Minecraft for Apple TV will also come with seven pieces of DLC, including Holiday 2015, Town Folk, and City Folk skin packs, along with other add-ons "for a limited time." Otherwise, the game is similar to every other version of Minecraft, tasking users with venturing into a randomly generated world and customizing it to their liking.

$20 is a bit steep. I was hoping for $10 at launch...

Isn't that what it costs on all platforms?

PvP was the main reason that most people even played Minecraft in the first place.


ROFL.. CO-OP servers have always outnumbered PVP servers by more than 10 to 1.

I'm guessing the aTV version matches the console one.


Nope. It looks like it is the same as the Win10 version which is the PE (iOS/Android) version at its core.

I never understood the appeal of this game? Ugly graphics that belong in the 80's and boring gameplay. Am I missing something?


Yea, it's called an imagination. ;) The core of Minecraft is a sandbox game. YOU bring the story.

We used to suffer through such horrific graphics because the GPUs sucked. Now that it is intentional it is neither retro or schick. It's embarrassing.


Yea, that's why Lego bricks get less and less popular every year... not.

Gameplay and creative flexibility beat pretty graphics, especially when the limited graphics allowed the Java version to run on almost any computer more than 5 years ago and yet still support a possible world size that is 7 times the area of the planet. Find any other game that lets you explore in any direction for 30 Million meters.

My kids absolutely love minecraft, been playing for years and watching lets-play videos for almost as long. Amazing game and $20 is what it costs on desktop so the price is fine.

Only downside is the lack of mods, but then vanilla minecraft is fine too and you can make a lot of neat stuff without mods.

I wonder how you can use the remote to move around and craft..
