Not really. Minecraft was in Alpha for a long time, but was only officially released at the tail end of last year.

@Clockpunk: I would be willing to bet that Journey would sell more on 360 than it did on PS3. As to 0x10c, I think consoles won't really be part of the process. It sounds far too ambitious, and since hacking and programming actually plays a part I don't really see this one carrying across. Not to mention the subscription problems.

Daughter Number One played Minecraft for practically 2 days solid this week, she's really taken to it.

I guess they will hold back to see how well it does, it was a long time after Minecraft came out on PC before it got a 360 release.

Well deserved - seeing as how we 360 owner don't appreciate artistic or creative games, according to thatgamecompany... ;)

I don't know why it is so addictive, but I'm currently hunting slimes in anticipation of the piston update!

Wonder if Microsoft will be lining up another exclusive contract to port of Notch's upcoming 0x10 (or whatever it is called)...

Agreed. Terrible headline. Was it pinched from Fox News?

Could you change Call of Duty to Black Ops please?
