    I have to get these.

    These are actually way cooler than they have any right to be!

  • ViaBlaze

    Clayton carmine Woo!
    Can’t wait!

  • http://twitter.com/Thrashballer Jalen

    I don’t care how much this costs now. Definately going to buy it :)

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

      Bob over at Microsoft just jizzed his pants after reading your comment.


    will they cost anything?

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

      lol. good one.

  • Anonymous

    If they’re not free, they better be cheap. I may not be able to stop myself from buying them regardless of price, but the cheaper they are, the happier I’ll be when buying them.

    • Monk

      It’s only 240 points, not that much. You’re wasting about 3 pounds/dollars.

      • Anonymous

        Ah, OK, I hadn’t seen pricing listed anywhere. I could probably do that.

        • http://twitter.com/toythatkills mAtt

          Pricing hasn’t been announced yet, 240 was for a theme.

          • Anonymous

            Oh, right, forgot about the theme. Hopefully the price of the skin pack is reasonable and isn’t more than 240MSP.

          • Tom

            its 160ms

          • Anonymous

            Yep, price was released last week.

      • Jared

        Its not 240, they confirmed this…. Its below 400 but they wont tell us

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

      it will be at least 400 ms points, if not more. they are testing out how far they can go, and already succeeded with the ridiculous price tag for the game itself. mark my words!

      • Anonymous

        Hope not. 400MSP = no sale. I don’t need them that bad. It’s not any different than wasting MSP on useless avatar clothes/props.
        Please don’t read that to mean that there are *useful* avatar items. Every single one is a waste of MSP.

        • -

          They said already it will cost 150MSP.

          • Anonymous

            The date stamp on my post indicates that I posted that yesterday before the price was announced. And it’s 160MSP.

        Yeah, seven dollars less than the PC version. RIDICULOUS!

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

          the PC version has a close to infinite map and lets you have access to almost infinite user mods.
          how big is the xbox map? yeah right, 800×800 blocks, ahem….
          how many mods do we get? maybe a handful, if we are lucky.

          • Anonymous

            It lacks some features of the PC version (mods, larger map), and gains some that aren’t in the PC version (split screen, tutorial, etc), and is still cheaper.

            Seems reasonable to me.

    this pack is turning out to be amazing

  • Anonymous

    BANJO!!!!!!! However, I’d be more impressed if a skin of Jack Blades was released. Now raise your hand if you know who I’m talking about.

    • Rob

      There is a jack of blades in this same pack. Im confused!

      • Anonymous

        Jack Blades, as in the bass player from Night Ranger.

        • Anonymous

          and of the collaboration band Damn Yankees and Shaw/Blades!

    • asdffdsa12344321

      Are you retarded or just trolling?

      • Anonymous

        Just making some 80′s music references. Not sure how that classifies as trolling though.

  • Jamie

    Banjo, Jack of Blades and Carmine!!!! This is now a day one buy for me…

  • Quinn

    Make a Sora (kingdom hearts) or Riku (also kingdom hearts) skin please :D

  • http://twitter.com/wicket2961 Chris

    Is it bad of me to want Kratos from God of War?

  • klunks


  • Anonymous

    Please let there be a Dovahkiin skin!

  • awesome

    all of the skins are games that are owned by microsoft or 4J. if its not owned by Micosoft or 4J than it cant be a skin



    • Mr. Wepsley

      Oh, they’ll do it. It’s inevitable.

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

        Has been done. :D

  • <3 4j

    Carter from Halo:Reach!!!!!! please

  • http://twitter.com/xMCPrankerx Austin Hutchison


  • Justin80

    I cant wait for this! please add call of duty skins or halo skins if there was skins of both of those games i would certainly buy it!!!

  • http://twitter.com/Timmzy27 Matthew Timms

    Clayton Carmine!!!! SOLD!

