Can you play Minecraft with your friends on Xbox 360 if you have an Xbox One (Minecraft legacy console, video games)?

Minecraft enters the next generation with the release of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition (ESRB rating E10+), available Friday, Sept. 5 for download in the Xbox Store. Owners of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition can upgrade for just $4.99* USD, or new players can download the full game for $19.99 USD. All downloadable content players have purchased for the Xbox 360 Edition is available free for re-download on Xbox One.

With worlds up to 36 times larger than on Xbox 360, now there’s an even bigger canvas to create on. Transfer your favorite Xbox 360 worlds and content to the Xbox One Edition so you won’t lose your creations. Join a community of 13-million-plus Minecraft fans on Xbox Live that are continually laying down imaginative creations. And, with the widest range of downloadable content on console, you’ll never run out of new worlds to explore with four player split-screen on one console or up to eight players over Xbox Live.**

Xbox is about giving players a choice – even in how you buy your game. Starting Friday, players can purchase and download the Minecraft: Xbox One Edition upgrade or full game from the Xbox Store with either a credit card or an Xbox Gift Card purchased at retail. Later this month, select retailers will sell the full game Digital Download Code and the full game packaged disc will be on retail store shelves globally this holiday, just in time for gift giving.

No you can’t. Xbox 360 Minecraft discs can only be played on 360 as is the same with Xbox one. For the full list of backwards compatible games look here.
