    Expected these to be 400pts, so 140pts is a very pleasant surprise!

    • XBLA_Alex

      160 :)

      • http://twitter.com/toythatkills mAtt

        Haha, that makes more sense, 140 did seem a bit unusual. Still remains pleasant though!

    Sensible pricing? I’m shocked! I got bored of Minecraft super quick but my brother didn’t so he’ll be all over this.

    • Anonymous

        *Jaw Drops* I was expecting like 400 MSP but 160!!! SOLD!!!!

      • MC

    140 points for something that’s free on PC? seems excessive to me! There should be something more to it than “just skins”… IMO

    • Kevin K.

      Are you serious!? 160 MSP is excessive??? EXCESSIVE!!! You are crazy, we pay $20 for Xbox and PC is $30 and you are complaining about spending $2!!! There is 4 packs, if I am not mistaken, which will be $28 in total. Most of these things you wouldn’t even think of making. Sure I use Bing Rewards, so I can get 100 MSP in about a week, but really you are complaining about 160 MSP being excessive. The Weapons Skin Pack for Gears of War was $45, that’s excessive.

      • Ryan

        If I’m honest I totally agree, in the UK, MSP’s are sold for £1 for roughly 100 points (i.e. 800 points = £7.99), which makes the game itself only £16 and the skin pack only £1.60.

        I’m sorry, but if you want to play a game which people make as a full time profession, you’re going to have to be prepared to pay a little, the staff at Mojang and 4J etc. don’t get money from nowhere, they have to get paid for their jobs.

    • Cyanide

      I could make one of those on the PC for free right now.
      Why charge us for you to put them on the Xbox version.
      Not hard

      • Yeh

        No, you can go to a skin editor and make one not start from scratch so therefore you should Stfu and gtfo ok b

    160 MSP for 40 skins seems very reasonable to me…

    I’m just not sure which of the ‘Splosion Man themed skins I like most. The scientist is pretty amazing.

  • EternalBeoulve

    So wait, all of these characters (Banjo, Creeper, Masterchief, etc) can be bought for just 160 points?

    • XBLA_Alex

      Each Pack goes for 160 msp :)

      • http://twitter.com/louiedog louiedog
      • Jamie

        Each pack? Are all 40 skins in one pack or several?

        • Anonymous

          According to the post above, it’s all 40 skins for 160 MSP.

          • Anonymous

            All 40 skins for 160 MSP.

  • Jamie

    I cant wait for this now! I’m a crazy fan when it comes to Halo!

  • Moonshine

    Batman, Robin, Joker, Spiderman, Hulk, Iron man

    • http://twitter.com/louiedog louiedog

      Don’t expect any properties that aren’t owned by Microsoft, or maybe from an indie game like Super Meat Boy, for $2. Licensing is probably too big of a PITA for that.

  • sans gluten

    Squidman is now my new fav.
    160 MSP is a great deal. I have no problem paying $2, the price of a pop ( or soda for you weirdos ;) ), to support this awesome game and the people involved with it while getting 40 new skins.

    Speak with your wallet!
    Like it – buy it.
    Don’t like it – don’t buy it…
    …but first – try the skins out for free :)

  • Anonymous

    @160 points that is down right reasonable, glad that MS and 4j decided to keep the skin packs relatively cheap, now I’ll definately pick one up, if that terrible rumor of it being like 400msp was true, was gonna skip it completely.

  • Anonymous

    So whats the Skin in the 2nd pic, cause thats not Carmine(Along with MC and Grunt), so thats another new one????

      Jack of Blades from Fable 1

      • Anonymous

        The Second pic in the bigger set of pics, with the grunt and MC, that is not Jack of Blades, looks more like an Elite as nigg mentioned.

    • nigg

      An Elite

      • Anonymous

        Thats what I was thinking, so we know 16 of the 40 skins, :P way to go Alex!

  • Spectrum Bravo

    We have to pay for content that is free on the PC?

    • CornCob McGee

      its going through microsoft. what do you expect? if Jeb had his way, i bet you there would be mod-capability already. if you want to not pay for it, then why dont you just play on the computer?

  • Cyanide

    Why charge?
    Valid Reason Please…

    • Anonymous

      To pay the people who are making this for you???

      • Cyanide

        They are made by users on the PC for free.

        • Brian

          You are charged because there would be no point in making content for users if you’re not getting paid. Users can make skins for free on the PC, not on the XBOX. If you don’t like it, why don’t you just play the pc version?