  • EpicBish

    I wish there was a SkinDex type thing :( I want pedobear with a suit

  • Basapostma

    Why don’t you make a system where you can make your own skin

    • http://twitter.com/Timmzy27 Matthew Timms

      Because they can make more money selling us skin packs

    • http://twitter.com/zingrook zingrook

      Already done. It’s called “Minecraft PC + Paint Shop”. #Trolling

    • http://twitter.com/ReachRody Rody Albuerne

      because they want your moneyy!!!

      • Jared

        No, its because too many people are inappropriate. And there a tons of children playing minecraft on the xbox version

        • dz987

          a lot of kids play the pc version to but they get custom skins microsoft just wants more money im just happy the updates are free!!

          • http://www.facebook.com/lassi.saarela.1 Lassi Saarela

            You cry because you got Ps3

          • Tim Visee

            So? PS3 is way better, you have to check it’s proformance ;). Like PS3 has a lot better processor, but it’s harder for game programmers to use all it’s preformance because it doesn’t work the same as components from other consoles. For example, read this post: http://wireshock.com/why-playstation-3-ps3-is-much-better-and-future-proof-than-xbox-360/#comment-270

          • XxCTRCOGGEARxX

            xbox 360 is way better than a ps3
            why do you come on this website its called playxbla
            if you reply back get over it yeah

          • Tim Visee

            Hang on a seccond. At first, you said this is an xbox site, you’re right, this is the first time I saw this website and I didn’t know it was a website speccially for XBox.
            Then, why do you think XBox is better? I’m a game programmer and I also worked with programming for consoles, so I’m sure I know a bit more about the system’s itself, how they work, what you could do with it and ofcourse it’s preformance. With this PS3 wins, if you program your game on the right way, because like I said it’s harder to use all the processor power of the Play Station cause it has 7 cells, it’s easier on the XBox, but yes, if you use all the processor power it’s almost two times better than the XBox power.

          • PARRA HD


          • Mr.Minecraft

            Oh, i see. Once you run out of arguments, you suddenly become a “game programmer”. PS3 should have been made to be more compatible. And that’s why they have so many exclusives, because they have to make custom games. Also, it’s called playXBLA! And my cousin who i visit frequently has a PS3, and with the graphics and speed of everything, i see no difference. I will admit i do like Littlebigplanet and Killzone though.

          • Toby Turner

            No, PS3 is way bad than xbox 360, one reason: In xbox 360 they patch glitches and all that stuff, in ps3 they allow all glitches and my cousin said that if you have 15 ps3′s on, it create a blackhole scientist said that but it’s only in Honduras I don’t know why. XBOX 360 IS WAY BETTER.

          • Mr.Minecraft

            Dafuq? A console will not make a blackhole you goddamn idiot. Go to school again before you make yourself look like an idiot more.

        • Wilson

          if they didnt want our money then why didnt they make it free like the pc version…. the pc version get thousands for free but xbox gets 40 and you have to pay!!!!

        • Darkclower

          That argument makes no sense.
          And if that was true, they would add a filter so you can turn off other peoples skins.

      • Kevin

        not really, a free update, plus 40+ skins for 2 bucks.
        but microsoft uses our money to make a gold throne for bill gates

      • Starfishstrikesback

        Its because they need to pay for all the workers who have worked getting skins,textures,Updates for minecraft.Also its only 160 mp for 40+ skins its not like there trying to scam you.They just need money.

    • Jared

      Its none of those reason, it’s because too many people are inappropriate and there are children playing minecraft. Look at black ops with the custom emblem thing..

      • http://twitter.com/MasterID94 Joshua Graham

        look at forza motorsport they can have custom car designs why cant we have custom character skins its the same thing besides i dont have little kid joing my game so they wouldnt be affected also what age group of kis are you talking about
        age groups;
        Minecraft 7+
        Forza motorsport 4 3+

        • TaKN SlicE

          I’m only 11 turning 12 and I don’t care about bad skins or naked skins it’s funny case I can annoy other online players so who cares about the younger kids who play minecraft and anyway there parents won’t even let them buy it

          • Atrum Evo

            Your parents care that’s who. if they would see you or one of your friends playing with a “bad skin” you wouldn’t be playing for a while. lol

    • Derp

      It seems they’re only trying to make xbox exclusive skins.

