Is this coming to PSN ? Just curious because MS hasn't been making many core games but in the last couple of months they have gotten this and the witcher 2. Is this their strategy? Get PC hits on their system?

Not coming to PSN or atleast for now.

Word has it that MS paid Notch a good amount of money to keep this exclusive so I would not expect a PSN release any time soon.

PC 360 exclsuive strategy that MS is using is smart move - MS knows that a large chunk of gamers are not willing to play games on a PC but want to play PC games.

Also I think MS knows something that we do not know, maybe PC gaming will take off again next gen or maybe PC's will become part of our living room and become more user friendly that even my 5 year old son can use it to play and purchase games.

Expect the next Xbox to be more like a PC than a console.

I think that the biggest problem for PS3 and Minecraft is that it doesnt have shared RAM for CPU and GPU. Minecraft is a RAM intensive game for the CPU and looked how much they had to limit it in the 360 version.

As far as we know it's an Xbox exclusive however they did not clarify if it is or is not timed exclusive.
