.
