It's another great reason to get a Switch
Oh stop it. They gave it a high score because it's on the Switch, which makes it the best portable version, and deliberately skirted around the fact that it's missing various features, like private servers, mods, voice chat with friends, etc. If portability makes the best version of minecraft then the PC version played on a laptop is the best version of Minecraft. This, is little better than the Vita version of the game. It's fine, but hardly the 'best version'.
It squashes the Vita version in every way tbf which is 540p 25 fps with much less blocks and smaller levels. I know its hard to accept that the Switch is excellent but it just is lol.... If u already own it on console or PC then skip this version. Otherwise Switch makes the case for being most convenient version
So exactly like he said, it's [apparently] the best version because it's the Switch version.
Why bring up the Vita troll.
So it's not the best. Just the most convenient?
? Really? I thought the switch version came what some of those features already? If that's the case it sounds like the PC version is always going to be the default best version.
I would take Minecraft on my Switch over my PS4. I don't have to sit in front of my TV to enjoy it. Yeah, taking out my laptop on the bus/subway would be super ideal.. smh
1. You can play the PS4 version on Vita. 2. Laptops are just as portable as the Switch. Neither fits in a pocket.
@WeAreLegion Not backing the author's assertion but no, a laptop is absolutely not as portable as the switch. You'd either need to use the trackpad or bring a bluetooth controller, and have a place to set it down (or burn the shit out of your lap). There's a reason you dont see many people with gaming laptops, especially in public.
Seriously, lol. People comparing the Switches portability to a laptop is just laughable.
Laptop are as portable as the Switch? I had seen many delusional comments here on N4G but this just took it to a new height.
@Legion - first off, you need to buy a $200 accessory to do that first. Secondly, are you pairing your Vita to your phone first before you try to remotely connect to your PS4 at home? Love to see how that works out. And I almost spat out my coffee when you told me that a laptop is just as portable as a Switch.
My Xbox One is almost as portable as a Switch, too. I just need a trailer for my 75" TV and a generator to power everything. Other than that, it's nearly identical.
The salt on this website man lol
you would think over the years they would get more civil... just keeps getting worst...
No console version can be modded or use private servers. The voice chat is the one negative. On the plus side, it can be played on the go (or on a TV).
Exactly. I think the PC version still has a lot of advantages that consoles don't but once voice chat hits this fall the Switch version will truly be the best console version.
They never mention world of Warcraft as one of the best selling games, they had 14 million subscribed at once and still have millions subscribeb to this day. They must have outsold Minecraft easily.
I really doubt WoW has outsold Minecraft. Just on the systems I've owned I bought MC on 360, PS3, PS4?, Xbox One, my android phone, I bought a copy for my mom's iPad, and I have the original PC and Win 10 editions.
wow is in the millions... minecraft is in the billions.
Minecraft is nowhere near billions sold...
Lol if you think Minecraft sold billions I think you need to get a brain and think about how many people are on this earth.
first and foremost... i was not talking copys of the game as much as i was referring to the amount of money that the ip has brought in... eg game sales... spin off sales.... merch.... upcoming movie possibility. wow will never ever come close. now little boss... use your brain.
Minecraft is on track to be the best selling game of all time
From Wikipedia's entry on Minecraft: "As of February 2017, over 121 million copies have been sold across all platforms, making it the second best-selling video game of all time, only behind the various releases of Tetris."
You Switch haters really piss me off.
I remember when MS bought MineCraft for $2 Billion and people were laughing...MS has made that $2 Billion back in two years and is now swimming in money.
you have no clue why people were laughing
Actually I do...jealous PS loyalist who hate everything MS. They were saying that this was a stupid move and MS paid too much - in the end it was a smart move since PC,PS4, Switch, DS, Apple, Android and Vita users love the game. http://n4g.com/news/1590370...
? Lol I don't think anybody was really doubting or questioning if they would make that money back Minecraft as an actual brand itself is extremely popular with a crap load of merchandise and cross media The possibility of Microsoft also continuing to sell it on multiple platforms also boosted they're likeliness of them making that money back. If anything if your beef is with those people that specifically made those statements actually reply to them specifically.
They paid $2.5 billion and it is doubtful they have made that back already.
keep sucking them Nintendo balls lol
I'm sorry, but still going to need more new/original hits like Zelda before I even consider the switch. Just more and more ports of old games
Well consider this game isn't necessarily A deciding factor for purchasing the switch as much as it's another game that people who initially purchased it can play as an option I mean those games are still coming if you consider Splatoon 2 and Mario Odyssey are still coming.
Would this be considered a "Very Fake Review" ?
only if you consider any high score for playstation game a fake review
"Best version" hahahahahahahaahahaha
For portablily nothing beats the Gear VR version of Minecraft. Portable, but also fully immersive .
What I don't understand about Minecraft is you can't simply upload your world and/or download other people's right? Like LBP and Mario Maker. I just don't understand the point without that. I have no interest in making levels but I could download other people amazing creations I could see getting into Minecraft.
Yes you can
And you can even play with other people on your World
How? I thought you could only do it on a PC and it wasn't easy. I've only messed with the Vita version but I saw no way to look at and download other people's levels.
On switch it asks me if I want to play online. You can save and upload your World and others can download it with the generated Code I think. Cant look it up right now, im at work.
thats the problem you judge it based on Vita version which do not have all the options as the switch version.......get the switch version and you will enjoy it much better
Minecraft on the go with proper buttons and on a good screen is awesome. I have been playing minecraft on my phone for awhile now and i miss physical buttons.
I definitely did not but Switch for Minecraft
The best console Version yes. PC is a whole other Level with all the mods
Technically the PS4 and XB1 versions of the game are better if you ignore portability. The world size of Minecraft on Switch is smaller plus the resolution is inferior as well. But like I said before add portability into the mix and it's one of the best versions out there. It's vastly superior to any other mobile versions of the game.
they specifically said best version, yes pc have mods and etc.......but switch have convenience factor
sounds fitting for that little weak machine,
I love playing Minecraft in handheld mode. But best version? This is why I dislike gaming media more and more. They write so much crap just to get those revenue clicks.
its their opinion and you upset for it being different to yours???? smh
When it's clearly not the best version then yes!
And Street fighter is also 10 and all games on the switch are all 10, even if this version doest bring nothing new and lack features that all versions got for years. Like other games on the switch.
so if someone prefer a version on the switch they must be lying????? or do the switch make the game more enjoyable because you do not have to wait until you get home to play
Perfect score? Do you know what does it mean? more enjoyable. You can be a Nintendo fan, but that doesnt mean that you must be blind. Its not even the first portable version of the game... It doesnt do anything new and lacks so many option that are common.
Multiple best versions to cater to different needs. I'd buy it if I had Switch, making it the err... 7th? Platform I've bought it for, lol. They all have their pros and cons, but Switch seems great. Mobile plus a controller is potentially better in some ways though. Infinite worlds, mostly.
The Mario Theme is kinda cool
Great. Probably a really good match. Too bad every person on the planet already played two or three version of that game.
The Switch Hype Train is in effect. GTFO!
Mario Kart, Minecraft, Zelda. The Switch has its three must have killerapps merely 2 months after release.
Yeah, it's perfect for old games / ports.
i forgot, it's only acceptable and a great idea when it's on a nintendo console lol
Can't wait till this overrated artificial demand last gen graphics console falls flat on its face like wii u did after year 1. Nintendo fans are so delusional with every switch game being the best .
