Arqade is a question and answer site for passionate videogamers on all platforms. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'd like to try out the premium version of Minecraft on a friend's recommendation, but I might lose interest quickly.

Can I sell my account later on if I lose interest? Or give my user details away?

Of course - this isn't an MMORPG, there's nothing really tied to your account (other than your avatar), so there's no reason to prevent people selling accounts..

However, for only $13, most people would rather choose their own username, so good luck to you finding a buyer.

Thanks. If I don't like it and the price goes up in beta, I'll just sell it for what I paid or less. –  pate Oct 6 '10 at 16:00
I'd be surprised if Notch was unwilling to change one's username if requested. –  ceejayoz Oct 6 '10 at 17:23

Technically, if you read the terms of use for Minecraft, doing this is illegal. Heck, redistributing anyone's copyrighted property for your own purposes is illegal.

Read closely. Account Login Details != Game Licence. –  pate Apr 4 at 10:12
