And for those hoping Minecraft to be part of 12 days of XMas sale, well...

http://www.joystiq.c...k-units-a-week/

I Think I can see it POSSIBLY going for 1200 points first whenever it goes on sale, but 800 seems to be a big stretch anytime in the coming months.


Is there a list of something that says it is on it?
Also, when does the 12 days of Christmas sale start? Would it start 12 days before Christmas and end on Christmas or does it start later and include upto new year also?

I wouldn't mind picking up minecraft for 800 MS points.

Uh, I was basically saying it seems doubtful it'll go on sale for the 12 days of XMas and whenever it's deemed worthy to go on sale that the best we'll probably see is 1200 points.

No one tell MS, but if there's any kind of discount on Minecraft, I will bite. Not expecting a big price drop or sale for a very long time.

Its starts before Christmas (around 20th-21st) and ends on New Years Day.

Why would they put a game that is racking up record-breaking numbers on sale?

Maybe a show of good faith or just a thanks to Xbox players. That being said, I don't think it will be on sale this holiday. I had a copy I won and couldn't sell it for more than $10 on the trade thread. So anyone who's actually interested in the game could probably get it on the trade thread for a decent price.

I agree, but I hope we're wrong. Maybe by Christmas 2013 or sooner.

If you want to play Minecraft, buy it. I don't get why people are so hesitant to buy things they really want. Only wait on things you're on the fence about. For me it's stuff like 'Hell Yeah' and 'Dust.'

But shit like Fez, Mark Of The Ninja, Walking Dead... i bought those on release.

And of all games, you KNOW exactly what Minecraft is. Either you want it or you don't.

I want to play Minecraft, but I don't want to pay $20 for it. And a lot of people probably feel the same.

Well I would say it's perfect. The holidays are one day sales and just dropping the price 400 points would get them numbers almost like the launch for only one day. Rather than a DOTW sale or something. People on the fence would be highly motivated to buy.

it's worth $20 though if you truly WANT to play it.

Everyone who thinks it's worth $20 has bought it already. Everyone who wants it but not for $20 is waiting for a sale.

Just cause I want it doesn't mean I have to pay full price. I refuse to pay $20 for an arcade game. I have difficulty justifying $15 for an arcade game.

50,000 people disagree with you every week. That is a lot of sales for an arcade title especially considering how many million they have already sold.

I would guess that when most of the arcade titles go on sale for the first time they aren't selling 5,000 a week, some are probably less than 500....

This is one of those games that may never go on sale, at least not until they stop updating it. Every update has added more to the game and made it worth more however they have all been free so far. Once they start selling the new content as DLC then you will see it go on sale.

So glad I picked up Minecraft for $15 from Best Buy on release day. :lol: It'll probably go on sale around the time the Xbox 420 is out.

I think the AC Brotherhood and Revelations add-ons just dropped in price. I paid 400 for the Da Vinci Disappearance and The Lost Archive. Pretty sure they were both still 800 last week.

They're part of a Ubisoft sale running through early next week.

I finally won the scratch and match also. It's kinda funny actually. I bought Guarian Heros last time it was Dotw. I finally got around to playing it yesterday. After beating it I went to the avatar store to put on all the Guardian Hero avatar rewards that I unlocked. Immediately afterwards I played the scratch and match and won the Venus fly trap prop, making my avatars GH gear complete :D

The game is brilliant and really should be played by everyone. It's a ton of fun. The price is better than you're going to find anywhere else, really. Unless of course you get lucky. I'm gonna buy it at this price and trade in my hard copy to Gamestop for $20.

Yeah i think it's worth it. It's a pretty hard disc to find actually, so the price is fair. I'm not a huge fan of rockstar games but i'm enjoying this. Great soundtrack.

Just happened to spot one in a Gamestop a few moments ago for about $30 used. Yowza.
