Minecraft Announce Disk Release

Transient

For the first time since its launch back in 2009, we’re excited to announce the multi-record breaking phenomenon, Minecraft, will soon be available to buy in-store on disc across Ireland, exclusively for Xbox 360! This is just amazing news. I have it on arcade already, but I can only assume that everybody who doesn't have it already will want to pick this up. This game is viral.

From 28th June fans can experience the joy of Minecraft straight from disc and get a taste of Xbox Live Gold using an included free 48-hour subscription! Once connected to Xbox Live everyone can get the very latest Minecraft content from the ever-changing pixelated world, as well as experience the many other things Live has to offer such as taking favourite games online with friends or watching the latest TV and movies.

This disc version will provide the magic and experience already loved by millions worldwide and give newcomers the thrill to explore, build, and conquer alone, or play with friends via split-screen mode or over Xbox LIVE. Including a wealth of new features designed specifically for Xbox 360, Minecraft is a whole new way to make imagination a blocktastic reality!

We will keep you updated as more exciting news on this game release over the coming weeks. Let us hear your thoughts in the comments section below!
