This was the funniest thing I've seen in days. I <3 you, Mojang.

Posted by krabboss

Come on, obviously Notch is going to celebrate the release of the game with a nice, long vacation. Maybe even two of them.

@Mumrik: You sir, are a douche.

Feel free to explain why.

I just linked the HD version that was put out for free originally. You may love paying for the premium benefits (videos and whatnot) here, but it seems silly to support them actively making the product worse for the rest of us. Especially when it concerns promotional material.

Honestly, you come across as a misguided elitist ass. Have a nice day.

I 100% agree. I mean it's not like I can't go on youtube and watch the same damn video. I'm fine with them giving me crappy 360p video for actual GB content but stuff I can find all over the place, really guys?

Duder, a lot of time and effort goes into cloning other people's YouTube videos to your own YouTube account. 720p...that's like twice the work or something. That's just math.

Still don't have any interest in playing Minecraft....

This was actually a really awesome trailer. Good job mojang!

If you verent a sub, you were getting 480p videos before(not a big difference) so stop whining. This saves Whiskey Media alot of money since they use less bandwith. If you want HD video then go subscribe. If not, go to youtube, your there already.

what's up with the shitty quality videos?

Shut. Your. Mouth.

There's only one valid descriptive word to describe Notch: adorable.

Actually, they were getting 360p videos before, not 480p. But the bitstream was higher than youtube uses, so there is a slight quality drop.

You don't need to subscribe to get that video in 720p, because it isn't Giant Bomb content. That's the point. They took someone else's 720p video on YouTube and posted it at a lower resolution to their own YouTube account. It just feels kind of dirty. I'm not sure what they're trying to prove by downrezzing other people's videos when it is, in fact, NOT their own bandwidth. They could have even simply linked to the original YouTube video instead of copying it, which just makes it extra weird.

Telling people to subscribe to get this video in 720p doesn't even make much sense as a response to a discussion that started with a link to the original 720p video on YouTube.

I want to give them the benefit of a doubt and say that this is probably just a result of miscommunication between the people calling the shots and other people on the staff, because it really just doesn't seem to me like the kind of thing they would do, but in any case, it's pretty dumb and they may even get a cease and desist notification if they tried pulling something like this with promotional content from some companies, using it to sell subscriptions on their own site in this manner, regardless of whether it was directly intended or not.

From the start of GB, every video is in 360p on the site. How about that?

Posted by SomeJerk

If you guys can give whiskeymedia ten grand a month so they won't have to host non-premium videos on 360p youtube, go right ahead guys.

Posted by uomoartificiale

I have to remember NOT to come to this site to watch trailers. While feature content is OK even in 360p, this doesn't make any sense, it serves only the purpose to let me utter once more the sentence: "I have to remember NOT to come to this site to watch trailers".

How about a great market strategy to build "largish" sites, eh WhiskeyMedia?

Posted by Jimbo7676

Uh, lol, you people complaining about the resolution don't have bigger issues in your life? The HD resolution is cool but it is the least of reasons I am subscribed.

Don't you have bigger issues in life than complaining about people complaining about the resolution? Don't I have bigger issues in life than complaining about complaining about complaining....

Here, I will link to the original 720p version of this video in YouTube, like someone else already did:

Gosh, man, I'm probably going to be living on the streets after doing this. Linking to the 720p version of a video I had nothing to do with creating sure did cost me a lot of money.

I have that same mega64 shirt Notch is wearing.

You can watch trailers on literally hundreds of other sites like gametrailers or youtube. I come here (and subscribed) for the original content.

Anyone wanna discuss the video, or just bitch and moan about... resolution?

Posted by Shaka999

I think I found that way funnier than they intended...

Me. I find it really good and down to earth, in some way. Maybe not the best in terms of production value, but how else would you make a trailer for f-ing Minecraft?

Posted by Bollard

People who think 360p is a shitty resolution for watching in a video window which is 640x360p are retarded.

I watch most things in 240p and whilst the text is sometimes unreadable, its bearable. You don't deserve the internet you have.

Is that supposed to somehow excuse them doing this with third party content that is already free on YouTube in 720p? There's really no good justification for it at all. I get why they do it with their own content. That is part of what they sold their subscriptions on, and on top of them obviously wanting money, they don't want to upset anyone who subscribed for that reason.

To take an already existing video on YouTube and downconvert it and repost it to YouTube, though, just seems sleazy. It's either an oversight or it's sleazy. That's how it is. Given the "rumored" events that led to the formation of this site in the first place, I kind of hesitate to throw around that word, but this doesn't sit right with me. It's not like it's some kind of major inconvenience to me or something. It isn't. The fact that I have to go somewhere else to see it in 720p, I could hardly care less about, in and of itself. Like I said, it just seems sleazy.

I think that posting a lower resolution version of something already on YouTube to YouTube is pretty dumb, regardless of what the resolution is.

(I guess if you want to be technical, the original version doesn't have the ESRB warning.)

@Forum_User: My comment wasn't really a response to that, it was more to the people calling 360p a "shitty" resolution.

Always sign off with a good beard. This video is gamer approved.

Posted by TwilitEnd656

Dude, Minecraft is INTENSE.

Posted by Subjugation

I don't know if non-subs can access the Whiskey Media Radio Show podcast page at all, but they discuss HD in the latest show and the vast majority of us are arguing on your behalf to have HD for everyone. Some of the attitudes I see make me reconsider why we're trying to help you at all though. (Non-subs have always been watching 360p since the beginning. The bit-rate on GB's player is higher than Youtube's though, so there is a difference is quality. Two videos can have the same resolution but vastly different quality. Bit-rate.)

On to what these comments are supposed to be about ... I loved the silly, lighthearted nature of the trailer. Mojang is full of some cool dudes.

Posted by gregoryc

<3 Minecraft, though I never got into the game all "hardcore". Such a great group of developers, I wish them all the best.

Posted by TheHumanDove

good trailer no matter HOW you slice it

Posted by suicidepacmen

It's like a gallery of the worst types of nerds.

Posted by snowballingblood

@Shaka999: Me too. This is incredible.

Posted by MaddProdigy

This actually made me chuckle, very nicely done except for that awkward "this is my game" at the end

Posted by Aarny91

How about some new content then Notch?

Great ad.

Posted by ItBeStefYo

Isn't this ad making fun of the game's boring nature? strange

Posted by Babylonian

Hahahaha, this is a fucking awesome trailer. And maybe the most Swedish ting I've ever seen.

Posted by TorMasturba

A hell of a lot better than those trailers where they bring really crappy actors in to act really crappily and overly enthusiastic in order to advertise the Kinect or a new game or something.

Nope it's making fun of the hyper kinetic nature of games like MW3.

Posted by HHAP

It has been a while since I've enjoyed a trailer quite like this one!

Posted by MeatSim

They should put all those guys in those trailers for motion controller games.

Posted by drumpsycho89

I FUCKING HATE THIS "GAME"!!!!!!

Posted by tavit

It was exited for me like one years ago. Now it's so boring. I still waiting for mine craft 4d or mine craft galaxy!
