Xbox & Switch editions also on sale.

Seems the sale might be going till somewhere around 5/23-24. Minecraft sale page says merch is on sale till 5/24 but doesn't give a specific date for the game. Xbox and Win10 editions end date is around 5/23.

What's the difference between the PC(Java) and Windows 10 version?

Java Version: mod support, no marketplace (i.e. no in app purchases), can self host server for free
Java edition is the one sold on minecraft.net and runs on PC/MAC/Linux. AFAIK Java edition players can only play with other Java players.


Win 10: Better optimized/better performance, cross play with xbox/switch/mobile versions​, must pay to host server.
Windows 10, xbox, switch, mobile all have their own compatible editions (called Bedrock edition). You have to purchase these individually for the platform you want to use, but they can play with each other. So someone with Win 10 can play online with someone with Xbox, etc.


Java Version no longer comes with free Win10 version, they must be purchased separately.

There are much cheaper places to get a legit key for Windows 10 version of Bedrock Edition. A quick search for "Minecraft Bedrock Edition Windows 10 Key" will turn up plenty. Of course be careful of where you purchase. It's for a key you use in the Microsoft Store, and then you download the game the same as if you had bought it from there.

Edited to remove link.

Key reseller sites like this will definitely be cheaper, but you're purchasing a grey market key that I wouldn't call "legit" in any way. It may work, but you are probably buying the win10 key that someone got free with their java purchase, or worse, keys from hacked accounts or stolen credit card numbers.

There is also an alpha level server available for download for the Win10/Console/PE editions.

Was going to mention this. I have been hosting a 24/7 server for a month or so.

🤷 ♂️ I bought some when my kids got into Minecraft some time ago, and nothing came of it. It's tied to a Microsoft store account, so once you put in your code to your account its activated. It's no different than buying codes for Steam, and the price is much slicker. By all means though, if it bothers you to do it, pay full price directly from the Microsoft Store.

This is a good price for the Java edition, b/c it never goes on sale. The win10 edition on the other hand... there are several sales where it can be had for $1.

Saw this, bought it because it was so cheap. Didn't notice until I got the purchase email that it also signed me up for a membership at 15 a month, plus the code I got was already redeemed.

I believe the windows 10 version isn't as up to date. At the least I think it can't have all the mods the Java version can. Think people say it's better optimized.
Only way to use vr mod is java version
