Microsoft offering Minecraft refunds

Microsoft has decided to tackle the Minecraft split-screen cries by offering refunds to those with no HD screens.

Minecraft became available on Xbox Live Arcade over a week ago, but didn’t support split-screen play on non-HD screens. Since there was no warning in the product’s description telling players as much, people were understandably a little miffed.

Now though, the listing carries the appropriate information and Microsoft will be offering refunds.

“We updated our pre-sale notification to inform customers that an HD screen is required for the split-screen multiplayer feature on Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition,” a company spokesperson has told Kotaku.

“If a player does not have an HD screen and purchased this game prior to the notification update, they are eligible for a full refund through customer support.”

Upon launch, the indie hit broke XBLA’s day-one records and sold over one million copies in its first week.
