    Sam, June 28th. Look at the bottom.

  • zyther666

    cant wait for it

  • Lizard

    I thought that UK would have first realease as they are based in scotland

    • iTidez

      They are actually based in Sweden, not Scotland ;) Still it is a bit strange…

      • Hero

        4J studios are based in scotland

        • Fenyyx


        • Stephenrad

          he’s talking about Mojang which is located in Sweden

      • paul


    • Peace1498

      Um Scotland… you Know it was made in Sweden not Scotland…

  • Kenneth

    How much will it be in ireland ?

  • sinano

    I am pretty sure I saw a stack of these at Sam’s club last Sunday.

  • Anonymous

    Hey will it be better to get the disc or will it be exactly the same

    • Minecraft Player Since Day 1

      exactly the same!

  • mairazl

    Brazil too! I thought we’d be left out! Nice! :-D

  • Fan

    Columbia or Colombia?

  • Random Person

    Today, Already!?

    • ??????

      Yes, Today

  • Crono

    So for people like me who are not currently connected to Xbox LIVE and want to experience the thrill of Minecraft, will the retail disc version have the skin packs? There were some nice free skin packs like the birthday and summer of arcade skin packs that I had to miss out on, I can only hope those are on disc to be up-to-date. I look forward to finally buying Minecraft for the 360.

  • Dev_Braderz

    It states that the disc version will contain all the same features and content included in the current version however 4jstudios have already confirmed that the disc version will only be TU10 but will include a trial version of live to be able to download updates ( not sure of the live trial period But PlayXBLA should get there source info correct before announcing stuff like this) also, why the hell does korea get a copy before the UK even tho 4j is based in the UK? I smell a politically motivated reason as to releasing to the US first……

    • Benzel

      A politically motivated reason?? Maybe its because Xbox is American???

    • Russell

      everyone who has an xbox with no XBL is able to download any updated through the free silver version. there are 2 versions of XBL silver and gold. silver allowss for updates for the games and gold allows you to download DLC’s and have online multiplayer along with the usual benefits (netflix,hulu, comcast, ect.) no need to have a trial version anyone that is able to get online can have a free silver account.

    • GermanScientist

      The reason that the game is being released on disc is so that people without an internet connection can get the game aswell. They’re simply stating that if you get the disc version you will be able to update the game if you do connect your Xbox to the internet and play online all you want if you’ve got gold.

    • zatos21ashtree

      Because America and Korea bought a shippment before UK. And microsoft is an American company.

      • Caiden Hugunin


  • Bob

    So happy

  • Ben

    If I bought it in the Xbox live arcade, I need Buy it again? D:

    • charlie

      if u have downloaded it no :)

  • Daniel Cassell

    Do We get it free if we have the digital version of the game ?

  • Ross patrick mcnally

    this sucks it doesn’t even have any new updates:(

    • Dominic

      The xbox 360 edition had lots of updates ( is now at the point the ender dragon and the end came in minecraft) but it keep updating the game to make it nearly the same as the pc version.

      But i have to admit it does take a while before they release an update =I

  • mikey

    i only bought one because i thought it would be like the pc version

  • NaUgHtYbEaR149

    Woop Woop i already have it :D

  • NaUgHtYbEaR149

  • Ernest L.Richard

        What constructive criticism you have. Take your own advice.

      • Coco

        Kill yourself.

      • John Conrad

        Whats wrong with having it on the ps3?

        • Ernie Mink

          The only gaming machine worth having is Microsoft PERIOD, END OF STORY. GET OVER IT. Just like the ONLY cell phone, operating system and browser worth having to be current and to cover all bases is Microsoft, PERIOD. END OF STORY.

          • Thor-Morten


          • Charlie

            Wait what, did you just say IE is a good browser, go have a christmas

          • Connor Gordon

            So can you still say that after the PS4 press confernce about using games?
            the xbone can suck it

          • TruthDefender

            And the Minecraft PI for Raspberry PI?

