Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has broken all previous digital-sales records, selling more than any other title in the first 24 hours on Xbox Live Arcade, Microsoft today announced.
So worth the $20. I bought the PC license during beta, and getting this one soon, too.
XBLA is on fire as of late, Trials now this. It feels good to be a gamer this year. "Has Microsoft Exhausted its Supply of Xbox 360 Exclusives?" Here's you answer.
What? Its not even an exclusive! Its on PC! And its a hell of a lot easier to use as this kind of game was designed for mouse and keyboard not a joypad.
In your opinion, dude. Some people like sitting on their couches in the living room and playing on the big screen. It's all personal preference.
@MiLKJDO 1. it's not exclusive you guys seem to not understand what exclusive mean any more 2. it only 20$ .. it's not 60$ game so it easy to sell good and that article was right look at what MS will show you in E3 http://www.analoghype.com/v... and you will see that MS have left it fans long time ago what xbox360 have now is 3rd party support which both ps3/pc have so all what xbox have is ... nothing at all to define that system you can always play *Almost* every thing on xbox with out the need for xbox all you guys keep say that MS will bring a new console so that's why MS will not bring new exclusives anymore for xbox360 Sony will bring a new console too but that didn't stop them from supporting ps3 fans with Real "exclusives" and they will keep doing that even after ps4 launch now bring the disagrees
MiLKJDO Did you just give xbox 360 full credit for this game? You deserve this. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Plus dlc you will probably pay for. no custom maps 4 u. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
MiLKJDO i agree. it is a console exclusive (not exclusive to console) but i see what you mean. people on here just don't like the fact microsoft are selling mass amounts of games. microsoft don't have to throw millions into in-house development to make XBL the leading online gaming service on the market. as long as they keep supporting indie devs and providing amazing value for subscriptions then they will carry on dominating.
You do know Minecraft is on PC right? It's also the better version.... I wouldn't be surprised if this is just a timed-console-exclusive. I expect this to hit PSN before the end of this year.
Minecraft is not exclusive. But in console terms then yes it is.
People never hooked up their computer to their big tv? What a sad day.
@GraveLord MS Game Studios published Minecraft for XBLA. It's not coming to PS3. Just like Mass Effect 1 never did.
@Gamer3000: If a game is ported from PC and debuts EXCLUSIVELY on a single console, it is called a Console Exclusive.
See: The Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition, Minecraft: 360 Edition, Dust 514
@GamingPerson: I don't see where he's giving the Xbox 360 full credit for the game? And what is it with you guys? So much vitriol over this port, bringing up no mods, custom maps, etc ...
... yet if this were on Playstation 3, "Great job getting this Sony" "Ahaha, MS loses again" "Another great exclusive!" "This is made for console, it's not going to be able to do all the things that the PC version can!"
Yet, conveniently, that doesn't apply here. Strange. The butthurt is laughable.
there is a severe lack of unbiased opinions on N4G, I own a PS3 and a 360. If I say something good about xbox I am a Microsoft fanboy, say something good about a Sony game and I am Sony fanboy, I can't win. Hence the one bubble
Going by all your guy's logic then uncharted, god of war and gran turismo are not exclusive either. Idgaf that psp/vita are also owned by sony cause thats not the point.
Yeah, I'm gonna break out the XBox for the first time in a while.
That's pretty amazing. I guess it makes sense, but I kinda thought maybe people won't want to play Minecraft with a controller.
Believe it or not, there are a ton of people who prefer a controller. I don't own a PC, just a laptop, and I use that for work and a little web surfing, so I was excited to get the chance to play this game on my home console.
Well, I could see a controller being used for FPS and TPS. But to me, playing minecraft with a controller is kind of like playing an RTS. But I guess you don't need many buttons with minecraft.
I bet many own both versions. Splitscreen is the reason, but I wish it was more cross platform.
"I bet many own both versions" Like me! Both are good, but I wish the worlds were bigger on 360. Hopefully they will patch in creative mode and some other new PC features soon, but in the mean time playing on 360 with 6 guys is a blast.
360? maybe gotta get off my butt on this one.
i got it and love it! :)
Minecraft is loved on all platforms
Except on Ps3 (at this current time). Just hopefully it will come out on EVERY platform so every one can enjoy the epicness of epic.
I'll get it for Xbox too, splitscreen is cool. The PC version will always be the best though.
Some really daft comments on here as usual. 360 has some excellent games that are very much exclusive in the sense that a number of people owning pc are still unlikely to buy for that format. It's a big enough difference for a lot of people that these games are on xbox and lets not forget that Minecraft isn't always that great on plenty of lower spec pc Truth is some people will buy a 360 for these so called non exclusives so that can't be all that bad for ms
XBLA is pretty awesome. So many great titles available there.
Sony is probably soo mad! What game is better then minecraft for playstation to use
Lol, go back to your hole.
