Minecraft for Nintendo Switch the Best Version - Time

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

KwietStorm_BLM1535d ago

So exactly like he said, it's [apparently] the best version because it's the Switch version.

Rimeskeem1535d ago

Why bring up the Vita troll.

BiggerBoss1535d ago

So it's not the best. Just the most convenient?

_-EDMIX-_1535d ago

? 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.

Concertoine1535d ago


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.

Lockdown5551535d ago

Seriously, lol. People comparing the Switches portability to a laptop is just laughable.

Prince_TFK1535d ago

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.

Neonridr1535d ago

@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.

UnHoly_One1535d ago (Edited 1535d ago )

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

FinalomegaS1535d ago

you would think over the years they would get more civil...

just keeps getting worst...

Cobra9511535d ago

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).

Lockdown5551535d ago

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.

ElementX1535d ago

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.

bow2yoda1535d ago

wow is in the millions... minecraft is in the billions.

kevnb1535d ago

Minecraft is nowhere near billions sold...

BiggerBoss1535d ago

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.

bow2yoda1533d ago

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.

Yohshida1535d ago

Minecraft is on track to be the best selling game of all time

inStereo1535d ago (Edited 1535d ago )

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.

Patriot4Life1535d ago

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.

akurtz1535d ago

you have no clue why people were laughing

Patriot4Life1535d ago (Edited 1535d ago )

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.

_-EDMIX-_1535d ago (Edited 1535d ago )

? 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.

yomfweeee1535d ago

They paid $2.5 billion and it is doubtful they have made that back already.
