Microsoft have confirmed the date that Xbox 360 players will finally be able to purchase Minecraft from Xbox Live.
Minecraft needs no introduction after having sold over 5 million copies on the PC alone, with mobile versions springing up and now the Xbox Live version too. It’s not exactly a secret that Xbox players have been pining for Minecraft, making do (shall we say?) with similar titles FortressCraft and Total Miner instead which have since been the best selling indie games on Xbox Live.
The release date of Minecraft on Xbox Live is May 9th 2012 and the game will cost a tremendous 1600 MSP – that converts to a whole $20/£13.20.
This works out to be a little cheaper than it is full price on PC right now and a good job considering the Xbox 360 version gets less features, as we detailed here.
