It all really depends on what you are after, while a lot of our readers are after Minecraft server hosting in Singapore on the business level, a lot of others are after simple gameplay. If we take a look at all the different versions of Minecraft for pure gameplay, there’s a big hierarchy.

Anyway, here are the different versions of Minecraft:

  • Bedrock Edition
  • Java Edition

  • Education Edition
  • Pi Edition
  • Minecraft Earth
  • Minecraft Dungeons
  • Minecraft Launcher

Okay, these are the versions that you may want to buy if you are based in Singapore.

Which Minecraft Should I Buy - Edition Choice

Apart from these 3 most common Minecraft editions, there are more!

But believe me, not all are as great as these are. As a matter of fact, I recommend the Java edition.

But still, it all comes down to how you want to play it and where you want to play it.

Keep a check on your device and gaming needs before buying any Minecraft version. If you do that, you will be able to grab something useful that would work long-term.

Otherwise, dissatisfaction will make you download a pirated version, and can lead to a hell of a lot of issues.
