Minecraft: Pocket Edition gets a big update for E3, including Xbox cross-platform play, Realms servers, and more

Microsoft is the owner of Mojang, developer of the ultra-popular Minecraft sandbox building game. And at the E3 video game conference, they want everyone to know it. In between the usual slew of console exclusives and hype about the future, the company dedicated a little time to Minecraft exclusively. At least some of the new additions for Minecraft were released immediately for the Android version, most notably access to Realms servers and cross-platform play with the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Google Reportedly Plans To One-Up Apple's New Subscription Revenue Sharing With Even More Generous Terms

The company said it would change the subscription revenue split from 70/30 to a more generous 85/15 after those subscriptions have been active for a year or more. We were wondering if Google would follow suit, and it didn't take long. Recode is reporting that Google will be doing just that, but it's actually an even better deal for developers.

It's a free download on the Play Store, supported by in-app purchases for unlocking levels without getting high scores.
