Thanks, CNN.

Hopefully they do a better job of porting it than they did porting Oblivion, I remember there were a couple of problems with it at launch on the PS3.

You don't care about minecraft Ahmad, go pay attention to BF3 news.

Don't see why you would get Minecraft on 360 over PC. I don't see how they could do things like mods, and texture packs on a 360, because some of those things are much needed.

I'm still waiting to see what happens with this.

You damn well know he meant patched versions of the game.

It says expansions and add ons are included under this right in the text, so you're already wrong about that.
 
I don't see what's wrong with setting up Alpha members with a free copy at launch, all it would do is guarantee a large player base at launch making the newer versions still have some appeal to both new and veterans players despite the fact they likely won't include anything the PC version doesn't.

Oh, nevermind :( I didn't realise that you were also going to tell us the answer...

Exactly, show some effin' support to those who got you where you are to begin with.
 
If it wasn't for the people who bought it in Alpha Minecraft wouldn't be big enough to be on 360.

I'm excited to see how this goes.  I picked up Fortress Craft and I'll surely be picking up Minecraft also.

Notch replied to this and basically explained why that isn't gonna happen (First commentor xNotch is Notch):

I'm incredibly interested in Minecraft and only play console games, so I'm happy. I wonder if I should just get it for PC, but I'd rather play with a real controller.

@TheGreatGuero: Get it for PC, on Console you'd miss out on all the cool texture packs and mods. Also the Giant Bomb and Tested servers.

I have Minecraft on PC and will be getting it on 360 (provided the price is reasonable) 
Because many of the people I play with on 360 would be tons of fun to play Minecraft with but don't play on PC 
 
The fact that 4J Studios is doing it has me a little worried though, 
Perfect Dark wasn't what I would consider a "good" port 
But we'll have to wait and see
