    For many years now, the team behind Minecraft have been working on a super high-resolution graphics park for the game. Intending to move away from the rather crude presentation, the release was looking to implement a near realistic level of graphical representation.

    In a report via DSOGaming, however, despite the project being in the works for several years, it seems that it has now officially been ditched. Why you ask? Well, apparently it was a little too ‘technically demanding’.

    I was just reading how they abandoned Space Cadet 3D Pinball because apparently "they couldn't port it without it breaking". What a bunch over at M$.

    Why don't they just put out variable packs? 512, 1024, and 2048? Shouldn't just give up because the highest res pack doesn't perform.. yet.

    Perhaps they are working on a sequel.
