What Minecraft on Xbox 360 is Going To Be Like

You heard at E3 that Minecraft is coming to the Xbox 360? Unfortunately with the rate it gets patched this is the only way they’ll be able to release it!

    Order now, and we'll include the Encyclopedia Britannica for Xbox 360 absolutely free. That's 30 CDs for the price of 13!

    …and apparently being published by 2K… sometimes.

    PC only games being updated often for MAH 360?… We can only assume that Notch will take the style Gabe Newell has set for the PC to console games… *coughneverbeenupdatedcough*

    Oh my god, it's gonna be like Street Fighter back in the days.

    Notch announced that Minecraft will be on Xbox Live Arcade. It is not going to be availble for purchase at any game store!

    It appears the odds are…
    Stacked against them.

    And then… Expansion packs at 20$ for 3 new blocks !

    Minecraft is still in Beta… why is this funny?

    Unless there's actually a final version of minecraft eventually, this is just another reason I'm glad I don't have an Xbox360.

    I'll come right out with it, I'm a Nintendo kinda guy. But the prospect of kinect controls interests me, because, well, I have no idea how it would work.

    The image is funny, but I can't see it working any differently than how it does now, the downloaded updates are tiny and fast, certainly that can be delivered over Live trivially, and I'm sure that's why they made this decision.

    What excites and scares me at the same time, is that I don't think this game will run on Java, but XNA, which would probably bring performance improvements, but at the cost of portability. Confession time (Samus Aran, LOLZ), I'm also a Mac user. I'm scared the game will drop support for me and my snobby, iComputer using brethren.

    Also, forgot to mention my other concern. I wonder how much enjoyment people will get from the game when they can't mod it, load backed up saves, and mess around with their inventory as easily as they can now. Just speculation on my part, but another thing to think about.

    This only seals the fate of eventually a creeper outfit on the avatar marketplace.

    I'm gonna stay with the computer version. Can you download awesome texture packs from XBL? Like Doku and GeruDoku? Nope. You can't.
    Or can you do this, like I did?!?!

    I took it at night like an idiot. BUT NO!!! You can't!!!

    This honestly could have been worse. If every single time Team Fortress 2 updated on the Xbox 360, there was a new game, I'd go play Halo or something.

    in a distant future valve buys minecraft…

    v 1.56: added Hats

    So by version 4, they will have 120% more wiggling and waggling! Madness!

    For whoever was wondering if it was a $60 or $20, I am not too sure, but I am almost certain it is an Xbox Arcade title.

    I may have seen it in an xbox live arcade montage video, but also there is this.

    Some of the achievements have been revealed, and it looks like it is an arcade gamerscore game, which means not retail. http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthre
