Which Minecraft should I buy? – this is the most important question to consider before purchasing. And I’m glad you’re asking it.
Otherwise, you’re just gonna regret it like other Singaporean players.
I’ve seen people answering this question in one word.
In my opinion, there’s not a single word answer. If you want to buy a great Minecraft version, you have to know about the different versions. Here we go!
What Are the Different Versions of Minecraft?
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.
To get an in-depth look at the versions, you may check out the Minecraft Gamepedia site. Yes, there are versions inside versions. Seems weird, right?
Anyway, here are the different versions of Minecraft:
- Bedrock Edition
- Java Edition
- Legacy Console Edition
- Education Edition
- Pi Edition
- Minecraft Earth
- Minecraft Dungeons
- Minecraft Launcher
- New Nintendo 3DS Edition
What is the Most Used Version of Minecraft?
Instead of getting into details, I would like to try to shortcut.
What’s the point of talking about useless versions when we can consider the best ones?
Okay, these are the versions that you may want to buy if you are based in Singapore.
Minecraft for Windows 10 Edition
Almost everyone is using Windows 10 right now. Gone were the days when people used Windows 7 or Vista.
Back then, the original Minecraft was viewed as a better alternative to the Windows 10 Minecraft edition. Today, the Minecraft windows Update 1.0 has made the version come closer to the original one.
Pros and Cons of Minecraft Windows 10 Edition
|Touchscreen support||Couldn’t use 3rd party servers, mods, textures, and resources|
|Xbox Live gaming available||Only for Windows|
|Simple parental control||Multiplayer gaming is invite-only!|
|Good performance and graphics|
|Interacts well with the Pocket Edition|
Minecraft PC Edition - Java Version
Here comes a more flexible version of the Minecraft, which is often called as the Java version.
If you prefer to play right from your desktop, nothing could be better than the Minecraft PC edition as it’s more of open-sourced.
If you take a close look, you will realize that the Singapore Minecraft PC edition has a huge following. All the mods, mini-games, and building up of servers – everything revolves around it.

Minecraft Pocket Edition
As the name suggests, it’s made for our small little devices called mobile phone.
It doesn’t matter whether you got an Android, iOS, or Windows Phone, as long as you’ve this version and you have a mobile phone – you’re good to go!
Pros and Cons of Minecraft Pocket Edition
|Xbox Live Log-in||3rd party resources, servers, mods, and textures are not available|

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.
