They originally said holiday 2011. Guess it got pushed back.

Just realised that before too, guess it needs polishing.

Blackdeath_6632126d ago (Edited 2126d ago )

it needs more than just a polishing and a lot of it too... (InMyOpinion)

MaxXAttaxX2126d ago (Edited 2126d ago )

Does that mean the PC version never exited?

Just like Mass Effect and BioShock huh, lol.

Aside from stealing a good name and making metalheads look ignorant, if you actually read the article, you would see the words "Micecraft on consoles is Xbox 360 exclusive".

MaxXAttaxX2126d ago (Edited 2126d ago )

Ignorant? I am aware of what the article says.

My first comment ended with "/s" which means sarcasm. Poking fun at the title.

My second statement draws from a history of PC games claimed as 360 exclusive on consoles, but turning up on PS3 just months later.

Cant wait its gonna be awesome but I wish the ps3 would also get it.

egidem2126d ago

It eventually will come to the PS3, just a matter of waiting for the timed exclusivity to end. The same thing happened with Limbo, if I remember correctly.

I wonder if Microsoft will allow people on the PC version to play with the Xbox version...

Convas2126d ago (Edited 2126d ago )

The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings and Minecraft XBLA, two absolute MUST BUYS for Spring 2012 for Xbox 360.

Laxman2126d ago

How can people really disagree that those games are worth playing? My guess is its PS3 fanboys who are annoyed that they dont get either, but no matter which console you prefer, people should still be able to agree on the fact that both of those titles will be great, and like you said, must haves for the Xbox 360.

Lyr1c2126d ago

Why do you automatically assume it's fanboys?

It just makes you look insecure.

It could just as easily have been people who disliked both or either of the games he mentioned.

xAlmostPro2126d ago

Why must it be fanoys?..

Maybe people have different opinions about those games than you.

PixL2126d ago

Exclusive title also available on PC and Android phones. How stupid can you make yourself look, Microsoft liars?

Yodagamer2126d ago (Edited 2126d ago )

they obviously mean its a console exclusive

egidem2126d ago

They would've said that already. They also said the same thing about Mass Effect 1, but went ahead and released it on PC.

I'm curious about how much it will cost though. The PC version would be the ultimate choice over the Xbox version, unless you don't own a PC at all or all your friends happen to be on the 360.

MaxXAttaxX2126d ago

A game that's "console exclusive" would not be on PC.
So it's still the wrong description.

Godmars2902126d ago

Its about which system its not on.

If it was on everything else, the Wii, the 3DS or even the PSP yet still be on the PS3, someone in their PR department would still call it "exclusive."

tickticktick2126d ago (Edited 2126d ago )

I guess that's probably why they said "console exclusive" and not exclusive.

That ^ is what happens when you just read the title. Same for below.

"Notch has confirmed on Twitter that the console version of Minecraft will be an Xbox 360 exclusive."

PixL2126d ago

It's also available on Xperia Play, a console with built-in GSM module. So that's still a lie.

guigsy2126d ago

1. The post quite clearly says "Minecraft on consoles is Xbox 360 exclusive".

2. It wasn't Microsoft that said it, it was the creator of Minecraft.

How stupid can YOU make youself look, PixL?

Solidus187-SCMilk2126d ago

even just reading the little blurb you can read where it sad that NOTCH said this NOT MS, and that it clearly says "the CONSOLE version of minecraft will be xbox 360 exclusive."

MEANS THERE IS NO PS3/Wii VERSION. Im guessing you read that and understand what it meant, you just got butthurt and proceeded to make a dumb comment anyways.

Its just mincraft, its not like you cant play the PC version.

Laxman2126d ago

Geez, whats with you PC people not reading the actual article?!


They are not saying Xbox is the only machine with it! They are only saying its the only console with it!

Well it's not exactly exclusive if it's on PC now is it?

Solidus187-SCMilk2126d ago

PC is not exactly a console now is it?
