Why would it be free?

I believe it's going to be $7.

WOOHOO I was sitting there like 40-minutes try'na make the downloads of the demo/beta work but NONE of them work
Theres nothing like being in Teh Sandbox (Afghan') with your SA80 next to you hoggin' up the Computers at the CompCafe playing Minecraft.. Now I can do it out in teh field. THIS IS what the SolarPoweredMonkey is for. Not charging a friggin iPod!!

Hell I'd be ballzy enough to buy it and stick it on a download site/email it to people.. Rooted Phone FTW..
So glad I decided to go with teh Play now. Although.. I saw the Video months before I got the Play (Even though it was PINGCHAT! & iPlayer that made me give my Dad the Wildfire and get this!)

Hell ANYONE running a Rooted Play could put it up ASLONG as they dont need login or have a licence file.. because then people will be trying to hack that to be free too!

There ARE free launchers of MC out there anyhow.. So maybe someone will make an aftermarket launcher thats free based off the paid one? just as with Windows?
I run it on Linux normally (On teh Toshiba laptop) and Windows from USBstick normally (With "PocketLauncher" etc)

Im guessing they will charge you to buy the app unlike the PC business model where you just buy a premium account.

I wouldnt be too happy about paying for the game again. If its just classic mode without multiplayer then I will give it a pass. if it does have multiplayer then I may change my mind

Guys, if you want more good games on the Play, pirating the biggest game to come to it isn't going to help. Just means we'll get less games that will support it. Just put down a few bucks and show your support.

As far as I know, the game will evolve just like the PC version had over the years.
