There’s good news if you’re into cult game Minecraft and bought/are on the cusp of buying a next-gen games console. That’s because the title is heading to both the Xbox One and PS4 this week.

Update: Minecraft is now available for Xbox One and PS4.

The game will be available for the PS4 on Thursday, with Sony charging €18.99 (around $25.00) for first-time players or €3.99 (around $5.20) for those upgrading from the PS3 edition. Microsoft is making the title available for the Xbox One on Friday — using a similar pricing system of $19.99 for new users or $4.99 for upgrades from the Xbox 360 version.
