View author's profile

The proceeds of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’s latest skins pack will go to charity.

Launching on October 26th, the Halloween Pack adds 55 skins to the game, all of which come with a spooky twist and some of which are games-related. 

Amongst the pack are skins submitted by the likes of Tequila Works, Army of Trolls, Climax, Rare, The Behemoth, Toylogic and Twisted Pixel.

Every penny (or MSP) spent on the packs will go to charities including Macmillan Cancer Support, Child’s Play, SANDS Lothians and Block by Block.

Classy and amazingly successful? Good work chaps.

What if you would be one of the victims of a cancer and someone said to you: "I don't care about you. I could do something good for your cause and I would get something back, but I rather not, because I want them to bee, rather than you getting a penny to help out with your sickness."

IMO, I think this is a great thing to do.

@3 They're not free. I'd pay more than 160 MSP for charity, but since you're suck an asshole, I think 160 will do. Thanks for the donation, dickwad.

Personally I like the skins packs. Considering you can have any skin at all on PC, 160 MSP is fair play in my eyes for a pack of decent skins.

Though I don't play in third person or multiplayer (which I really should, I'm wasting $ on my Live account), this is a great gesture that I'll definitely support.

Charity or not, I still would have bought these skins but since it is for a good cause, can't go wrong at all.

@35: That cracked me up. But seriously, no one should complain the price: it is your choice whether or not you're gonna buy it. It hasn't been the patients' choice to obtain cancer though. Not often you get something worthwhile back for bestowing money to a good cause.

While I agree that people shouldn't complain about something that is for a good cause, your argument of "don't like it, don't buy it" isn't valid. The people that do have a problem with are obviously upset that it cost something and don't want to buy it. Telling them "don't like it don't buy it" doesn't make sense. I agree with your stance on the issue but your particular argument is flawed. That phrase is almost always used to exempt something from criticism mostly because the person is butthurt. Also people always add "simple as that" to the end of the phrase. It shows that there's no thought put into it and that the phrase is being parroted.
