My inbox last night: a barrage of emails. Minecraft is selling at almost $290 on the Xbox One store! What gives?
Yep. Minecraft is good. I don't know if it's $289.95 good.
Obviously it's a mistake. In fact, if you try to click on Minecraft on Xbox One's online store right now, you get this:
Strange. It's definitely not an issue with the website, since every other game on the store, including upcoming games, is working fine.
Eurogamer reported the same issue happening in the UK, and confirmed it was a mistake with Microsoft. The game is coming out today at some point in the store, and the price will be as normal apparently. We're confirming with Microsoft locally what that price will be for Australians. We'll update as soon as we hear back.
