    Hell Yeah! I’m most excited for Louis from L4D so far ;)

    yeah buddy!!!!!!

    I want the update, not skins D:

    • Amek34

      I agree, Where’s the update!? The game has been getting pretty dull and boring, and skins wont make the game fun again.

      • Kevin K.

        Why are you asking them? They don’t know when it is coming out. No one does. Do you know how much is in 1.8? I wouldn’t be surprised if it came out in October.

        • luffyowner2134

          Who cares they could have worked on it instead of the stupid skins but the dont want to bother

          • Diller45

            Do you know how easy it is to make a skin? They literally could have typed in (name of character) Minecraft skin on Google and imported it into the game.

          • http://twitter.com/WilliamRLBaker WilliamRLBaker

            oh so you mean they would take the time too type it into google find the file that someone else made and took the time to make…it does actually take some time to make a skin for minecraft and used that? illegally? like how all skins that feature characters notch and others do not own are used?

          • chicken

            they have to sign agreements or something to be able to put those characters on, coding a who skin pack takes a day or 2, oh and the artist have to make the skins themselves, so that takes about 3 days to confirm the quality and send it in.

          • http://twitter.com/WilliamRLBaker WilliamRLBaker

            that was my point they have to sign agreements to get these characters on not all are microsoft owned characters. so its not just go online find some skin packs push em onto minecraft 360 edition. Its find out who owns characters ask to put them on minecraft 360 edition get permission, create said skins then put em up.

          • Dark_Assassin223

            They want to make it them self’s so they actually do the work retard!!!

          • jeremy fisher

            No they could not.They have to make the skins themselves.That’s like saying i was going to make a game, so I search on Google video game characters and put them in the game.

          • http://twitter.com/JohnBowrey John Bowrey

            Its not hard to make the skins, I can make a semi-decent one in about 5-10 minutes.

            Why don’t you cry some more? Just wait like the rest of us! I think 4J are doing a fantastic job. They are really listening to the community. Do you really know how much work is involved in translating everything into a completely different programming language? You should be grateful our updates are even free!

          • lolololol

            To be perfectly honest, the PC already has these updates. And the game is still garbage.
            I pirated it, and use it just fine for free, I have multiple custom textures I don’t pay for (like the game)
            And it sucks, I’ve spent 5 hours, and built stupid things with red stone (OMG ELECTRICITY,)


          • Pyrotar

            Dude, gtfo, no one likes pirates, also, don’t comment on things related to something you don’t like. All you are doing is humiliating yourself.

          • Deleter

            Updates are free no matter what so .. you are pointless ;)

          • Joseph

            updates sure, but the updates for minecraft are what would normally be sold as dlc on most games. Everyone should be thankful that 4j and microsoft came to an agreement. I’m pretty sure the skin packs are the middle ground, microsoft gets money off of dlc while 4j gets to pump out updates without charging.

          • taj1994

            Since when was something that changed how the whole game works DLC? Stuff like map packs and skin packs are DLC, updates are not.

          • Frozen Skull

            Dude… DLC stands for Downloadable Content. Updates are content that you download. So, updates are DLC’s.

          • taj1994

            DLC doesn’t physically change the game in any way, it just adds optional stuff. Updates are bug fixes and completely new features that physically change the game.

          • Souless Gore

            DLC and updates dont change the game physically if you update a game its still that game if you download something its still that game DLC and updates change content therefore they are both DLC

          • nunya


          • taj1994

            Updates are always free to players…

          • Brett

            Actually, translating Java (PC Minecraft) into C# (Xbox Minecraft) is fairly easy because of the extensive similarities between the two languages.

          • Tesseractor

            Yeah, actually C#, though it sounds like it would be related to C or C++, has nothing to do with either. It’s nearly identical in syntax to Java.

          • http://twitter.com/RadzPrower Anthony Johns

            OMG, you do know that a skin is nothing more than an image file that is overlayed on the 3D model right? Hell, the monkeys at Microsoft could do that on their own without 4J Studios being involved aside from adding tags for the skins to reference in the code.

          • darthvetter13

            do you know how easy it is to make skin packs? they probably just get these skins from skinners they find on MCF and then work them in. they are definitely spending theyre time on 1.8.

          • Dark_Assassin223

            Are you a retard!!!! just let them do there job they are doing the best they can so stop being a pussy and wait!!!!!!

