Minecraft is currently available on XBox 360 and PS3, and is coming to the XBox One and PS4 sometime in the not so distant future. Now I don't know how similar the code bases will be, but this question seems to indicate that the crafting interface is the same at the very least.

Should we have multiple tags, or consolidate them into something like ?

Mostly, just like how we're doing it for Terraria:


<- ,


( added purely for consistency)

could (if there are great differences between the generations) be split by generation. But at this point that would be pure speculation - and we would have to do the very same for a bunch of other cross-generation games.


Following updates and consolidation of the Minecraft versions by Mojang as part of the Better Together' Update, our community followed suit with our tagging efforts.

As such, the following tags should be used for console versions of Minecraft:

  • - for older Minecraft console versions that are no longer supported by Mojang or it's affiliated developers.

    Minecraft for Xbox 360, PS3, PS Vita, Wii U, and the old (non-Bedrock) editions for Xbox One and PS4.
    See Legacy Console Edition on the Minecraft Wiki for more information.

  • - for the multi-platform family of Minecraft editions that all now share a single code base. These versions are all officially just named 'Minecraft'.

    Minecraft for Windows 10, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Gear VR, Apple TV, Fire TV and Mobile/Tablet devices (née 'Pocket Edition'): Android, iOS, Fire OS, Windows 10 Mobile
    See Bedrock Edition on the Minecraft Wiki for more information.
