The game was originally released on May 17th 2009 on Microsoft Windows as a development alpha version but has since been ported to OSX, iOS, AndroidXbox 360, Xbox One, the PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation 4.

The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Gameplay in its commercial release has three principal modes: survival, which requires players to acquire resources and maintain their health and hunger; and creative, where players have an unlimited supply of resources, the ability to fly, and no health or hunger.

@ mr puggsly: The game sold better when
MS wasn't the owner, yet the sales are
still better on PS4. Another reason MS
want crossplay on PS4 and a nice way to
throw away $ 2.5 billion.

Hmm... wonder why the Japan sales are so
low compared to Vita and Wii U...
Although the legs should close the gap
slightly!
