Minecraft for Xbox One Launching this Friday

It has been over a year since Minecraft was announced for the Xbox One but we have finally gotten a firm release date. The game was believed to come out sometime in August but odds are that there were some setbacks in development but now fans of the game will be able to download it this Friday and build on worlds that are up to 36 times larger than those on the Xbox 360.


The game will retail for $20 and will be available digitally first while a disk version will be available later in the year. What comes as a surprise is that Mojang and Microsoft  have a special offer for those who already own the Xbox 360 version of the game, they will be able to get the Xbox One version for just $5. All of the downloadable content that players have purchased on the Xbox 360 Edition will be available free to re-download on the Xbox One.

Hello internet I'm Daniel. I've always had a passion for gadgets and gizmos. My life took a turn for the best when I bought the First Generation iPod Nano the day Apple released it. I was amazed at how technology was becoming part of our daily lives and how fast new products were being developed. Since then I have grown to love technology related products, how they work, and how these products can be improved. I love providing my thoughts on companies latest products so consumers can make up their mind on whether or not they want to spend their money on them.
