Minecraft is huge. It’s dominating the online digital distribution market and has been for quite some time. With roughly 7 million sales for PC and 4 million sales for XBLA, one might wonder who hasn’t bought this game yet. Despite the recent success of digital distribution, recent statistics show that there is still a very large market for retail. With this in mind, Minecrafts’ foray into the retail world starts to make a lot of since.
Starting today in America, you can now pick up Minecraft at BestBuy, Target and Walmart. Don’t worry, pre existing Minecraft owners, the game being sold in retail is exactly the same and will cost you, exactly the same. You can pick up a copy for $26.95, which might make for a more tangible gift, come this holiday season.
