    Haha the 12 year olds have better taste in games than the 13-28 year old frat boy drunks that line up to buy COD which is a garbage game.

    There is hope for this world after all.

    I still have not played Minecraft. To be honest, I'm afraid it will consume my life. CoD is no threat though, its entertaining for about 10 minutes.

    As a 13-28 year old, although admittedly not fat, but often drunk, I am offended :p I do not know what kind of creature plays that game though...

  9. Oh my my....! This is soooo sad for the 360 gamers. M$oft abandon the console and it,s core gamers favoring Kinect. The gamers are starved for games M$oft!!! Take a page out of Sony's book and concentrate on games and not gimmicks, like kinect.

    kinect isnt a requirement for Minecraft on xbox, what are you talking about? do your research before you make *****ic assumptions.

    I don't like the idea of Minecraft on console - I enjoy it on PC, but going away from the PC gets rid of the casual feel to it.
    Although I'm happy they are taking money away from the big publishers... :')

    Hardly taking money away from publishers if they're paying Microsoft to have it on the 360.

    I believe he was referring more to activision, EA, ubisoft, etc.

    If only they could join PC players... There is no comparison to minecraft for PC vs Xbox. It'd be like comparing Xbox Minecraft to iOS Minecraft.

    I can say that it is significantly slower in the creation/deletion progress...and the map is limited...but they couldnta done a much better job.

    Sorry, I worded that badly - as the other guy said, I was referring to the fact that people make the choice of an indie game over a AAA game.

    Microsoft isn't EA. It doesn't product run of the mill games every year so I highly doubt money is being taken away from Microsoft over Minecraft. Microsoft Gaming Studios has been pretty quiet as of recent because they are preparing Halo 4.

    Read that again - I was quoting someone else's response to me. I was referring to publishers like Activison (since we are on the topic of COD), as people may have chosen to buy Minecraft instead of MW3. I know I have to make choices like that every year.