      • Emma Hunt

        Kill yourself…..what does this have to do with anything? They were saying they want it for PS3 and I TOTALLY AGREE!!! Want it for playstation 3 SOOOOOO bad!

        • dude991

          get xbox they not putting it on ps3 into next year

          • soulblade

            Everybody settle down.I would’ve preffered you ignored that,because I was simply having a bad day.I appolagize if I came off rude or angry.

          • TehNynja

            We forgive you. See how much influence you have on the world? Now use that to change lives. :)

    • Dylan Taylor

      It might make an appearance on the PS4. It is very difficult to convert the code from pc to ps3 compared to pc to xbox.

      • George

        The only reason it’s on Xbox and not PS3 is because Mojang signed and exclusivity contract with Microsft, not because there’s a supposed higher difficulty in porting to PS3.

        • Coco

          ^ Wrong, what he stated above is why it’s not for ps3. Lrn2code

          • EIREXE

            I have a ps3 developer kit, and all I can say is that it’s FAR EASY to port from c++ to ps3, you only have to redo low level language stuff.

            Also minecraft uses java, minecraft for xbox is on c++, it had to be done FROM SCRATCH.

            Another thing that ps3 development is better than xbox is because it’s just a linux sistem, just compile, in xbox you have to redo everything using xbox API, wich is a f*** pain in the ass.

          • http://suomiwp.com/ Jesse Leskinen

            I don’t think you know much about developing for Xbox… If you have a game for Windows that uses the Windows APIs (like DirectX, XInput) it can be as simple as recompiling the game to xenon ppc cpu. For PS3 you would need a lot of code changes. Think about porting a windows game to linux.

          • heimer

            Um, no, if you follow Notch on twitter, you can see way back when, he made the decision that it wouldn’t be on PS3 not because it was harder to code, but because when he signed with Microsoft, they agreed that they wouldn’t allow it to come to PS3. It has nothing to do with coding.

          • meep

            are you retarded? mojang signed a contract with microsoft. Lrn2google

      • ReK Grin

        ha no it will not come because microsoft has a contract with mojang thats why its on the 360 and not ps3 and sony didnt didnt do anything with mojang

    • chin


      • chin

        you can want

    • Rach’Elle

      Me too !!!

    • Yousef Abdalwahab

      ME 2 BRO

    • Julio Mario Baute Sepulveda

      sorry XD

    • sam_walker

      the minecraft console version is xbox only mainly because sony and microsoft studios fefuse to work with each other

      • Matt Collins

        Ummmm no, I think it has more to do with PS3s RAM structure. Xbox allows the 256 mb of system RAM to combine with the 256 MB of dedicated gaming RAM for a total of 512MB. PS3 has 256mb only. Minecraft maps are small enough on 360.

    • Bob_Is_Jo_Mum

      Minecraft will never come out on ps3

      • Sean Carr


        • Emma Hunt

          Why good? It will make PS3 players (like myself) happy and will make Minecraft a ton more money and get them a ton more users. :)

          • romar

            That is very true that it would get minecraft more money and I can’t wait OMFG.

      • TehNynja

        You don’t know that. ;) You’re only assuming. And assuming makes an… you get it.

    • Joseph Richard

      Won’t happen, unfortunately.

  • pedro henrique

    Infelizmente nao tem ainda no brazil mas espero que tenha logo pois nao ocupa tanto espaço no disco de memoria

  • pedro henrique

    Unfortunately not yet have in Brazil but hopefully as soon not have much space in disk memory

  • Austin Norman

    Sweet! I’ve always wanted to play Minecraft, but my PC is not compatible with it. I also can’t afford live, so with the disc version I can finally play Minecraft!

    • Bogdan Seria

      XBOX Live is free, Gold membership is not. You can get Live for free so you can experience it without paying.

  • Chrisx

    no disc for pc in canada yet? My mom wants to try it but doesnt have a credit card or paypal.

  • Mrlol

  • Sean Carr

  • calum witt

    Dear PS3 players:
    To be on PS3 Mojang should be a bigger well-known company, thats why they can’t add a PS version.