      • http://www.facebook.com/ryan.campbell.522066 Ryan Campbell

        Well they could have a system where people could make and rate skins and the top 5 skins at the end of the month get published and if one is inappropriate they could pick the next on the list and etc.

        • John

          You know, that actually sounds like a pretty cool system. Make it into like 20 differents skins every month, and there would be player submitted skins everywhere.

      • Jake

        they cant have many exclusive though since pc can just make these ‘exclusive’ skins

      • Herp

        Now there’s a surprise… I waa totally expecting Mario, Ratchet & Clank and Samus…

        • glopatronicals

          its cose its on xbox they use xbox caracters im more suprised master cheif aint in this

    • http://www.facebook.com/aaron.kleiman.399 Aaron Kleiman

      cuz they would CONSTANTLY update the game.it doesnt work that way

    • http://twitter.com/Lizardbeth Lis Boriss

      because they couldn’t handle the influx of lawsuits from people creating and uploading copyrighted characters. Well, that and lots of dicks

      • Duncan

        How come minecraft its self hasnt gotten these copyright issues then?

        • Rofllol

          Because it wouldn’t be worth suing for that, same reason it’s not as serious as when you get caught modding pc versions of games.

    • http://www.facebook.com/addison.hillman Addison Hillman

      Its also not as easy as it sounds, they’re having enough difficulty catching up with the PC version.

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

        But they are doing a Spectacular job!

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

      They stated they might, but there could be legal Issues. I’m still crossing my fingers though.

    • jondope

      goog minecraftskins.com

      • jondope


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

      They are thinking about it eventually, but the problem is that people may create things with copyrights on them like Link, Zelda, Ezio, or other things and “that would get lawyers excited”-4J Studios twitter

  • ryan

    When’s this also whens the update

    • Anonymous

      They’re going to come out at the same time, but nobody knows for sure when that will be yet.

      I read somebody saying that the developer has submitted the update to certification, so it shouldn’t be terribly long before it’s available, unless there’s an issue that they missed in testing.

      • bilbo

        I think itll be tomarrow cuz the last one was onna friday 2

      • SmartGuy

        When it was submitted (3 days ago maybe?), they said it takes UP TO 10 days for microsoft to release it. Since this is not so big of an update (bug fixes, pistons and skins) I`d say 2-4 more days to wait. Place your bets now folks!

  • andreas white

    milltary skin

  • Paul

    awesome you need to add a Naruto skin please :)

  • Darkshadow

    Naruto skin would be awsome :D

  • Minecrafter

    Does Clayton’s head explode at random times during the game?

    • Clayton Carmine

      That’s offensive bro.

        Well you would think that you have a better helmet.

        Just stating a fact… doesn’t seem to stop too many bullets does it?

        • Clayton Carmine

          Ironic actually, it can reflect a sniper shot apparently for me… I imagined Anthony looking down from the heavens saying “What the hell! That’s not fair!”

  • WesTheGamer

    People, it looks like they’re only making 4j studios games and xbox live exclusive games skins.

  • GordanFreeman

    I expect there will be a female too. Joanna Dark from Perfect Dark perhaps? The XBLA version was produced jointly by 4J and Rare and published by Microsoft.

    • http://www.facebook.com/xXBloodyTearsXx Aaron DeCosta

      there is a female… ms. splosion-man

  • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf


    A new Banjo game please, Rare! Step away from the Kinect and make a videogame.

  • awesome

    the skins can be no more than 600 msp the might be 240 msp

    • http://twitter.com/Navarin Buster Wolf

      600?! Don’t give them ideas.

