I have to admit that I find absolutely no interest in Minecraft. I was never interested in it before it was announced for Xbox Live Arcade and that didn’t change once it did release. Why did this game sell over 3 million units after its release? The game costs 1600 Microsoft Points. For those of you who haven’t “mined” a calculator in the game, that’s over $60 million!
Is it a ming trick being played on people to have them interested in a game that sets the visual progress in games back a few decades?
I suppose that might be what it is ultimately. Minecraft is simplicity like none before it. You’re given a landscape and it’s your choice to do what you will with it. And apparently people love creating. How many of you have been sucked in Minecraft either before Xbox or after?
Someone please tell me how this game managed to suck over 3 million people in!
