Please Don’t Pirate Minecraft

Stealing’s a crime right? Not according to thousands of kids who can afford an $800 tablet, but not a $7 game.

Hundreds of YouTubers (especially the Spanish?) and other Minecraft fans extract the $7 game for every update and every beta, then share the pirated game all over the internet. Most also use links, so they’re actually profiting from stealing, while the Minecraft PE developers who actually put the hard work in coding the game for hours a day earn nothing.


MobileMinecraft, a Brazilian MCPE news blog, is one major offender.

Is it okay to steal a phone, just because you can’t afford it? Times are tough? Times will be tough for the developers if they don’t get paid for their work, so do the right thing and buy the game. Games are expensive to develop- GTAV cost $265 million to produce.

Buying a product is the best way to encourage the game to improve and tell the developers you want more. Piracy’s already screwing over the gaming industry.

Where would Minecraft be if it was only pirated? The reason it’s spread from PC to your phones, tablets, and such is because people pay for it. If everyone pirated the game like these hundreds of players, there would be no Pocket Edition, no Console Edition, no Minecraft for Holo Lens, no Minecraft for Oculus.

If you can’t afford something, don’t buy it. Wait. Earn some money.

Heck, it’s only $7. That’s super cheap for a game with no actual ending.

YouTubers are the biggest offenders.

YouTubers are the biggest offenders.

Update: MobileMinecraft read the article, continuing to defend their distribution of illegal APKs.

We try to help everyone to everyone who may not have access to MCPE, but there are people like @imnofox who can’t see it.

They continue to believe piracy is totally fine, and I’m the bad person for not understanding that.

    Pero no les insulteis por favor. Ellos tienen sus razones, nosotros las nuestras. Nadie saldrá ganando ni perdiendo, sólo que ellos no tienen otra cosa que hacer que poner esto, que más les dará, si igualmente se pirateara, no sólo este juego, si no muchos otros. que ellos se preocupen por ellos, y nosotros nos preocuparemos por nosotro.
    But do not insult them please. They have his reasons, we ours. Nobody will go out winning not even losing, only that they do not have another thing that to do that to there put this, which more will give them, if equally it was pirated, not only this game, if not different many. That they worry for them, and we will worry for us.