        • Anonymous

          Those are fan made skins, the key word being Fan, Not just anyone is allowed to code for XBLA, or who knows what could happen to games, so MS is giving us 40 professionaly made skins for about 2$, not really that bad.

          • Cyanide

            I have those skins, I have used all of them except the elite.
            They are Fan made…

    • Wes

      It’s only 40 skins for 160 MS points. Not too much. It makes sense to pay because the people worked on all 40 skins

  • Anonymous

    I like how the one screen shot looks to be on Halo. ^_^

  • Kevin K.

    (._.) DItto to what I said below. We paid less for the game. And Console Controls are simpler than PC.

  • Kevin K.

    Herobrine anyone???

    • They call me germ

      i’d scare people with that

  • http://www.facebook.com/ODSTBrian Brian Walker

    This makes Minecraft even better. Now we just need maps to download, mods, and online to connect to any server, not just friends.

    • http://www.facebook.com/ODSTBrian Brian Walker

      Btw, I love the Halo skins and to Squid one. lol

    • http://twitter.com/Periculous22 Joseph Zabukovec

      4J said they are going to do texture packs, online maps, and maybe mods In the future!! :D

    160MSP. SOLD.

  • SmartGuy

    In the picture of chief and grunt, there is another. I first thought it was carmine, but it’s skin was greyish, not beige. Possibly an elite. Would make sense if it was.

    If the Creeper and Splosion Man touch, your whole build will be blasted to smithereens in an apocalyptic blast!

  • facetouch

    Since they seem to be doing Xbox exclusives, I’d laugh so hard if they revealed Gears skins.

    • Im_A_Spoon

      Gears of war? They already have Clayton Carmine from Gears of war.

      • facetouch

        Oh…yes they did. Thanks. Forgot about that after I saw Banjo.

  • Ak46

    • MC

    Hey guys, if you look at the photo with Master Cheif and the Grunt, you can see an Elite! It seems we can be elites as well! Cool!

  • Turby

  • http://www.facebook.com/dalton.vanderelst Dalton VanderElst

    when is it coming on xbox?

  • http://twitter.com/AlbertConseil Alfalfa Conseil

    this game was profitable an hour after release, it broke every xbla sales record at the highest price tag for an arcade game to date. yet they cant give you some measly skins for free?
    gotta love MS!

    • Yo Mamma

      It’s literally a large png image :/

      • Cyanide

        Large…!? You have to zoom in about 1250% depending on what you use to make skins!
        They are like 1kb 50kb at most!

  • brendin

    is there going to be another 25

  • off1c3

    Ok I was WAY off on the price. I did think u where going to try and milk us for these but wow was I wrong!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1616107770 Charlie Angel Gibson

    We’re going to have to pay for skins? Seriously… that is not good xD I own both versions of the game, PC and XBLA, and on PC you just go find a skin and download it for free. Can anyone inform me why we should have to pay for them on 360?

    • joblobro

      It’s not 4j that’s doing this.
      Microsoft is a very greedy company, and they will not allow things like this to come out for free.
      They are already stretching it letting them patch for free with all of this content. If microsoft CAN make money, they WILL.

    • Kevin K.

      Because XBLA was $10 Cheaper than PC.

  • pistons hell ya


  • randomSquid

    Needs An E.T skin

  • Max Pollock

    mario skin?

    • http://twitter.com/BrandonBergs Brandon Bergs

      chances are that they won’t have a Mario, Link, Zelda or anything Nintendo related because they would have to ask for permission and Nintendo is their competition.

  • http://twitter.com/Gram_Cracker Gram

    Well, 160 MSP was the dream price in my head, so that works for me. Just hope they have some more fan faves that aren’t from FPS games.

  • Rargle fragale

    needs a pirate skin

  • Raf

    Did anyone else notice that in the picture with the Chief and grunt that there was a halo ring in the background.

    • http://twitter.com/BrandonBergs Brandon Bergs

      Yes that would be amazing to be able to create

  • Mandog29

    we should get only 1 free skin the rest we need to pay for that seems fair right?

  • ror kor

    super cool!!!

  • vxtremx

    Hay i don’t think that a elite i think it a brute because you can see the helmet the chest plate and you can see parts of the skin the elite near enough has full armor on and will have the little squid face so i’m going with brute.
