How many Minecraft games are there?
There is one Minecraft game, currently there are three different versions on different platforms, computer, gaming consoles, and pocket edition for mobile devices.
Computer is $26
Game consoles is $20-$40 depending on what store or site you buy it from

You can turn them off by setting the game mode to Peaceful. You can also stop them from spawning in Survival mode by typing the command /gamerule doMobSpawning false, non-hostile mobs will be turned off too.
Is Herobrine real?
Why do my kids talk about Herobrine? What is it? Why does he haunt games?
Herobrine ( /ˈhæ roˌbraɪn/ (IPA key) ʜᴀʀʀ-oh-ʙʀᴇʏᴇɴ (respell key)) is the subject of a community-made creepypasta. He is one of the major community icons of Minecraft. Herobrine has not been present in any version of Minecraft. -Official Minecraft Wiki (http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Herobrine)
Herobrine is NOT in the game. Though, you can get him into your world from a Herobrine mod.
Herobrine is not in Minecraft.
There are no references to him at all in the source code, and there is no code to allow for any entity to act like Herobrine. There is no level terrain code to generate 2×2 tunnels or elaborate dungeons with traps.
There is no possible way Herobrine can ever exist in any unmodded clients or servers. Any claims that he is in Minecraft are completely false. Any appearances he may have are caused by mods being installed.
The Minecraft Wiki and Forums do not partake in any viral Herobrine hoax. Any deletion of Herobrine-related comments or stories are purely because Herobrine does not exist, and the stories are either fictional, with an intent to mislead others, or the result of users playing mods installed on their game (possibly without their knowledge). -Official Minecraft Wiki (http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Herobrine)
(Credit to Minecraft Wiki for the two blockquotes. I did not write these two blockquotes.)
4J Studios (Makers of the console versions) will sometimes add jokes in that they “removed Herobrine”. Do not take them seriously.
What are Snapshots?
Snapshots are previews into updates. They show you what the next update contains.
Snapshots have a rare chance of corrupting worlds or files. Keep a save of your world before enabling snapshots. Minecraftygirl cannot be held responsible for corrupted worlds or files.
