Minecraft Will Be Xbox 360-Exclusive (TRAILER)
We heard back at E3 2011 that when Minecraft made its migration to consoles, it would be heading to the Xbox 360 first. But guess what? “First” has become “only.” Sucks to be you, Playstation 3 owners. And Wii fans, to a lesser extent (because seriously, who plays the Wii anymore).
Markus “Notch” Persson confirmed the exclusivity deal on his Twitter account. The game will appear on Xbox Live in Spring 2012, which means PC owners of the game will have been playing and enjoying the release for, like, five months or so. Notch mentioned a while back that the full release of the game would come at the end of MineCon, which is taking place Nov. 18 in Las Vegas.
