    I've decided to buy minecraft after seeing how awesome it is and I wanted to know what you get after buying it. After you download it can I download it again because my pc crashes a lot and I have to restore everything. And do you get a physical copy of the game or do you just download it online? And finally is the game limited to Europe and north America or can you buy it anywhere, specifically Korea?

    After you've bought it, you can log into the website and download it again at any time as often as you like. You don't get a physical copy, but you don't need one really.
    It's not limited as far as I'm aware, and I don't see why Korea should be a problem.

    http://www.minecraft.net/download

    You can download it there. What you're really buying is an account. And without the account, you won't be able to log in to play. So technically you can download it, but not pay it.

    Actually, That is just the launcher :) To download the actual game you have to download the launcher then put in your credentials and sign in :) It will automatically download all the core files. You will always have to use the downloaded launcher or online minecraft.net launcher to run the game. :)

    Worth buying :)
