While the Xbox One X reveal understandably dominated the headlines from Microsoft's E3 press conference, the software giant made another huge announcement: Minecraft is going cross-platform.

In short, all versions of Minecraft, including for Nintendo Switch, will support crossplay, allowing users of different platforms to play together.

Minecraft is getting cross-platform support for mobile devices, Nintendo Switch, VR, Windows 10 PCs, and gaming consoles with a new update. We've reached out to Sony for comment, and until we hear from them officially, we should give them the benefit of the doubt.

Pocket Edition and Xbox One are both catching up. If this truly is Sony holding out because the cross-platform play might give Microsoft a financial boost, then maybe Sony isn't really "for the players" after all.

More servers will be added as Mojang ramps the services up to allow players to enjoy multiplayer "Minecraft" with new mini-games and worlds to craft in with their friends. For those who already own Minecraft on mobile or VR devices, they will get the free update in the summer. Additionally any content that is purchased on older versions of the game, will be available across devices.
