Minecraft Xbox 360 studio in discussion to allow save transfers to Xbox One

Minecraft Xbox 360 developer 4J Studios is currently in discussion with Microsoft Studios regarding the allowing of save files to transfer to Xbox One consoles, Phil Spencer confirmed on Twitter today.

This comes in response to an earlier statement from the Microsoft Studios boss. Spencer previously told OXM that the next-gen edition of the Minecraft title would simply be "a new product," and would not allow for previous saves to transfer onto the new console.

Microsoft announced the Xbox One edition during its E3 press conference last week. The new Minecraft installment is said to feature larger worlds and expanded multiplayer support.
