Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
Minecraft Update 8 Details Trickle Out

4J Studios has revealed a few more bits of info regarding Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition’s Update 8 and beyond.

Focusing on bug fixes and improvements, Update 8 will address an issue in which players were prevented from sleeping even when monsters were not near. Also, Glowstone Dust will be dropped by Blazes following the release of the update, as th meterail was thought to be too rare. In addition to this, the update will ensure that every Minecraft game will feature a Nether Fortress.

Beyond that, for future updates 4J has said it is planning on adding Iron Golems, The End portal and Spawn Eggs, as well as texture packs. Dates and further details for the arrival of these features have yet to be revealed.

One thing is for certain though. With Minecraft recently sailing past 5 million copies sold on Xbox, 4J isn’t about to slow down with the post-release support.

@2 if I were posting comments on a site dedicated to collecting Achievements in video games, I don't think I would call other gamers nerds...

@7 Your gamertag includes the word 'Alchemist' and you have over 100k gamer score. You also appear to like trolling and referencing out of date internet memes.

I think you are a nerd in a glass house, and you should probably stop throwing stones.

I love Minecraft, but the first major update stopped me from playing this game as I didn't want to start my world again after myself & 6 chums put 100's of hours into it:( Just seems a waste to start again & lose all that work.

If I pick it up again, it will be when the updates are done!

@13 That's the best you could come up with? If we're on that level, then you're 12 and fatter, so I win.

I'd tell you to get back under your bridge, but since you squeezed out from under there and ate all the pies, you wouldn't fit.

Wow. The trolls around here have certainly dropped in quality lately.

Please god, I hope they bring across the Sphax PureBDCraft texture pack. I know it's popular and all, but it DOES look really nice.

Although it should be noted that @7/@13/@19 has 100% of the minecraft cheevo's, and so was certainly self-trolling.

It's somewhat hard to get used to playing vanilla when you've spent some time using the packs :)

I just want a redstone fix! FIX REDSTONE SO THAT IT WORKS PROPERLY! PLEASE! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD! For the love of all things holy!

It worked fine before this recent update. Now it's all glitchy and screwed up... Sometimes it auto-powers itself... Sometimes it refuses to power itself or ANYTHING it touches. Sometimes powered items just vanish...

Seriously. Fix the redstone before you start thinking about what's next to add into the game.

After all these years, people still didn't learn not to feed the trolls ? I'm not really sure who deserves the pity... trolls or feeders.

Its games like this which have a lot to answer for, if this didnt exist I would probably have more gamerscore. I do love this game, but only play on creative now, looking forward to new texture packs.

Lord I hope you guys realize half the shit you guys are saying to him are easily a good 100 times worse than him just calling you a nerd.

Like fuck I outweigh a hefty amount of you when it comes to gs, Yet I have a girlfriend and I spend most of my time studying and designing games.

Big gamerscore does not equal being a nerd, and just because your a nerd doesn't mean you fill nerd stereotypes.... grow the fuck up all of you and do something with your lives besides sitting on a board trolling and fighting over stupid shit.

OT: The only thing I am really pumped for is texture packs, and achievements... but I doubt they will do anymore.
