I just dont understand for the life of me what there is to like about this "game". Its not fun to me. You dont do anything but stack blocks... I tried playing it on the PC for 5 minutes and just couldnt bear it. Everything was so blocky and ugly. The only fun I had was being a dick and messing up my buddys house he was building. Then I felt bad after. :-/

They should pay me $20 to play this "game"...

I know the muffin man!

Lol. Was going to post "MSRP is not a deal", but then I remembered this game is insanely overpriced at $20.

Why am I tempted to buy this when I have little to no desire to play it? Cause it's probably not going to be less than this for a loong time, that's why. Hmm...


Wow tax really hurts this deal. I don't get why Best Buy charges me tax sometimes and not others for things like this. $16.37 when it would have only cost my like $18 anwyay with the MSP I have bankrolled. Oh well, whatever. Better'd be worth it...


I did the exact same thing today. Bought it for $14 off of the trade thread before this deal posted (probably could have got it for $10-$12 if I had waited a couple more hours) just because I could, I really didn't have any desire to play it.

However, I sunk about 2 1/2 hours into it so far, it's really addictive. I'm gonna hop back in in a little while, I FINALLY understand what all the hubbub was about.

Is this even worth it? I mean, isn't the PC version more customizable? I've been interested in teh game, but don't want a watered down version.


If you have and enjoy playing the PC version, the consensus is that you don't need this version.

If you don't have Minecraft on PC, or you do have it but don't enjoy PC games/controls/anything else, than getting this version may be advised.

Just because the game doesn't appeal to you doesn't mean they have to pay you for it, you self-entitled douchebag.

Dang it.. I saved up 1600 points for this, but the cheapness in me wants to get it for $15. I don't ever really spend points on anything else though.. Hmm.

I guess I'll try ordering it online tomorrow if it's the same price. They'll just email you the code right away right? (similar to xbox live/points codes?)

I gotta agree with the douche who hates the game. I found this mind-numblingly dull, but my kid loves it. I think it's the Lego subculture - I was always an Erector set guy, never a Lego fan.

But I will buy it for my kid, because he likes it, and not every game with appeal to every gamer.

So how different is the 360 version supposed to be compared to the PC version? Similar to the mobile version?

It's a few patches behind the PC version right now, in a beta stage patch. But they said they'll be updating it frequently and trying to get it to the same patch as PC. There's some good videos on youtube

Agreed. I remember the first time I saw this game, I was like what's the point? I got into it due to survival and the fear of monsters and wanting to build as great of a fortress and a monster spawner as possible to gather supplies. It's really self driven, not game driver to like this game.

I just came back from my local Best Buy. I didn't see the Minecraft cards/slips for sale. The greeter/security guy at the front told me they don't sell individual xbox live arcade games in store anymore. Guess I should of called ahead, I was just too excited. I'll wait for it to go live on their website.

To my understanding, there are no physical cards. You order them at the game section at the register and they print a receipt

There should a large vertical touch screen within the gaming department where you can search for games/content. Search for Minecraft, and print the slip and bring it to the register to check out

I live in a state where BB always taxes me, but I didn't get a tax on this order... My total was $15.00, and I thought on digital orders such as XBL codes and iTunes cards and gift cards etc you never get taxed?
