I don't understand why anyone would buy Minecraft on a console... It's just much more limited, and instead of mods, you have paid DLC.


Four player splitscreen co-op.


You can do split screen co-op with Minecraft PC.
Remember, the PC version allows modding.

So the game is still more limited.

No one wants to go through the hassle of setting up Joypad and WinSplit, with the consequent game eating the resources of the computer, when you can simply set up a server to play online. On console, just pressing Start grants you the joy of splitscreen up to four player.

 

And maybe I'm mistaken, but Mac users get left out of the equation.

 

So, yeah, four player splitscreen is a thing worth mentioning from console version.

No, the only thing worth mentioning is the convenience, the functionality is indeed present on the PC.

Run Bootcamp, load up Windows 7, eat cake.

The Mac isn't known for it's gaming capabilities, it shouldn't be what a consumer buys into the platform for.

It doesn't matter in the case of Minecraft. Like if it is on mobile. Consumers will buy it regardless of platform.

 

Having to boot a different OS so for then to mod the game in order to add a not-official splitscreen at the expense of the system's resources seems indeed like a hassle. But hey, more power to PC gamers.

Everyone has. It's not like a console player is forbbiden to go and use his PC to play.