          • RichardDon

            Just stop it. Your replying to peoples comments without any idea what their posting and calling them out. “DarthVetter13″ was claiming that skins were easy to make (not because he wants them to make more, but) because “luffyowner2134″ claimed they were wasting time making skins when they should have been working on the game’s updates. Next time you think about commenting, please actually understand what is going on by reading the actually conversation fully. Also, work on your grammar and be professional enough to understand why you shouldn’t use some of the words you used and what they actually mean.



          • Dark_Assassin223

            well maybe you should stop complaining because they are doing the best they can so stop bitching

          • nunya

            smart man

          • 1995Broomy

            Actually I am glad they brought out skins because the 8 starter skins have started to look terrible. I know they could’ve spent time on updates but they am going to work on ‘Updates’ ‘skins’ ‘Textures’ and maybe ‘mods’

          • Casey

            It prob takes literally 1 day to do an entire skin pack with one guy working on it. They prob just take the ones made online and plug them in. Now a full scale update takes time with some delay for economic reasons

          • vb bvbv

            The jews at Microsoft are always looking for more ways to fill their pockets, and this is what they do: CHarge you money for a pack of skins that most people get for free on the internet, but a significantly lessened amount of them, and there isn’t even a way to make custom skins, but I doubt the 360 is capable of doing this. I’m going to guess thast MS is planning on releasing on selling a custom skin maker.

          • http://www.facebook.com/GazStudios Gaz Evans

            I heard on sources that, there is absolute, NO PLANS for a custom skin maker.

          • http://twitter.com/JohnBowrey John Bowrey

            Dude, its not hard to work on skins, hell they don’t even have to make them, they could just compile them. All the work involved in this pack is about 2 days of brainstorming what characters to put in, and what the skins will look like. So don’t blow your gasket, 1.8 is coming.

          • Nate VonGrimm

            They are working on both!
            They don’t ditch writing the 1.8.2 update to make skins do they?
            They obviously make teams to create both at the same time.
            Stop moaning and have patience.
            It was only a couple of weeks ago that 1.7.3 came out.

          • committreason

            I was going to point this out, but you got to it first. Also, whinging on about skins vs updated; let Mojang take the time they need to make the update work.

          • Manwithgas

            Skins take a mere two hours at least.

          • Unreal Ninja

            @ea112b20af243f914657614b3bc9ab3a:disqus i make my own skins they only take about 30 mins to 1 hour depending on your attention to detail

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002077762198 Ryan Thomas Stanley Patterson

            it doesnt take that long to get skins. i could do it in a day.

          • nunya

            hey some people like skin packs and may there still working on the update so STFU

        • Floyd Lavender

          Nope mid August to early September

          • Nate VonGrimm

            There is no confirmed date. August to early September is a guess by fans. It’s not confirmed. 1.8 has a lot more added. It’s a complete architecture change for Minecraft. Don’t expect it out as early as September.

          • http://twitter.com/Draknar95 kieran grant

            they said on twitter there trying there hardest to push 1.8 but due to its huge amount of content it might not even be out before December so (it will be out when its out 4j our only a group of like 6 people so it took about 2 months on pc and now we have to re-do those 2 months and more time for conversion)

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002077762198 Ryan Thomas Stanley Patterson

            thats a lot earlier then i expected. 1.8 does have a lot of content.

        • MCburke

          What i dont get is why they released it in such an early update

          • tgc

            Because all the noobs beds time to get used to the game it will never be as good as PC edition and most likely will never have tekkit

        • http://www.facebook.com/bryce.head.5 Bryce Richard Head

          they have monthly updates on xbox if you payed attention

      • http://twitter.com/DJCozzanator DJCozzanator

        i agree too give aus the 1.8.3 update

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002077762198 Ryan Thomas Stanley Patterson

          i think there was no 1.8.3 only 1.8.2.

          • minecraft

            i think there should be a disclaimer when you get the xbox version saying warning not as good as the pc version….

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001430293677 Oscar Daniel Benitez

            no shit the setting is different the pc use to be like this

        • taj1994

          Asking for the update won’t make it any faster… Even if it did, would you rather have an update to come out quickly and have alot of bugs, or would you rather have an update that takes awhile, but it has almost no bugs when it comes out?

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Adam-Doran/100000584164074 Adam Doran

            well it won’t mater whether or not they wait or release it I mean minecraft is really awesome in the fact they take forever to add updates and then soon after fix the many of many of bugs with them.

