Yesterday PlayStation announced that Minecraft gamers will be able to carry-over their hard work world-building to the next-gen PlayStation 4. Today Microsoft says that they have also worked closely with developer Mojang to help Xbox 360 gamers bring there saved games to the Xbox One despite previously going on the record to say it wasn't possible.

Previously, Xbox head Phil Spencer had said that games wouldn't carry over between the generations, but now says it will, the best kind of flip-flop on Microsoft's part. On top of that Spencer promises more news soon on how the Xbox One version is going to be bigger and better than its predecessor.

While the casual gamer may not care too much about save game carry-overs, I didn't spend hundreds of hours of my life flawlessly  recreating Tamriel from Skyrim to not play it on my new console.
