Minecraft: Sony has refused crossplay on its console

The Better Together Update brings community marketplace, massive servers and cross-platform play to console this summer, unifying Minecraft across mobile, Windows 10, VR and console! Players have always had to go online, find a server IP online, copy and paste it across to the Minecraft client, without any validation about what the server they're connecting to is like. For years, there have been efforts to bring different Minecraft versions parallel with each other at both the functional and codebase level, but none have flourished. The game will include all the features from the Windows 10 edition, but it will be a 4K title which means it should look much better than the old Xbox One game. Either way, it's disappointing that PlayStation VR fans won't be able to immerse themselves in Minecraft along with their friends on PC, who can use HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets.

Well, Microsoft has chose to bring its Minecraft audience together, regardless of what version of the game they play.

Those that own Minecraft: Nintendo Switch Edition will receive the brand new version of Minecraft for free, with existing worlds and DLC transferrable. Players across Switch, Xbox One, Windows, and mobile devices can play together.

The upcoming "Super Duper Graphics Pack" will add more realistic textures, light effects, and graphics into Minecraft - with the new Xbox One X rocking 4K support for the game. While servers are now being used, Mojang is offering official support to community members for the first time, initially partnering with Lifeboat, InPvP, Mineplex, and Cubecraft at launch.
