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.

trying to decide which version to get the kids. which version is better? does the Java version mean it's open to any/all the vulnerabilities of Java? do I have to buy two of them if my kids play together but on 2 separate PCs? does one version come with free mods/dlc or all extra content are microtransactions? thanks for the inputs guys.

Anyone has problem buying the java version ? I get error trying to buy 2nd copy for my son using a new account.
Yes, I bought the java version literally the day before it went on sale, after the sale I figured I'd buy another to play online together. Kept getting errors, multiple mojang accounts and both pc's and still no luck.

Luckily amazon finally seems to have the sale price and I'll just buy the code from there and redeem it on my child's account. Link for others who are having errors/might want to do the same - https://www.amazon.com/Minecraft-...B010KYDNDG

I was able to buy another copy using Edge browser and Discover card.
