Forums - Gaming Discussion - Ps4 Minecraft bundle

I see France has a Minecraft bundle selling pretty well. Why would Microsoft do a bundle on the ps4?

Because of business. They make just as much money selling software than they do selling Hardware.. so why not.



They're going third party! Hueheuheuheuheu

For the exact same reason they didn't stop non Xbox versions being sold... They make money off MC software. And they'll make money off that bundle

I just thought they'd not want to assist Sony in becoming even  More dominant in Europe.

Fascinating. Microsoft has already abandoned Japan, maybe they are skipping out on Europe too.

They won't abandon Europe. Their presence is already very limited.  Fifa 18 on ps4 in Europe has outsold the xb1 by around 4.5:1 That's just a crazy stat.

Microsoft isn't run by little kids, there one of the most richest and successful companies in history. They know how to make money and selling hardware isn't the gold mine everyone is lead to believe.

I mean, the only chance Microsoft has in mainland Europe is if Sony fucks up bad, which looks unlikely. So they might as well just gain off PS4 success. They should also have this bundle in countries like Germany and Spain, if you ask me.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

They couldn't stop non Xbox versions from being sold. Those licenses were already signed by Mojang before Microsoft bought them. Unless those licenses run out and MS chose not to renew them.

This bundle however, I don't imagine was part of an agreement signed years ago, so this must be Microsoft's decision.
