Playstation 3 Edition
In Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition, press twice to start flying, hold to go up, double tap again to enable gravity, and hold (push right stick in) to descend. Use the left stick to move horizontally, and push it forwards twice quickly to sprint. While sprinting and flying simultaneously the movement plane changes in such a way as to cause forwards movement to go directly towards the crosshairs, not towards them and at the same altitude as before, as ordinary movement causes. The host of a game can enable flying in survival mode using the host privileges. Using host privileges disables trophies (achievements) and leaderboards.

In Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, players can fly by double tapping the button, then hold to fly upward and hold the analog stick to lower themselves. Alternatively, one could press up and down on the D-pad to slowly move up and down. If the player presses the move stick forwards twice they can sprint-fly. It is also possible to fly in Survival Mode if one has host privileges on.(Notice host privileges will disable achievements and leaderboards)
