Thread Details

I did not see this posted and I apologize if I set off deal alerts that I didn't mean to. I put it in the freebie section, not hot deals to help prevent this.

I saw this while browsing the microsoft win 10 store today. If you already own a PC copy of Minecraft you can go to mojang.com [mojang.com] and login to get your free download code. A Win10 button will appear next to Minecraft in your My Games section.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

Damn, deal alert went off and I got excited. This has actually been around a while, presumably since Win 10 beta release hit the app store.

It worked, cool. I haven't played minecraft in years, but I figured I'd try it for the nostalgia. I had to first convert my 2010 minecraft.net account to a Mojang account, but then I was able to log in and do it.

Been a while for me as well. Password recovery doesn't seem to be working for me though on the minecraft website.

the good thing about this version is that you can play on the same world as someone using the PE version. my kids play on their ipads and I jump on this one and join them.

...I just wish they would make a flavor of the regular PC version on C++ Java is a stinkin' pig. Yeah I know the whole mod business, but to me, UX > Mods and you shouldn't have to spend a wad of cash just to get a good frame rate on an 8-bit looking game that has flavors that can run well on cheap phones and tablets
