Sorry, but for $26.95 it is so not worth it. The Xbox version is only 1600, that's $20 and they are already seeing updates that are making it equal to the PC version.

I know we could have pre-purchased it for much less but come on, it's Minecraft, hardly worth $25.

Now maybe if we can get a Linux launcher...

Mods and custom maps make the PC version many times better.

Also there is a version for Linux available on the website, or are you referring to something else?
 
Minecraft is hardly worth $5.00 let alone $26.95! And after the dev's Windows 8 comments I would rather warez the game than every pay for. But then again the game is not even worth that so there would be no need for that ether.

The Xbox version is still many updates behind the PC version.

I'd say it's worth it. 1 time pay, you can create just about anything, make your own story lines, if you can program you can make your own mod's to do different things such as making machines dig for you or making a whole new dimension such as space/moon.

To sum it up. If you like lego's, this game is like a virtual survival lego game. If you dont like such, then most likely you wont like minecraft.

??? there still several updates behind on the xbox to make it equal to the PC. No hunger bar = no ability to run. No creative mode. Not even a way to include mods as of yet.

As for playing on linux, Guess you didn't click the "Show all platforms" or else you would of seen "Minecraft for Linux / Other" :p

Mojang is screwing themselves over, the majority of people will buy a new computer with Windows 8, realize they can't play Minecraft, so they won't buy it and Mojang loses money.
