Let’s start this article by saying one thing: it is always better to buy video games and, in general, all things, instead of having them for free.
In this case we have two versions of Minecraft: the SP; then the launcher downloadable from the internet completely free of charge and the premium, the paid version released by Mojang (Specifications) at the modest price of about twenty euros.
Leaving aside the legality factor; which can only be obtained by buying the Premium version of the game: what are the substantial differences between the two?
