    Technically Mojang hasn't gone exclusively to microsoft as the Minecraft PE is on Apple (a BIG competitor of Microsoft) products E.G. Ipod Iphone Ipad (I think) and it is playable on a mac pc as well. But most things on Playstation were ported from the 360 (COD included) and not all things turned out good (Black Ops had a lot of glitches in it and still does).

    So maybe it is best to be on only 1 console. It is on computer anyway and most people have one and i am certain all of you posting have one (how elsee would you post?)

    (I know Apple didn't make the Playstation)

    I rest my case.
    Many games are built for Xbox for its ore familiar and easy to understand architecture and because of the more reachable limitations of the console, such as, the amount of memory that fits on a disc. When going ,multi-platform the XBOX is the way most developers go because it has the most painless ability to port to both PS3 and PC simple as that. Bugs and glitches are caused due to poor porting. You can't justify reason not to have a game on a console because it may be glitchy, and last time I checked Minecraft was loads simpler a game than many full titles that are released on consoles annually. Glitches would be much easier to fix for this than those in many cases.

    Also on another note:
    Chances of very many mod support to be added to this exclusive Minecraft release I feel are low due to past releases of products for the Microsoft owned console, that were lacking mod capabilities that other releases were complimented with. Standard texture packs sound possible, but probably any above a set resolution.

    Go Xbox. I think Mojang made a good deal on doing the game exclusively for Xbox.

    Too lazy to parse the rest of the pages for comments like this. Let me make this clear to everyone who doesn't know how to think.

    EXCLUSIVITY IS BAD IN ALL OF ITS FORMS!
    Companies buying out rights to a game is never healthy for the growth of a franchise. Games held down to one console/platform limit their relevance and cultural impact in so many ways. While there are definitely drawbacks/obstacles that present themselves while developing for certain platforms, people being paid not to develop for a certain platform is what I consider much worse and unhealthy then choosing for legitimate reasons not to develop on a certain platform. Sure it benefits the companies greatly, and, in times where the game may not be produced otherwise, it is good, but cross platform mutuality should always be the main goal of this industry. Often things like this is what divides a community or communities, and while I acknowledge that many gamers do not participate in gaming communities the same ways others do, I still consider it a misguided choice to allow things like this to happen.

    ON ANOTHER NOTE
    This whole exclusive title being given to the Minecraft port to XBOX 360 seems preposterous, seeing as, as it has been since day one, the game has and is being developed mainly for PCs running Linux, Mac OS and Windows a like, not to mention it has already rolled into the mobile gaming scene on both Android OS and iOS. Console marketing needs to get their heads out of their asses and realize that they are not considered the only form of legitimate gaming media. All Microsoft has really done is pay for a console in specific not to be able to have the game, about half of the main stream gaming products already had it. While what Microsoft did may turn out to be a good business choice, I still don't agree with it as a mutually beneficial choice for gamers.

    Not be an elitist or anything, but he PC will ALWAYS do it better. No mod support = no fun.

    Nice texture pack, I like how it looks cel-shaded
    What's it called?

    I actually have a mod that makes the game cel-shaded. The texture pack I am using with it is "The Great Sea", which is based off Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker.

    GLSL Shaders Mod: Here

    *The original creator hasn't updated it, but the post i linked to is an updated version done by someone else. Also you will have to find the shaders yourself, but you should be able to take them from the 1.5 version.
