Default More news on Xbox Minecraft

Feature: Minecraft ? how to rebuild the world for Xbox | Hookshot Inc.

The first release will be only in Survival mode. While you won't be able to interact with PC servers, you will be able to download images to sites like Facebook. While they are a bit behind on features, they hope to update it regularly so you will eventually get many of the aspects of Minecraft that the current and future versions of the PC version has.

A video by one of the developers. What he says is more interesting than what he shows. The interesting bits are:
  • It will have a small tutorial built-in to lead players through the basics
  • As we know, the crafting will be easier as it will tell you if you have the correct resources to built a specific item.
  • You can play servers with 1, 2 or 4 players on the same screen.
  • You can play with up to 8 on the Xbox Live service.
I still haven't learnt how they plan to do skins or accounts or whether mods will be able to be added.

There's no way MS will allow mods for minecraft.

I'm a little worried just how much support Mojang will be allowed or bothered to offer... I just remember the Xbox TF2 debacle where updates were so problematic (primarily around Valve's desire to offer them for free) that it just stopped getting maintained one day.

But still, as long as I can build stuff with a friend I'll probably grab it.. although I wish it had something more than 200 gamerscore for such an endless game.

One of the issues is that MS charges around $10,000 per update. They actively try to discourage developers frequently updating software. And they especially don't want developers giving updates away free because they don't get a cut of that - hence the high update license cost. It's not necessarily that developers can't be bothered updating, but that the cost:benefit determination falls down on the side of waiting and rolling updates together 2 years later instead.

It's their loss really, it's stuff like that that made Dust514 PS3 exclusive.
