This isn't really surprising. I bet a lot of people are like me, I kept hearing about this Minecraft game but I don't play on or have a PC, so when I found out it was coming to a game console I was all on board.

I must admit, its a lot of fun and I can see why so many people are enjoying this game.

Sad day for gamers when a gaming noob calls one of the most successful critically acclaimed independent games in history a "casual game."

Just get out.

Casual? PC games are not messing up the industry! It's the CoD buyers! That is all console and mobile.

Facebook is not really considered pc gamers.

But Kinect users are considered console gamers.

There's the door buddy.


To have the gall to sit down and call Minecraft, MINECRAFT, a casual game ... I'm not sure there's a term to describe that type of idiocy.

Yodagamer1991d ago

Just because a game has something called imagination and creativity doesn't make it a casual game

You do realize Minecraft is in the Xperia Play...

Just saying.

Obviously you've never tried it, so just don't comment.
Minecraft is in no way casual.

Summons751991d ago

yes I have and I truly think the rock sitting outside my house could play that game. It's so brain dead easy because there is no challenge, the developers clearly have no creativity if they want you to create for them, and there is absolutely no story or point to what I am running around building block if I wanted to do that I would use my nephews legos

this game is casual crap like call of duty and all these people are just butt hurt trolls because they can not play a real game

Minecraft is a very addictive game. I'm not surprised about this news. What I'm surprised is that such a powerful machine is being used to play this type o game. MS is neglecting users by focusing too much in the casual game market.

if its good enough for millions of high end pc gamers, its certainly good enough for 360 gamers.

kevnb1991d ago

not surprised, the game has been gaining momentum. It probably wasn't that much investment to bring it over to 360 either.
