Update: As Mojang confirmed its popular indie-game will remain exclusive on Xbox 360, some players may ask why is it not available on Playstation 3? In case you have any suggestions, show us in your comments below.
They could just play it on PC where the better version will be. It's not like it takes a high end PC to run Minecraft.
agreed. very console has exclusives, get over it
yes but minecraft deserves to be on all consoles! its so addictive
that is true, BUT uncharted deserves to be on every console too, so does halo and gears etc.
I'm not a PC gamer, but you would have to live under a rock not to have heard how good Witcher 2 and Minecraft were for the platform. I think it's cool that 360 gamers are getting both of these titles. I look forward to both. But at the end of the day, if your not a PC gamer and only own a PS3 there honestly doesnt seem like there isnt a chance that these will ultimately end up on the PS3 as well. Especially if both are very very successful on the 360. Evil
and 360 doesn't got LBP and 3D Dot Game Heroes either! big deal
The 360 is running out of exclusives, so it has to take whats left of our pc exclusives. Damn them!
Unfair to PS3 players? Really now?... Don't understand what the hell is so special about minecraft...and to the incoming defenders..don't try I lost interest in Legos at the age of 3...
LOL Minecraft is such a system seller :p
Consoles ports are a joke. Minecraft is a PC exclusive.
WAS. Your tense is a little... past.
Yeah because the graphics require some major horsepower /s
Wait. Unfair for PS3 players? While im a PS3/360 and PC player, Id say its good that Minecraft is on 360 and not the PS3. Look at Microsoft. They barely do anything to get exclusives for gamers. If you have a PS3 and just a PS3, you get fantastic titles like Uncharted 3, God of War, more HD collections, Killzone and so forth. Can't 360 players have some things PS3 players don't? Seriously. Talk about unfair. If PS3 players want Minecraft so bad, just play it on the PC.
It not our fault that they don't create quality exclusives for their console.
I know that. But then it's not the gamers fault either, which is why its silly that people think its unfair that PS3 owners wont get Minecraft. They get so much.
Umm they do create quality exclusives for 360, there's just not that many compared to PS3. Doesn't really bother me though. Most of the games I really wanted to play this year were multiplatform anyway.
I can take it or leave it. I could get it on 360, but I don't really buy much from the marketplace, and personally, I'm not that interested in Minecraft. I don't think many PS3 owners will be to fussed about it and if they want to play it, it's on PC too right?
So... It will come to the PS3 a year later after the exclusive deal wears off and by then all the bugs and improvments will be all fixed for the PS3.
I just don't get why Microsoft don't buy out more studios with all that money? Then they can push limits like KZ3 and UC3 does with Sony. Seriously I play 360 only and Gears looks great but compared to UC3 well there is no comparison.
Because it's a waste of money, for all the exclusives Sony put out this year, they had only a few that did anything worthwhile. Where as Microsoft had fewer, but all were quality and are selling very well. Why waste money?
Why make a console and not support it with games? Seriously, what sort of mentality is this?! No platform holder before Microsoft has had such weak first party support but now it's acceptable? If they had third party exclusives in vast numbers, fair enough, but they don't.... I can't believe you don't see an issue with this.
props to our shareholder here! settling for less and as long as 2-3 titles a year sell millions and you're good!
Pttf. Don't start that junk. The games Sony released were quality and very worthwhile to anyone who calls themselves a gamer. I'd rather have a variety of games to play then a few games that sale very well. Why would I, as a gamer be concerned about game sales. As long as they're doing well enough to supply quality and quantity, what more could you ask for? The more, the better.
Making exclusive games is not a waste of money by any stretch of the imagination. It satisfies the customer. But then maybe it would be a waste of money for Microsoft. Shooters over-perform and every other genre under-performs on the 360. Still, this is a Forza and Gears year for the box so it isn't that bad.
"I just don't get why Microsoft don't buy out more studios with all that money?" A couple of big names they've lost since this gen started point to the games division not having much money which is likely due to the RROD Bungie got out for personal reasons so i won't include them but MS have lost - Aces - MS Flight Sim Bioware - Mass Effect, Star Wars Bizarre Creations - PGR Racing Ensemble Games - Age of Empires FASA - MechWarrior Not all were first party but MS could have easily bought them at time of sale provided they had the funding.
gonna join you..i must cry knowing that I won't be getting minecraft I guess we'll have to suck it up and play uncharted starhawk resistance killzone ratchet and countless others to ease the pain. (sarcasm)
Can somebody please tell me what the hell is mine craft?
A semi-overrated game. It's a decent game but nowhere near as good as most people make it out to be IMO.
Fair Shmair. Thats the point of exclusives. One of the reasons I prefer PS3 over XB (which I also have) is the better exclusives, (in my opinion.) You want a game on another console, get another console. PS I dont know too much about minecraft, but isnt it about creating stuff and sharing those creations? If thats right, I would have though the PSN has shown its much more open to that. If anything the devs are being unfair to their own game, not PS3 owners.
Never mind just read a article and watched a couple of videos. so its like little big planet.
atleast give us fortresscraft or something come on!
Damn near any pc will run it so I don't see what the problem is.
psh... they say that as if we actually have the time and money left to even consider buying it -_-
ps3 owner's don't need minecraft a majority of us don't even know what that is. just keep it on pc
as a Playstation/Wii owning guy I'm glad to hear this for tha Xbox community.. real talk, exclusives are just a great thing
I'd rather have Terraria.
Hold on didnt an Independent developer release a same similar game exclusive too tha 360?If this is true why would MS screw them over by releasing this title also? But congrats too Minecraft for bring too 360 also good luck ;)
How do I report this flamebait shit as lame? This is the same damn news with a headline designed to piss off console fanboys. He classifies it as opinion piece because of the headline, but no where in the article does he even give his opinion. Get over it, it's an exclusive xbox 360 game, just like Gears of War 3. Is it unfair that Uncharted 3 is only for PS3? The stuff that gets approved on here is ridiculous.
either way its super addictive
Isn't it kind of meant for PC in terms of controls.
well its a good thing i got a 360 and a ps3 :) i gat a pc too but that dnt count i only use it for browsing the net and messages
I don't get why anyone would want to play this instead of the finest games on PS3 and X360...
Minecraft first of all is not a 360 exclusive it is on the PC.Second it is definitely just a timed console exclusive like most third party 360 exclusives. Third it is on the Sony Xperia Play so it will more than likely arrive on both the PS3 and Vita at a later date.
Out of all the exclusives on Live Arcade, why would PS3-only dudes get angry about this junk?
How is that unfair?? Microsoft paid the dev for Xbox 360 exclusivity, Sony did not. Simple.
Minecraft is nerd exclusive :p overhyped "game"...
Minecraft is no way better than lbp. infact they can keep minecraft
You would say that CELL!!!
Also available on Xperia Play
It would probably 5x tougher to port it to the PS3. Some people can't dig the Minecraft. They're not hip enough.
did everyone forget minecraft is coming to the vita of course its another timed exclusive like bioshock lost planet limbo etc just give it time and the game will be ported seriously it not that hard
