minecraft

I just wish it would come out so I have a reason to play again. I know it takes time to code, but its been quite a while since our last Minecraft Xbox 360 update.

Minecraft Xbox 360 and PC Updates Timeline

Yes, it has been awhile, but let’s consider these Minecraft updates over the same months exactly a year apart for the PC and the Xbox 360:

Minecraft PC Updates

PC Minecraft Update 1.2.5 was released on April, 4, 2012. It added really very few features (not enough to warrant it being assigned a new version #, so… it was essentially a bug fix). The initial feature update (i.e. 1.2.1) was released on March 1, 2012. PC Minecraft Update 1.3.1 was not released until August 1, 2012.

Minecraft Xbox 360 Updates

Minecraft Xbox 360 Update TU9 was released on April 4, 2013. It was a major feature adding update. On April 16, 2013 a bug fix (TU10) was released and a second bug fix was released on May 10, 2013 (TU11). It’s now July 2, 2013, so we’ve gone almost 2 months without an update and almost 3 months without a major feature-adding update. The PC, on July 2, 2012 had gone for 3 months without an update and 4 months without a major feature-adding update; and by the time 1.3.1 was released, they had gone 4 months without an update and 5 months without a major feature-adding update. So, even if it takes until August for 4J Studios to release TU12 update, our “dry spell” will still be 1 month less than what the PC was experiencing during these same months last year.

In addition, Minecraft Xbox 360 already have several features that have been brought forward from PC version 1.2.3, 1.3.1 and even PC 1.4.2 (which was released on October 12, 2012). So, theoretically, if 4J Studios were as far behind as people like to complain they are, we really shouldn’t have see some of the features we already have until until October 2013.

    feels as if xbox mc has just been given up on and the only reason they’re still going to update 12 is because they want to reel in as much money from xbox consumers before the xbox 1 comes out and by then mc better be up to the pc version and not on bullshit update 13-14 etc.

  • Moaz

    Minecraft has lots of updates

  • william

    i agree with you they need to get going with thenext update because i getting bored with the minecraft now if they want people to get the game they just atta get the update rocking because im sick of waiting for the minecraft company to hurry up because its not about the money its about having more people on the game.its just bullsh#t comeone mojang do the 12th update this month!

    • Killzone3777

      agreed

      • Matt. St**e

        Where have I heard that username before?

    • Matt. St**e

      The computer version is written in ‘java’, they have to completely rewrite the game for the xbox 360 / new xbox one version. Just to get your spirits up, cert. testing next week.

    • Joel

      What are you William, like 6yo? Grow up. The update isn’t going to be released because you’re bored. It’ll be released when it’s released, and that’s all their is to it. Tired of all the bitching and moaning. I want the update too, but stomping your feet isn’t going to help. How many other games do you play on Xbox that are constantly giving you free new stuff to play with in the game. Not many. Hey I know, in the meantime while you’re bored, why don’t you learn about punctuation in the english language.

      • Drew_4

        Why the fuck our you raging, what has it got to do with you if some other kid wants to reply like everyone else, he is entitled to his own opinion and you don’t need to have ago at him. At the end of the day its a game and I hate when people have ago at others over stuff like this. just shut the fuck up your ugly and just get on with your life and if you tired with people bitching then don’t come on here, But I guess you just like to have ago at people don’t you!!! How can you have ago at him about learning Punctuation when you put ’6yo?’ And where you from???!!!

        • Joel

          Pretty sure the only one raging here, is you pal. You’re going to talk to me about the english language after dropping multiple F-bombs in your attempt at insulting me? “I’m ugly” you said, haha. You’re complaining, about me complaining, about that other guy’s complaining. That’s laughable. Just so you know though, ’6yo’ is an abbreviation for ’6 years old’. Why don’t you tell me a few more times about having “ago” at somebody though. Thanks for playin’!

          • michael

            So your a keyboard warrior having ago at a six year old about his punctuation……. Sad

        • Matt. St**e

          William is giving his own opinion, and we are giving opinions too.

      • AdoseofBuckly’s Assistant

        They should have TU12 out by now because they first said at the end of July, then early august, and it is now the middle of August. Honestly aren’t you wondering why minecraft updates for Pc are coming out in two seconds, but the minecraft updates, even the small ones come out 2 months after the last one, and the big ones take 3 months? If you don’t play Xbox 360 minecraft then you dont have any business here at all. Because it sounds like you only play Pc minecraft so stop telling people to learn fucking english and learn it yourself, I have seen a seven year old have better grammar then you. Now please go fuck yourself.

        • Joel

          You would assume wrong. I play only on the 360 version. You should spend more time researching samething, than you do being a random asshole. You would know that the PC version has no restrictions to deal with, like Microsoft for example. The Xbox version is also NOT just a straight port from PC. The entire game has been written from the ground up. Learn to have some patience. I guess you could bitch and moan, but I really don’t think it’s going to make them get the update out any faster. So you know, MS now has the update, and it’s at their discretion when to releasYou would assume wrong. I play only on the 360 version.

        • Matt. St**e

          25th at latest, probably. It’s been in cert. testing for 10 days, release just after that. A short while after, they’ll start selling texture and mash-up packs. :)

    • Matt. St**e

      Grammar of a little child. You probably are one.

  • ghrmtn3hdhen

      Xbox 360

  • ryan

    • Matt. St**e

      Next week, Minecraft4Xbox tweeted.

  • Drew_4

    I really think we should get texture pack that would be a massive feature added to the game and and it would encourage more people to play. im not to bothered if we have to pay for it with Microsoft points but I would rather not because pc users don’t need to!!

    • Matt. St**e

      It’s free. But, you need any type of Xbox live account. :)

  • Jesus

    Joel your fucking stupid every body knows what 6yo means he means punctuation you fucking retard and besides you have to wait its hard to make updates bitches

  • Jesus

    Ggg

  • Jesus

    Gggggg

  • Jesus

    Hdhvbs

  • somone mad

    This is fuking bull when was the last update about 5 months ago omg that is so f***in bull now im in high school and dont have as much time anymore man 4j is so coked up on the pc they dont give a fuck about xbox so fuk u mojang and 4j

  • brenden

    Joel your right, mojang isn’t going to release the update any quicker with people whining about it. If I were a producer at mojang I would purposely take longer to release the update or not even release it at all because they are making these updates out of gratitude. Does anyone pay for these updates? No. So these people need to stop telling mojang to f#ck of and be grateful for the work and money 4J studios put into this.

    • Joel

      Exactly. Though it seems fewer and fewer people remember what the word ‘gratitude’ actually means. We’re surrounded by a bunch of children, that want what they want right this instant, and their going to stomp their feet until they get it.

    • Matt. St**e

      That is an amazing point. :)

  • Reiss Holden-Payton

    I need a new update fucking hell I want cats enemies heads ahhhh

  • John

    Its kinda sad to know three of the people who are complaining about this issue…

    • Matt. St**e
