In an explosion of streamers and cheers, the Mojang team officially launched Minecraft
1.0 as a final(ish
) product today from the stage of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, kicking off this weekend's "MineCon
" convention. Surprising absolutely no one, the servers selling the game
have been crashing from server loads intermittently. Oops!
Just as soon as they're more stable, the launch version of Minecraft
can be purchased on PC and Mac for $26.95. Maybe for now you could spend some time with that mobile version
of the world builder? Or just keep refreshing. That's probably a better idea.
