Cannot order it yet online, but you can preorder it in the store for $15, saves you $5.

"When I printed out the preorder ticket though, it said I would owe $15 at the register, instead of $20. It's priced the same on the website. Either pre-ordering it at the store or waiting to buy it when it is available on the website will net you a code given to you through e-mail tomorrow at some point. If you wait until tomorrow to buy it at the store, the code will be on your receipt and they will e-mail you the code as well, just in case."

See how long it lasts and if it'll be $15 on the website when it releases tonight at midnight instead of "coming soon." I won't be going to one tonight to try and preorder it, so if someone does, tell us your experience!

EDIT: Currently works in store and gives you the code right away, allowing you to download it as soon as you get home!

It totally works. Just got back from BB and with a $10.00 GC I had it came out to $5.00. The code is printed on the receipt and sent through the email you give.

You wanna know the best part?....... I'M PLAYING IT RIGHT NOW!!!!

So not only do you get it cheaper, but you can have access to it early.



EDIT: Still might work in stores as of today (May 9):

I can. I went to BB after the price went up to 19.99 online, and bought it for 15.00 + tax at B&M. I asked an employee if they had it. He said they had been selling them all day, printed out a voucher on the electronic kiosk and we paid for it up at the cashier.

No. Heard you can join random players' worlds. No servers. If host leaves, you leave and go back to yours.

You get a preorder ticket which you bring back tomorrow and get the code on your receipt, and it seems like they email it to you as well.

Yes, you are right.
I thought it was online (anyone can join you), invite only, friends only, and offline. Looks like it is just friends and offline. Not too bad for me, since I never played Minecraft before and will playing it splitscreen a lot of the time, which is why it appealed to me as a first time MineCraft player.

Source:
http://www.hookshoti...creen-and-more/

"The game will support four-player local splitscreen and eight players over Xbox Live, and you can mix and match the splitscreen and online modes. Also, you can only play with people on your Friends List, so there’s no griefing from strangers."

Thats kinda cool i guess though, i know i have heard from people and friends about having awesome things destroyed by random strangers.

Atleast you wont have to worry about that nearly as much (Or if you did, you'll know who to rage at)

I also saved a 1600 point card especially for this game so I almost bypassed this, until I remembered my spare $10 best buy gift card... oh dear. Looks like you saved me a ton of spacebucks, OP, thank you.

If you're just looking to get this off Live, then things usually pop-up shortly after 2 am Pacific Time.

It should have been at this price to begin with. I was going to pass at 1600 but 1200 seems more reasonable. If its still this price at Best Buy tomorrow, I'll pick it up.

EDIT: Oh its available now...cool. Going down to BB in a bit.

Yeah, I don't think I can change the title to include: "in stores now!" huh?

But hopefully the first post helps. I'll fix it up a bit so people know to go to the store now if they can.
