That's good to hear. So many people ask me if there is a way to get it without Xbox Live. I'm glad they'll finally be able to play it.

Where is the PS3/PS4/Vita version?!?

I wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be an XBox exclusive retail release, which would suck if it were.

You're not missing much though without having Minecraft.

Oh, yes. It's a 360 exclusive, for now. I didn't expect the retail release to be on PS3. I just want them to make one for it. They'd need yet ANOTHER team, however.

why would you ever play minecraft on console?

theres no mods, texture packs, npcs, cant play with more than 4 people....the world has borders on xbox

theres huge persistant worlds on pc, pvp, guilds, raids etc......xbox has NONE of that

your moms computer can run minecraft better than the 360 if its from the last 5 years

so unless you just want to pay more for a far inferior version

play it on pc

Prepare for being called "PC elitist" despite giving legitimate reasons as to how and why the PC version of Minecraft is superior to the console version lol.

Those are excellent points.

To be honest: the only reason I'm interested in getting it for 360 (haven't as of yet) is because that's simply what my 'better' friends enjoy using. Regardless of how dramatically different the gimped version may be, just being able to whip out $15 for an fun time-waster (from what I've seen/heard) like this with friends is fine by me.

Plus, I don't live with my mom so I can't use her computer. :P

oh its only $20, thats not bad...i honestly just assumed it being on console it would be $30-$40 casue they always seem to over price stuff

$20 not bad at all...

You do know that different people like different things? Right?

That's something you are aware of? Right??

Some people even just like vanilla MC!!!! I realise that this is a major revelation for you so I'll just stop there so as not to blow your mind any further.

Sounds like a good idea. There is a large percentage of 360 and PS3 users who don't buy DLC
