    I can't agree with this. If Minecraft was put on the Steam store, then Mojang/Microsoft would lose money, since Steam takes a sizable portion of the profit games make on their store. You can just launch Minecraft through the Minecraft launcher, or if you wish, you can launch Minecraft through Steam via "Add a Non-Steam Game."

    I do kinda like this idea, mainly because this could potentially open up the game to a larger fanbase. And could help with how dumb it is these days to make a proper server for cross region play

    Just add it to Steam as a Non-Steam Product

    Pros: Opening to a larger fan base, Steam Workshop Modding API, potentially easier server setup, in-game community interaction, playtime tracking, friends list, potential trading cards, Steam achievements alongside in-game ones/advancements,...

    Cons: Valve claiming portion of the sales/profits (not like Amazon, iTunes and Google Play don't do the same...), removal/editing of "Not on Steam!" splash.

    I say Microsoft should go for it, with all the benefits to the community and whatnot. :)

    But why does this need to be a thing? What's wrong with the launcher that we already have?

    I'd rather not, as it would yeet quite a bit of profit from mojang and might encourage them to add dlc like they did with bedrock. I think it's fine as is...

    There should be a version of Minecraft available on Steam, but not the Java Edition, I would much rather have them port the Bedrock Edition to Steam since then they could release it on Mac and Linux.

    I'd also be down if they ported the Legacy Console Edition to Steam so that way we could look back on what Minecraft used to be.

    is good idea why in argentina

    because it is better to hack it than to buy it on the official website because the blue dollar costs a lot

    I doubt they would put it on steam, mainly because the game is popular and successful enough that putting it on steam will only make them less money because Valve gets a portion of the money a game makes, so it would be losing money to put it on steam. Secondly, if they were going to put Minecraft on steam, which version would they pick. While Java edition is the primary version for most players on PC, Bedrock edition is Officially the primary version of the game and is the most played version. That's probably why Minecraft is on Game pass for Xbox but not for PC.

    I'd love to see Minecraft on Steam too. It would get a bunch of new Minecrafters.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of titles by Xbox Game Studios are on Steam so I doubt Minecraft should be any different.
