Notch has setup a site that gives away a piece of 99 download codes for the XBLA version of Minecraft, but we need to assemble the pieces to get a full code!
and they were all probably gone 2 minutes after he tweeted it
The way he's done it is quite clever. You only get a few letters from the 99 codes and have to pool your resources with other people to get full codes.
TBH, not sure I care about Minecraft enough to try. I'll wait for the release :) GL to those who try though.
i know, thats why i said 2 minutes and not 2 seconds
Ah, fair enough. Glad they weren't just all dumped online for first come, first serve.
uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhh *5 hours later* hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhh
Yeah haha, good luck with that. The codes are literally:
Some have a single letter mixed in.
May God have mercy upon your soul.
What notch has done is that depending on your IP will depend on what set of letters you get in your codes. So you'll need 24 other sets of codes just to potentially get 1 of those codes. The thing is, you got to search for the correct 24 codes. It's an interesting sort of competition :) But TBH i wouldnt be someone who'd dedicate my hours in the day for it :P
They are all used up. Some one posted the list of codes online http://pastebin.com/bkW22Xu...
theres always someone thats gotta kill the fun
It would be easier to just buy the game, except the game is Minecraft, so don't bother.
I was thinking more along the lines, this game was programmed by this Notch tosspot, so dont bother.
He's got 99 copies But a glitch aint one!
lol.. funny.. also i accidentally hit disagree when i mean AGREE
I wonder why this isn't on the PS3? Maybe a case of the PS3 being a litte to hard to develop for I don't know. If it is I think this may bite them in the arse because this game is awesome, and will probably sell a few 360's.
I don't think Minecraft will be a system seller. If anybody wanted it that badly they'd have downloaded it on PC, it's not that hard to run an even a decent rig. I also don't know why it's not on PS3, it could be that Mojang is a small developer so they may not have the resources to dev on PS3?

It feels to me like Microsoft had a pretty heavy hand in making this game happen, I mean they even made a few limited edition Minecraft consoles. I think Microsoft saw how popular it was on PC, and thought "hey, we want a piece of that" - thus it was made so. Remember originally it was supposed to have Kinect integration as well, and be a big push for Xbox Live. No PS3 could be less development involved, and more that Sony just didn't latch onto it like MS did. All speculation though, just my opinion from watching the development. :)
Lol why would someone buy a 360 specifically for Minecraft? It will literally play on any system and let's be honest anyone who would be remotely interested in games in any form would already own a pc or laptop: http://help.mojang.com/cust...
He should give me one for free. He promised to give everyone who bought Minecraft pre alpha every single version of the game no matter what. I should really figure out how to redeem that and get it on Android.
He asked these people not to review until Thursday, but 40 reviews went live at Noon EST today.....What's up with that?
DAMN!!!!!!!!!! I wanted one........
sorry to sound like an elitist douchbag, but seriously minecraft without mods sucks ass, so many awesome things done with mods on PC, if i wanted to i could play portal on minecraft as well as zelda
Agreed. There are some new additions to this, but nothing too great. Well, I mean not good enough to top the PC version. What is minecraft without mods? It must feel so empty.
and as people commented on top, almost ANY computer can run minecraft
