Many gamers who purchased the XBOX 360 version of the popular block-crafting game Minecraft are eligible for a full refund claims Microsoft.
What’s this? Microsoft is giving money away, what??
A Microsoft spokesperson was quoted as saying, “We updated our pre-sale notification to inform customers that an HD screen is required for the split-screen multiplayer feature on Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. If a player does not have an HD screen and purchased this game prior to the notification update, they are eligible for a full refund through customer support.” The game sells for 1600 Microsoft Points, or $20.
No no no, you see the unfortunate fools still living in the stone age all still have standard definition televisions. These jerks are then not able to play split screen multiplayer because their screens are too suck to handle all of the awesome that is the dual-screen Minecraft hi def visual gangbang. Of course you might be thinking that I am coming off a bit biased here, but I assure you it is a clever ploy to shame myself into evicting the 80 pound rounded glass picture box from my entertainment center. I am one of these people with a shit TV. It sucks, I know.
Sadly I will not be receiving a refund. My girlfriend curbed any chances of me even making any online purchases for my 360 when she red-ringed it playing halo not two days after I voided the warranty with a case-mod.
