Minecraft Xbox 360 Released And Reviewed

Well hello everyone,

I know I am a little late on this one. Minecraft Xbox has already made over 1 Million Dollars for Mojang and topped all the Microsoft charts.

notch: Minecraft: Xbox 360 edition should be out today, and the reviews are popping in. 83 on metacritic so far, which is about 0.23 per Xbox.

That is not just because it cost 4 billion Microsoft points when it was released;

notch: Apparently, Minecraft for Xbox costs 4 billion Microsoft Points! If it sells just ONE copy, we’ll all be rich!! 😀 😀

 

notch: (That’s a temporary glitch, btw. Not the actual cost.)

 

…or the fact that notch encouraged people to buy it over and over again;

notch: I think there might be a bug in the marketplace, could you help me test it by buying the game over and over? #marketingbytricking

 

Kappische: @notch great moneytization stratagy! 😀

 

 

As I said above it did very will from the start!

notch: Well then. Saw the official sales numbers for the first 24 hours of Minecraft Xbox 360, and it’s very, very good. Profitable in an hour.

 

Lets take a look at the art – I have a feeling we have seen this before though…

Very nice…

Hello,

So we have a new snapshot again this week, I have rushed to put this post up as soon as I could. Within the hour I believe 😀

Thursday afternoon Jeb tweeted a link to download Minecraft Snapshot 12w17a, Here is the info we have on it so far.

Here’s the development snapshot of week 17, 2012! This week’s list of changes:

  • Added editable books
  • Wooden half slabs in four colors (and they act as wood instead of stone)
  • Bug fixing and tweaks, notably about entity collisions, “picking blocks” (creative mode), and chat
  • Some other, censored stuff

Get the snapshot here:

You can read this on the Mojang Blog

This all sounds very exciting! Editable Books? I’m looking fwd to checking that out. I also wonder what the ‘censored stuff’ is too?

Jeb also tweeted this;

jeb_: I think this will be this week’s top FAQ: The book recipe has been changed

I’m guessing it is up-to us to work it out.. Do you think it involves in sacks?

  • Added a demo mode for non-premium users (won’t be available until we do a full update)
  • Added bonus chest option to create world screen

Personally I would be quite interested in seeing what these chests have to offer.. What is the chance of a diamond pickaxe or sword?

I’m also looking fwd to doing a video on the demo sometime.. Try not to die for the full hour.. Hmm.. could make a nice epic episode.. I wonder if it would be multi-player?

I think Single player commands could be handy too 🙂

Minecraft Snapshot 12w08a Download

Well guys, It has taken me some time to get round to this update as I have been obsessed with Homeland and not been able to get away long enough to type this up.. I’m actually watching it as I type this 😉

 

…Anyways, Jeb released the latest snapshot 12w08a last week;

jeb_: Snapshot week 8: http://www.mojang.com/2012/02/23/minecraft-snapshot-12w08a/

Here’s the development snapshot of week 8, 2012! We’ve been a little bit busy with the LEGO trip and Mojam, so the list of changes is a bit shorter than usual:

  • Added a defense mob to villages
  • Added up-side-down stairs
  • Many changes to the world and lighting system

Get the snapshot here:

If you haven’t downloaded Minecraft you can grab it here: www.minecraft.net/download

Next week we will mainly focus on bug fixing.

// jeb and jon (Twitter: @jeb_ and @jonkagstrom)

 

Jeb & Jonkagstrom were teasing the update a little before the release day.

jeb_: Helping @jonkagstrom with the artwork for the villager’s new zombie defense

mollstam: Deploying a sweet update filled with love and candy to the server join parts of the system. Might be a bit jumpy.

jeb_: We are preparing for the weekly snapshot… so let’s feature creep!

jeb_: Up-side-down stairs are the same block as the normal stairs, but flipped when you place them on the bottom of another (from below)

jeb_: Not doing up-side-down half-slabs right now, but maybe later. Next week will be bug-fixing week for a possible 1.2 release

 jonkagstrom: Me and @jeb_ have added a new mob.. Don’t mess with the villagers.

 

Looks cool 😀