  • Bond84


  • stevez

    iron man skin would be a cool thing to see in this skin pack :)

  • CaptainBaconStripz

    Assassins Creed Skin

  • off1c3

    At this rate, we’ll have seen half of them. I say just stop showing them, we seen 10, I think that’s enough. I’d like to have some I haven’t seen. And I bet this will cost 800 to 1200 MSP. :(

  • DJ Jamyboy

    DeadMau5 Skin

  • DJ Jamyboy

    do a DeadMau5 Skin

  • DJ Jamyboy

    it will cost 240mps or less it wont be 800 or 1200 is only skins and skins are free for pc and the hame cost 1600 mps

  • 4j is awsome

    Ash Ketchum from Pokemon
    or Squirtle also from Pokemon

      you do realize pokemon is owned by nintendo, one of microsoft’s number one rivals?

    I need to get this! I don’t mind paying, but I don’t want to get more ms points. I only have 240 now. I can’t wait to discover all 40 of these skins!

  • Guest420

    Ima laugh if off1c3 is right!

  • brett

    i has 6000 mc points im buying all these epic skins (accept the prisoner 1 :P

  • Unknown

    Perhaps players could suggest skins for future packs, or possibly create their own and send it in via email and someone(s) could possibly look them over and take them also into consideration for furture skin packs,

    - Don’t hate – Just a thought / suggestion. -

  • http://twitter.com/Marmoroth Eddie

    the reasonal price for this pack would be ( 400 ms points) $5 bucks, am i right????? also will the be selling the whole skins in a pack or each seperatly? o.0

  • http://www.facebook.com/william.airhart William Airhart

    what about transformers skins or skyrim skins

  • CrispyGoomba

    Holy shovel, Banjo! Now only if there is Conker and you have me sold.

  • idunno

    hey some of us are not kids including me

  • Shadowman410

    I hope they make assassin’s creed skins. Or left 4 dead 2 skins, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they did perfect dark ones either.

  • scottter

    Halo skins would look amazing e.g. a Spartan,elite,cortaner,a OSDT and captain keys…… Or just Nobel team. :)

  • scottter

    Also the avengers

  • http://www.facebook.com/josh.bell.100046 Josh Bell

    Have the cookie monster and a dwarf as 2 of the 40+ skins pls

  • http://www.facebook.com/zach.finch.77 Zach Finch

    What a joke these garbage skins?? Funny thing I bet you 90% of you MineCraft players are goona buy these. I can tell you one thing Im not. Should be able to customize my own skin seriously!

    • Jake

      your missing out then :)

  • Soma535

    They are making halo skins i know because they already made a grunt for sure.

      they cant do mario because he is made by nintendo. wouldnt be surprised if they can find a way to do marvel heroes though

      • Ollie121

        Banjo Kazooi is Nintendo they have made him theres a picture up :L

        • Shklooshklan

          Banjo is NOT nintendo he was Rare property and Micro soft bought them, this is why Banjo Kazooie nuts and bolts was for the XBOX360.

          • BobTheReaper


  • http://twitter.com/Gram_Cracker Gram

    Considering the sales records the game broke, they will sell the pack at a ridiculous price.

  • Flik Triplez

    Anyone else see stone bricks in the picture with the red cloak blades guy?

    • Mallrat82

      Those are actually just stone slabs stacked on top of each other. Trust me, I’ve used quite a bit of them recently. Although stone brick would be a nice little extra to throw in with the update!

  • Jake

    who cares how much it costs really, I love minecraft and if it costs 400msp it has to be worth the points, I think we should feel lucky mojang decided to accept it going onto xbox, nobody really expected it XD also a dragonborn skin would be awesome

  • http://twitter.com/millar_sean Official Sean Millar

    Castle Crashers Skins
    The Avengers
    family guy
    halo masterchief
    pig (minecraft)
    indiana jones
    etc etc

  • jon

    oh no it says pack 1 does that mean we have to buy it

  • http://www.facebook.com/KEWB99 Bryce Moore

    I wish they’d let us buy an individual skin for 40 points or so. Maybe 80. And then offer the pack at a discount. I really only plan on using the Banjo skin as I actually use a Banjo skin on the PC version.

