    Really looking forward to this. Just in time for Christmas! This is going to make creating my Christmas themed world so much more fun. Here’s hoping I can drag a few of my friends back to the game so I can get some good co-op sessions going. It’s a shame the Redstone Lamp didn’t make it into this title update otherwise I’d be able to make a big Christmas tree with lights turning on and off but never mind, it’s a great update regardless.

    Great to see how the game is progressing with 4J working on the game all the time. Every update feels sooner than the last. I shall patiently await this update while I play on PC (I have some heating issues with my PC atm that I’ll be trying to fix soon so the Xbox version is preferable atm as it runs better).

    I think the only real things I’m wanting 4J to add at some point that they’re not doing is the ability to rent dedicated servers from them similar to how BF3 does it on consoles and the ability to share, browse and download worlds to allow the lines of adventure maps and just maps created for a particular theme to be shared. Not a complaint, just something I’d like to see eventually.

      In response to your last paragraph, 4J said at (I think) Comic con that they were thinking about servers and such.

      • Getsuga_Tensho

        I remember them saying they were wanting to do a bunch of stuff from PC a while back, I couldn’t remember if servers was one of them. Thanks for remind me. Hopefully we’ll see this after 4J have caught up with the PC version which at the rate they’re going at, won’t be too long of a wait.

        • http://howarthyoutoday.tumblr.com/ T_Money

          Hate to break it to you, but they won’t ever catch up with the PC version. They’ve emphatically stated that they don’t want it to be Minecraft on the xbox, they want it to be Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition. Once it reached update 1.2.3 (TU8) they will be going their own way. Maybe spritzing in some of the most wanted things from the PC edition along the way. I’m guessing that after TU8 they’ll be looking into servers and all that stuff..

    huge surprise! it genuinely shocked me, considering the 1.8.2 took the longest time and many people were getting anxious with it. i’ll enjoy this one a lot! thanks.

    My Christmas present from 4j studios:)

  • http://twitter.com/GenieInABottIe Gene

    4J has been working really hard for us, and yet when we don’t get what we want we begin to act like animals and say unnecessary things. Thank you 4J for everything, this amazing game you re-created onto xbox and your hardworking. Can’t wait for this! Thank you 4J crew!

    • http://www.facebook.com/gabe.wampler Gabe Wampler

      You know what you are right. Everyone was probably non-appreciative while they worked their but off to get this out before christmas! Thanks 4J!

      Thank You 4J

  • dan

  • Chuck Bosworth

    I’m glad I can start playing Survival again, now that the game works again (with breeding).

  • Steve

    Sure it won’t give us everything we want, but it’s better than nothing.

  • Terrence Phillip

    I can’t believe this! Oh sneaky 4j not telling us when it went into cert testing. This is amazing! A Christmas present from 4j to the MC360 community!

    • Getsuga_Tensho

      I’m not sure if 4J had already planned this or not but someone asked them on Twitter not to tell us when this update went into cert otherwise the wait for it to be released would feel like forever and 4J agreed. Whether they planned it or not it’s a nice surprise for Christmas.

  • Malendore
