Minecraft? Yeah an i3 is fine.
Planetside 2? i5. Certainly. There is a massive difference.
In addition to the above statement, imo, buying the i5 over the i3 would future proof you a bit as well. Planetside 2 on the i3 will be rough.
I say go with the i5, the extra cores will help you allot in multiplayer games(Planet Side 2). In addition, the i5 has a better future(will perform good in future games as well). i5 Rules!
