Minecraft to go retail on 360

Written by David Stellmack

Will arrive on April 30th in North America

After the most successful sales run in Xbox Live Arcade history, Microsoft is bringing the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft to retail. The retail version will arrive in North America on April 30th and set those back that have yet to purchase it $20.

The disc-based retail version of Minecraft will contain he 9th update version of the software, as well as all of the content that has been released for it up to this point. Going forward, users with an Internet connection will receive the same ongoing updates and content as those who purchased the digital version, which is actually really good news.

The retail version is also headed to release on the Xbox 360 in Australia, Hong Kong, India, New Zealand, Singapore, and Taiwan at some point in June. We hear that it will also be headed to Europe at some point, but it isn’t clear when. What a way for Microsoft to end its console exclusive release on Minecraft with a retail offering.
