Not being a die-hard Minecraft fanatic, coming up with reasons to avoid buying the Pocket Edition hasn't been particularly challenging so far. If I'm going to play the game, I might as well have all of the newest updates, and since Minecraft has always been a time sink for me, mobile doesn't really make sense.
That said, when the asking price on Android drops from $6.99 down to the temporary sale price of $0.10, reasons such as these fly out the window and I'm left yearning to toss some spare change Mojang's way. This isn't the only game to see such a discount, but it's surely the one most will focus on.
