This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

Minecraft: Console Edition was released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the PlayStation Vita.

Console and PC Differences

  • The PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, and Xbox One all have split-screen support for Multiplayer, though an HDTV with a Component or HDMI cable is required for it to work.
  • The game includes an automatic crafting system where you do not have to place the blocks in the grid. However, there is an option to use the PC crafting.
  • There is a tutorial world (and mode) included, which teaches the basics of the game.
  • Old sounds are used for most blocks and items.
  • Whenever you start a new world, there is a map included in your inventory.
  • The world sizes are limited to 864×864 blocks for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U, 3072×3072 for the Nintendo Switch, and 5120×5120 blocks for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
  • There is downloadable content in the form of skin packs, texture packs, mash-up packs, and mini-games.
  • Tamed Wolves and Snow Golems are limited to 16 at a time.
  • Creative mode flying does not keep momentum.
  • Two ender crystals in the End are protected by iron bars.

  • The Nether has bedrock walls at the world's borders.
  • The PlayStation Vita Edition and Nintendo Switch Edition have Ad-Hoc support like an offline multiplayer service. It can be toggled on or off (Online or Ad-Hoc), and is also similar to LAN servers but without internet connection.
  • The Wii U and Switch versions currently do not support leaderboards.

Unused Mini Game Map Sections

Please elaborate.
Having more detail is always a good thing.
Specifically: Images, more info, etc.

All of the maps used in the Battle and Tumble Mini Games are quite bigger than what can be seen. To elaborate, only a small part of the maps are actually used; things like background details and small Easter eggs can be found out of bounds.

Present in all Modes

A copy of the Lobby can be found out of sight in all maps and modes.


A lot of unused scenery is present out of bounds.


A number of secrets were added to the Lobby, including hidden music discs and mob heads.

The background arena is a little bigger than what can be seen in-game.
