Hardcore Gamer: Minecraft can be had at a substantial discount on Xbox One and PS4.
Used games are such a terrible thing for developers in so many ways haha. : ( Also everyone should read the first post. It isn't trolling, it is quite funny!
Indeed they surely would prefer if we couldn't trade bad or short games, removing value from the product and not lowering the price. I already didnt buy DCUO for this scheme and probably won't support business in this direction as much as I can.
Dangit.... I was so happy I didn't need to put in my disc to play it, and now that privilege will be gone when everyone exploits this..... :/
yeah, it'd be too easy to borrow the disc from a buddy, or rent it, or buy it used from Gamestop and return it, then return it for full price. Very nice of Mojang, but it's much too easy to exploit like you said.
Minecraft has made so much money they don't need more XD but seriously they would have been better off adding a time limit like first month get it for £4 if u brought it last gen
I can't read this link at work (stupid internet filter...), but on the EU Playstation Blog they've stated the free upgrade of the disc version only works if you played the game on PS3 before 28th August 2014. Therefore we can't just buy/borrow the disc now to get the cheap upgrade :( Not sure if it's different for rest of the world, but I know I can't exploit it lol EDIT: Link to EU Blog post http://blog.eu.playstation....
This wont work as the PS4/X1 is going to require the person to input the PS3/360 disc to play the PS4/X1 version of the game like they did with Call of Duty ghost, Battlefield 4, Assassins creed 4, and all the other launch games that had a $10 upgrade but I forgot that this is N4G so you guys aren't able to learn from past experiences.
That's strange because I never played the game before and it was £3.69 on the store. Thankfully I got it at this price but now I have checked it's gone up to £12.99 and I now have the ps3 version in my download list. But was does this mean for the vita version will it be free?
@GRA45M The exact same thing happen to me I was gona pay the full $20 then I saw it was only $5 so I even bought dlc with some of the remaining. I know I never bought the ps3 version but I did try the demo out but that was about it. Now I'm playing it with my son and he loves it :)
Is it too late to buy it digitally on ps3 and get the ps4 version for 5 bucks?
Minecraft? What is this 2010?
Just wanted to confirm, this worked for me! Rented the 360 version from redbox, played and saved a world, then about 24 hours later the discounted price of 5 dollars was shown on my xbox one.
