Minecraft is a popular sandbox video game with over 90 million active players worldwide. It has revolutionized the entire gaming industry by providing players with a unique platform where they can create virtually anything. Minecraft has become the best-selling game ever. In the last 11 years, more than fifteen editions of Minecraft have been released for different gaming platforms, reflecting the widespread popularity of the game.

Some of the Minecraft editions have gained so much popularity in the last few years including Minecraft Pocket Edition, Console Edition, and Raspberry Pi Edition, but Minecraft Java Edition and Minecraft Bedrock Edition (Windows 10 Edition) are the main focus of the players. Mojang has made a lot of modifications in all the versions of Minecraft, and tried to bridge the gap between these versions, especially Minecraft Java Edition and Bedrock edition.

There are some great Minecraft Resources that are freely available such as the Team Visionary – Minecraft resource packs

Some of the features in the Java Edition and the Bedrock Edition are more prominent than other editions. Game developers are constantly improving and modifying both editions to make them more attractive for players around the world. The game is on track to succeed with at least a dozen editions under its portfolio, but both Java and Bedrock editions have gained so much popularity.

The decision to choose one becomes very difficult with so many options available. Especially if you want to play Minecraft on your PC, you might be wondering whether you should choose Minecraft Java Edition or Bedrock Edition.

Many different versions of Minecraft are available for different platforms, confusing new players who are interested in joining the world’s largest gaming community.

1. Minecraft Java Edition

2.  Bedrock Edition,

You might be wondering whether you should choose Java Edition or Bedrock Edition.

Why there are two editions for PC?

Originally Minecraft was programmed in Java, and it can be played on any operating system that supports the Java language. Minecraft Java Edition can be played on most famous operating systems including Windows, Linux and Mac. Java language is not only supported by most of the operating systems but also supports the cross-play feature for Java-based platforms, which attracts the players towards the Java edition.

On the other side, mobile devices such as smartphones, iPads, and tablets don’t support Java language. The Minecraft developers have created a new version for these smart devices known as Pocket Edition or PE.  The developers also created the different versions for different platforms including, Xbox, PlayStation, and Windows mobile.
