Minecraft: Sony has refused crossplay on its console

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.

The new update also features better graphics and cross-platform support to let Windows 10 and mobile Minecraft players play the game together. Additionally, players will be able to download the Super Duper Graphics Pack to play Minecraft in 4K resolution for the first time. With more than a 120 million copies sold across numerous platforms, spin-off games - with the promise of more to come - the IP is nothing short of a success.

Available on the Xbox One, Windows 10, iOS, mobile, and VR versions of the game, the update will provide improved lighting, shadows, water effects, and generally a more visually impressive Minecraft experience. Microsoft has even publicly stated they would like to see Sony join the party. Weirdly enough, the game's jagged edges and blocky structures look attractive in 4K, as is evidenced by several spots in the trailer revealed at the E3 press conference. While there are plenty of mods out there that can augment the style or look of the game, its official, vanilla version has extolled the virtues of blocky, low-level graphics that make it possible just about any system to play it. We've wanted to integrate cross-platform for ages, essentially making a version of Minecraft that's consistent no matter what device you're choosing to play on. New servers will go online from partners Lifeboat, InPvP, Mineplex and CubeCraft.

These servers can host thousands of players at a time for massive multiplayer games in real time.

Key takeaways from Sessions' testimony
Sessions said he "racked my brain" and had no meeting with any Russian in his capacity as a Trump campaign adviser. Some have said Sessions recusal should have prohibited him from firing former FBI Director James Comey .

It's also important to keep in mind that Sony has expressed an openness to cross-platform play in the past with games like Final Fantasy XIV and Rocket League.

The Xbox press conference was full of worthwhile news from the reveal of Xbox One X, a release date for Cuphead, and the debut of Bioware's newest game, Anthem.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, and Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition will simply become "Minecraft" - owners of all three editions will get the new edition on each platform for free. If you own Minecraft for Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, you'll get a new version for free - and rest assured that your existing world and DLC will be available there.
