Minecraft is kicking major ass

The game is a beast on XBLA and shows how successful developers can be on the platform.

Mojang's profits have already doubled from this Port..

I'm kinda surprised it was embraced this way on a console. I wonder how many people are actively playing.

Its always number 2 on XBL every month, it is only trailing Call Of Duty, which always has a million + concurrently. So its being played a lot.

love minecraft waiting on new features like a lot of new features, but that will take some time. can mojong also make it for PS3?

LtSkittles4344d ago

Mojang won't make it for PS3, because 1) they have a deal with Microsoft, and 2) 4J Studios is behind the port, and not Mojang.

Exclusive? I've been playing this on PC for a loooooooooooong time.

Belking4343d ago

No you haven't because its not the same minecraft.

DeleteThisxx4343d ago

Of course it isn't. The PC version is superior in every way.
