Awesome. Would you be able to log in with your Minecraft account or will you have to by a another account that only works on Xbox?

If this is Kinect only, I'll be so pissed off. And it better not be like that stupid Fortresscraft, which was so boring.

I hope this comes to disc instead of XBLA i have had my 360 since they came out and have never spent a single dime on XBLA i've browsed but nothing caught my sight and it would be magical to me if this was on disc but that's just me

So do you have to have the Kinect to play this? I got a Kinect for Christmas and sold it a week later because it's lame. Kinect is cool if you're under 10 and I'm going to be pissed if it only comes out on the kinect.

I have a laptop. It is poop. This is a blessing. It is no doubt the PC version will always be better but I'm extremely excited for this. I'm curious to see if we'll have to pay again even if we already have a minecraft account. I'm guessing microsoft will find a way to screw us over, but we shall see.

This is a good thing. I can't wait for it... the Kinect function ruined it for me though.

Get it for the computer. 1. It is 50% off the computer. 2. Multiplayer will probably suck. 3. Good luck mining obsidian with the kinect.

I'm praying they don't force you to go out and buy the damn kinect. I'd rather use a controller to "control" the game.

@lifemeister Most likely, the Xbox version won't support the mods, get at least the PC version if you like user created content. Xbox doesn't have a history of supporting user-created content, AFAIK. Good example: Left 4 Dead, the PC version can play so many user-created maps you can download while the Xbox version can't. And the PC version is about $20 currently.

Was thinking about this for the PC, but not any more. Good news!

Here's hoping you can actually use a normal controller to play this...

Good for the people whose computers cant handle it... but this is kind of weird.

Are we going to have to buy it again to play it on the 360?

YES! My computer (unfortunately) can't run minecraft, so now I'll have a chance to play it! :D :D :D :D As long as the Kinect isn't required that is
