    Although I think many people would like this to become a thing but, the fact Microsoft created minecoins in order to make more money, i think making minecraft slightly cheaper is the most they could do.

    I believe that it's okay for a game this good to be priced at just over $25. However, I do have a problem with having to buy Bedrock Edition for each platform I want to play it on (Windows, Android, Xbox, etc.). I would prefer if Bedrock Edition was free to download, but when you open it for the first time you have to enter your account. If you already owned Bedrock Edition, the actual game would be downloaded through the app and you could play for free. If you didn't already own Bedrock Edition, you would have to buy it and then you could play it on any platform you wanted.

    First of all, if you are going to build a PC just to play Minecraft. Dont. Please dont waste your time building a PC just to complain that a game that is well worth the money, and is cheap as possibly can be, is "too expensive." Want a cheaper version of Minecraft? Use your phone. Its only 9.99, literally an iPhone 4S which is like 50 bucks on eBay can run Minecraft. If you aren't happy with that, I dont think you should even step foot onto Minecraft grounds. Please have some common sense. I own Minecraft on pretty much all platforms, Im not complaining. Judging by this post, Im guessing the situation you talked about is you.

    I don’t know if I am correct but if Minecraft where to turn free it just wouldn’t be fair to all the people that actually bought it. Maybe i am wrong but I think it would be unfair because people had to pay for that with money and then Minecraft later is free? I don’t maybe I’m wrong for saying that but that what I think that’s why I think it shouldn’t be free.

    I wouldn’t be against a reduction in cost to $20 for the Java edition since it’s more expensive than almost any bedrock version and doesn’t have cross platform play, so it would help keep new players joining. I understand the higher cost though because the Java edition doesn’t have other ways for the developers to make money (and has the nice perks of an assurance that it will be available past any console cycle and all mods, maps, datapacks, and skins are free).

    Of course, making it free would not allow developers to continue updating the game, so I don’t like that idea.

    No one is buying a $1500 gaming setup just for one game, much less Minecraft or roblox. If you can afford to spend that much on a PC, then you can afford to pay $30 for a game

    You are very right, they probably make a lot of money from people buying Minecoins, so they should at least make it free for kids that don't have a credit card and their mom wont buy them Minecraft so they can get the game and for its 10 year anniversary. Minecraft is worth the money for its seemingly never ending possibilities of fun and creativity and its multiplayer is very fun just to sit back and play around with your friends in creative mode. But if they don't make it free then at least you can play a demo.

     

    Tip:In the demo for java edition you have a time limit of 100 min so if you want to keep playing then right at 99 min leave to the menu and hit reset demo world it then hit play demo world it will restart the timer, but you will lose all your progress!

    They'll have to introduce some premium stuff and this rarely goes well. So, no.

    If people are spending money on a massive gaming setup, $26.95 isn't that much more. My cousins played Minecraft on an old laptop with 20 fps for years. I had a similar situation. 

    Minecraft offers/offered a free timed demo. Offering a full product for free would put so many Mojang/ Microsoft employees out of a job. It's not just about the customers.

    27 bucks isn't a lot of money, if you work at mcdonalds you could get that much in one day, also, if your mostly playing minecraft, chances are there isn't going to be a $1000 dollar 2080 ti GPU in a pc, you would probably not spend more than 800 usd on a pc for minecraft. also, its actually really well priced for games now days

    The game isn't that expensive for what you get from it, try buying a $60 dollar game just to be dissapointed by in-app purchases

    Make Minecraft cheaper please! Nobody wants to pay 27 bucks for a block game. At least make servers free if you can't make the game cheaper. Microsoft has enough money. Stop being greedy.

    And ruin the already sort of declining game with MORE microtransactions? I'd rather a price cut to 9.99 (reasonable for most survival games) across ALL platforms, maybe a universal account where buy one, play on all thru redeem code distribution, I imagine something like this could be rolled out. But making the game free is daft.

    I agree to a curtain extent...
    Minecraft should cost £5 on ALL DEVICES AND VERSIONS because it is too expensive for pc edition but the developers of minecraft will have spent 1000's of hours perfecting minecraft, I know because I am a game developer also (I mostly use scratch, Html, and python, rasberry pi and java) and a good game takes time. And the more they make minecraft better the prouder they get and the price will rise as a result
