Minecraft Price Change For Certain Regions

Distributing games around the world has become super simple with just a server. Pricing a game for sale around the world however, is not. Minecraft, the wildly popular indie game where you have a world to build what you want, is having its price point altered in certain regions to align with the US dollar. According to Mojang, the changes are being made “in the spirit of currency exchange”. This only affects the PC version of the game, and not the console or Pocket Editions.

Minecraft Pricing 2016

The new price will take effect on May 23 so there is still some time to grab the game if you don’t have it already. Additionally, Minecraft will now be sold in Japan, Korea and Brazil.
