During their E3 press conference yesterday, Microsoft announced that Minecraft will be supporting cross-platform play, unifying players on console, mobile, Windows 10 and VR builds of the game. Also, the players will have access to Minecraft Realms which is a service for monthly subscriptions where you get a server to host your world, and that server is always online. The new graphics update will bring 4K resolution rendering to the Xbox One version of the game.
Now, Sony in a recent interview has tried their best to justify as to why they don't want cross platform play on their console. All the Bedrock versions now are simply being called "Minecraft", while the Java-based versions will be called Minecraft Java Edition.
The Nintendo Switch was confirmed as one of the consoles, but there was nothing on the PS4.
You may wonder why one would play Minecraft in 4K, right?

The non-Windows 10 version of Minecraft, meanwhile, is henceforth known as "Minecraft: Java Edition", though Microsoft say they'll continue to support it. "Minecraft" communications manager Aubrey Norris even said, "We have no intention to push people one way or other".
It's a new concept for "Minecraft" as a platform unto itself rather than a distinct game. Update, June 12 at 11:45 a.m.: Adds details about graphics changes coming to Minecraft in the fall. Also, Microsoft stated at E3 that more developers are now working on the Java version than before, and this shows the company is still committed to supporting it long-term, as pointed out by TIME.
