Minecraft [PC] $23

Minecraft PC download $22.94

Deal seems to be for 7/28 only.

https://www.gamesdeal.com/game-de...DM0728deal

Current price at the official Minecraft store is $26.95 so not the best discount (14%) but the PC version almost never used to go on sale. Console version deals pop up all the time.

Web site does not seem to display correctly on mobile phones. I had to select the chrome web browser option to Request Desktop Site.

This game used to be free and only $10 for Window 10 few months ago. This is freaking rip-off. That's what happen when Microsoft bought any company. Same story like Nokia might happen again.
Thank OP & TU for the deal thou. I just hate the way Microsoft doing business.

Have you ever seen it cheaper? The one time I did, the key ended up becoming invalid and I got a refund.

This game has always avoided discounts. The only one that even comes to mind was the 2 for 1 promo that was held at some point early on. MS can't take any credit for it on this one, lol.

I have not tracked the prices, but given the 2-4% additional fees to buy from this shady site, possible info exposure/cc theft, I would prefer to pay the $3 more from the official site?

To those mentioning Windows 10 edition that is much cheaper and comes for free when you buy the PC version. If you like to play mods or modded worlds then I think you need the full one.

Anyone know if the PC edition restricts you to one running copy? Can I run a copy on both of my PCs to play with a friend or do I need 2 copies (legal or not..)

Yeah I think windows store version is limited although I believe they are aiming to have parity with the full version at some point. Buying the normal/full version also gave you access to the windows store version (at least in the past).

I tested this on both the PC edition and the Windows 10 edition.

For the PC edition, if you are offline, you can easily use multiple local copies running the same account over LAN. There is a process for this you can google.

The windows 10 edition also allows one license over multiple PC LAN connections. One can be signed in with the xbox live account, and the other cannot. If the second user attempts to sign in, it will attempt to boot the other player from Xbox Live. An Xbox gold account is not needed for LAN play.

So basically, you only need one license to play over a LAN, as long as you don't mind no achievements and cloned names.

This version of the game - PC/Java edition almost never changes in price. It's been $26.95 through their official store and any other locations that resell.

I think they might have dropped the price once or twice on their official site over the last 5 years? They also sold gift cards in store for a short period of time and it was either priced lower or I just had a 5% discount for having a Target card but that's the only time I personally saw a cheaper price.

There is a Windows 10 Edition which is a complete re-write of the game and mods for the Java edition are NOT compatible. The Windows 10 edition is supposed to if not already going to be the same / cross compatible with the mobile edition / xbox editions. That was free originally or free with an existing java edition of Minecraft. It's usually around $10 now if bought separately.

It was $27 long before Microsoft bought it dumbass, how about checking your facts before posting lies if you don't know what you're talking about.
