Usually we talk PC version of Minecraft, but the MCPE should not be ignored. Its many levels of awesome, and only getting better ever since Notch sold it for two billion US dollars last year to Microsoft. Minecraft today is valued at over 4 billion. Notch should have updated more, those updates raise the companies value.
Minecraft Pocket Edition just updated today, June 12, 2016 and its a cool one. We now have Realms, so you can play anywhere, anytime. This is a cool feature and I'm sure to use it with my son. Also...hey, bow ties on zombies! How cool is that? The bad part about that is that you have to pay. The free version lasts only 30 days, then you lose your realm.
