$4.99 if you own the Xbox 360 or PS3 version

Minecraft set sales records on the Xbox 360 when a downloadable version was released in 2012, and this week the blocky world-building phenomenon comes to new consoles. Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition and Xbox One Edition will be released in the US on Thursday and Friday, respectively, featuring bigger levels and more downloadable content. The PS4 version is already out in Europe.

The new versions will cost $4.99 if you bought the game on the Xbox 360 or PS3, and $19.99 for everyone else. Friday's Xbox One release date only applies to the Xbox Store download; Microsoft says a packaged disc will hit stores before the holiday season. A version of Minecraft for the PS Vita is also on the way.

Update, 10:20PM ET: Added details of the PS4 release.