  • http://www.facebook.com/thebeardedmenace Thomas The Bearded Menace Ritt

    Abe from OddWorld would be an awesome skin. Munch Too!

  • Dave

    They better not charge us for this either. It was enough that I had to pay $20 for the PC version and then another $20 for the XBLA version. I expect all upcoming content to be free and I believe that’s fair.

  • Shawneboy

    Now how much is this gonna cost me

  • Dan96

    They should make it so you can create your own skin like on the PC.

  • EternalBeoulve

    Ezio / Altair!
    Geth (Mass Effect)

  • Zombie Smack45

    you should make a hulk and batman skin

  • IwantMyOwnSkins

    I have an idea: If people can get the skin pack they can easily mod the game to get their own skins… its actually not that hard.

    • http://www.facebook.com/aaron.kleiman.399 Aaron Kleiman

      actually it is…

  • Hackbros1

    you should be able to buy a skin creator for like 400 MP so you can make your own skins or they should make player packs of skins and it would tell you witch players are in each one so it would be like
    Captinsparklez ,Nearbygamer ,Hackbros1 ,Chimnyswift11 and so on

    • Mikeisevolving

      Now this is a truly awesome idea/compromise. I hate paying for things but I’d buy this.

    • http://twitter.com/Lizardbeth Lis Boriss

      I like this idea, but only if when you have your skin accepted for sale and it’s posted in the store, you get a percentage of MSP credited back into your account with each sale. Even if it was 5 MSP per skin, if it’s popular enough that could add up to a lot.

    That’s bull shit if they make us pay for this!

    • http://www.facebook.com/aaron.kleiman.399 Aaron Kleiman


      • http://www.facebook.com/nick.schmit.14 Nick Schmit

        because we dont get the choice of skins and if we were charged for the skins people would leave the xbox version and go play it on the computer Microsoft would lose big time money!!!!!

        • Mike

          It’s $2… You DO realize Microsoft makes the prices and they had planned this to be 400msp but 4J argued.

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

            4J peoples are badass mofos!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Chase-Lambert/1110048812 Chase Lambert

    They should do some borderlands skins

  • Joe

    Paul McCartney, John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison would be a great pack and call it ”The Fab Four”


  • supermariofanatic

    can you at least answer this question? but if you dont i understand becuz u dont want 2 spoil it 4 evry 1. but is there gonna be a mario skin?

  • SNWLeader

    Honestly I like the idea of Skin Packs, but you all are better men than that, take it up to the next level.
    If you have seen the Army of Two: 40th Day Mask Customizer…….well I think you need to do something like that. I don’t like to sound so insulting, but you know you guys have the strength to carry these tasks. Take it to the next level, A customizer.

  • Chump

    There should be Left 4 Dead and Left 4 Dead 2 skins.

  • exploding creeper

    there should be a skin creator like the pc and it should be free that would make more people play on Xbox 360 and then Microsoft would bring in more money.

  • _ANON_

    maybe instead of a skin editor you have a mix and match skin editor where you pick different parts of differing skins to make a unique one of your own

  • domi20000113

    ok im going back to the pc version there are more features ( i know they gonna uptade xbox360 version)but i can get free skins im not gonna wait weeks and then pay for it … to get 5 freakin skins or 1 i dont know

    Cuz Xbox can’t handle that much memory on tha hard drive

    This is how the console market works.
    And this wouldn’t work on PC because the hacking/modding community would bypass that and make their own server for skins.
    But because this is on a console, they don’t have the same opportunity.
    Also, as DLC is a norm on console, the consumers (you and me) doesn’t take this kind of things too hard.
