    Thats a kind way of saying they are just really lazy . With all the money he made from minecraft youd think 3-4 years of beta still isnt enough to milk it more .

    From wikipedia:

    Minecraft is a sandbox indie game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. It was publicly released for the PC on May 17, 2009, as a developmental alpha version and, after gradual updates, was published as a full release version on November 18, 2011

    wow, you're quoting from WIKIPDEIA. You do realise anyone can go in and change it, right? I'm dubious that you do.

    And to point it out to you, i'll use your own, "source" about what the defenition of Beta is in regards to computer programs.

    Computing[edit]

    In computing, the term "beta" is used as (usually) the last release in the software release life cycle. It is sometimes referred to as 0.x in version numbers or x.x by where x represents a number.

    Minecraft 1.7.2? Oh my why that's a Beta!

    0.1.7.2 would be beta, 1.7.2 is post-release. Anything larger than 1.0 is generally post-release, anything lower than 1.0 is generally beta. That isn't always the case of course, but it generally holds true. There is nothing stopping a developer from releasing content after a game is released, hence why 1.X can keep getting higher.

    What you're refering to is a beta test. Minecraft just happened to have an open beta test.

    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/beta+test

    There ya go.

    As well as that, the 1.x.x was added as the adventure update.

    http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Timel...ents#January_2 Also, here's the Minecraft timeline, you'll notice that it still says BETA long after the wikipedia article says it was "released".

    Always love it when people use the, "it's not right because it's wikipedia and anyone can edit the information so it is wrong" argument.

    They've already explained how the Beta is going to work, it's not going to be like Minecraft.

    '
    You've never been to college have you? That's the argument those damn professors use to explain why you can't use Wikipedia in a research essay, why don't they understand that the internet is always right regardless of who says what?!

    Also, you're technically right, seeing as Minecraft had an Alpha Test where Starbound did not, just a number of developer videos showing how progress was coming along, which is admittedly a huge difference from allowing random yahoos run around and break everything.

    As well as this, oh hey, here's the Minecraft timeline from Gamepedia, about as trustworthy as Wikipedia, http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Timel...ents#January_2

    At no point does it say full release, just resetting of the number after it was passed on to jeb.
