First, Minecraft is being used for classes in schools, and now, Minecraft is being used to plan buildings for construction work. Minecraft is taking over real life! D:

I'm an architect and urban planner, and play Minecraft a lot.

Once I showed the people that work with me in the office this game, they said "Bleh, what a cubic game. You're sick". Then I showed them the stunning buildings the players have made in the creative servers. One of them just jawdropped.

I think the architects still have lots of things to learn from MC players. ;D

What I want to know is, will I have to pay for another account for the XBLA version of Minecraft or will it be free??? Or even maybe a system that syncs the two accounts together??? i.e. if I have a computer account, will it still be good if my XBL account is synced to the same internet source?

I think that you won't need a separate account. I read somewhere, possibly on the wiki, that people who purchased the game while it was still in beta will get %25 off of the Xbox version. Idk if this is true or not, but I'm guessing that it will still use the same account as the PC game. Either way you will have to pay for the Xbox version, because Microsoft does charge for people to put games on the Arcade. Another reason is because they outsourced the port to 4J Studios, they need to be compensated too. I think overall its 1200 Microsoft points, so the people who purchased the PC version in beta form will pay 800 for it.

Why do they never interview Jeb? He does all the work now, Notch abandoned the game.

I think they interviewed Jeb 2 or 3 times, but Notch is more important since he started minecraft and is the owner of Mojang

I know an architect on the server I play, (Shiftmaster, as he is known by his IGN) and he uses his private island to briefly schematic his next project.

While I havn't looked into it because I'm not planning on buying the XBLA version, I would imagine it will use your XBL account, just like every other game on Live.

knowing that microsoft wants to throw every single unit of currency in existence into their hoarding pile, you'll probably have to pay for the Xbox copy.
