Minecraft: Pi Edition Arriving for the Raspberry Pi, Completely Free to Play
Have a Raspberry Pi? Love Minecraft? If so, you are going to be happy to know that Minecraft: Pi Edition is now available for free from pi.minecraft.net. Why is it free for Pi when elsewhere it is paid? Mojang says they see it as a way of getting more folks interested in the hobbyist/programming board.
Although you have probably heard of the Raspberry Pi before – especially if you frequent our site – we will refresh your memory: the Raspberry Pi is an awesome credit-card sized PC that easily hooks up to your PC and is pretty open for programming, modding and anything you want to through at it.
Sure with its low-end processor and paltry amount of RAM (256MB for older versions, 512MB for model B) it isn’t a super-device, but it also generally comes in at under $40 so it is really pretty hard to complain. Check out the video below to get a better idea of what this “programming friendly” version of Minecraft is all about.