          • http://www.facebook.com/bodie.middleton Bodie James Middleton

          Those wont be for a while. But when they do.. I’m going to use the gloomiest ones. Unless they release a pokemon theme one. Oh god yes.

    • SnakeyBasher

      They said it numerous times. late August early October.

      • BendroHD

        They have never said that

        • http://twitter.com/JohnBowrey John Bowrey

          Ok then, the update is coming out in 2014, it will cost 280 ms points and you need to buy the PC edition for it to work. – Notch

    • Cyberkid100

      Well I guess you gotta do one thing..WAIT!!! The world doesn’t revolve around you!

      • nunya


    • Tim

      No joke, I’m ready for the game I was playing a year ago on PC. This is ridiculous. I don’t care if they have to re-do it. It’s already been done, so why is it taking so long to simply do it again?

      • Jesus, Kid

        No joke, programming shit from one language into another takes a little more time and effort than simply crying about it. Yes let’s just get them to rush the updates so that way instead of whining about how long it’s taking you can whine about how they should have spent more time instead of releasing a broken update. Freakin’ kids and their entitlement complexes.

      • Nate VonGrimm

        Because Minecraft on the PC is written in JAVA. 4J are re-writing the game into C++ so it will work on the Xbox 360. Do you know how hard that is?

        • http://www.facebook.com/david.decoster David DeCoster

          The shit is already made, it can’t be THAT hard to transfer it. It’s like 1995 graphics in blocks. How the hell hard could it be to add more content? I don’t buy this “it’s hard” B.S. I mean one person created the game, having a team of people update it shouldn’t be that difficult.

          • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000866575216 Anthony Storr

            Then you sir have never done any coding. It is hard to due. It takes along time for things to get coded for pc. Now they have to recode everything for xbox. Its like translating from English to Chinese. Even though the graphics may seem like nothing they are actually a lot. Take into account colors, textures, physics etc. and then sir you have alot of coding to redo.

          • taj1994

            I have only just started programming, and I know this well…

          • http://www.facebook.com/david.decoster David DeCoster

            Games that are a thousand times more complicated get updated more frequently than Minecraft. It shouldn’t take two months to “translate” a handful of in game items. They should be able to just remake it, the game isn’t complicated, it’s a very basic. It’s barely even a finished game.

          • SpeedyBoy235

            Why don’t you update it then?

          • http://www.facebook.com/david.decoster David DeCoster

            I could probably learn how to code and update it myself before they release the update

          • http://www.facebook.com/mbrubaker3 Michael Brubaker

            ok listen. i don’t want ur brain to explode when u hear this. listen and listen carefully. CODING ISN’T ALL ABOUT GRAPHICS. u got that, did i get it through ur thick skull? good. graphic is actually 1% of coding. animation about 9% physics for java about 15% content and reactions is 75% this would take about 5 months for java. now re-coding java into C++ will take about double the time. possible about a year. C++ is an insainly technical and difficult to program. and translating it from java just makes it worse. so don’t be a hard head and think about what ur saying. these games that are more technical were made with C++. so they already have a foundation to work on. 4j however does not. when they are coding a new update they are doing it from scratch. kinda like making a brand new game. so quite down and have patient for the update. i had to until is came out for the PC.

          • MrAliMac

            Well do it then dick, im sure it will be god-awful shitty if you do it

          • http://www.facebook.com/david.decoster David DeCoster

            I could rediscover electricity, reinvent computers, learn to code and recreate this entire game by myself before these wanks ever finish this update. What a joke of a programming team.

          • YouWishYouKnew

            @facebook-677775820:disqus: Here’s an idea jackass, quit playing the game!

          • MrAliMac

            Well let me explain it to you in normal terms: What 4J are doing is taking a large book and translating it into other language, a translation matrix doesn’t exist so they have to do it manually, try about learning other language without the English to C++ Directory, thats what 4J are doing, give them time they are doing it very quickly and brilliantly

    • http://twitter.com/DJCozzanator DJCozzanator

      what update do u want

    • Carbon Blood

      Every skin pack come out the same date the update comes.

      • RadialBlur

        How would you know we only have one skin pack

        • http://twitter.com/AzTeKb AzTeK Rain

          actully 2 summer arcade pack

          • taj1994

            That’s not really a “Skin Pack.” It’s more like 5 bonus skins. It also came out only one day after Skin Pack 1…

    • dave jones

      well said sir

    • jsmallz9

      dont we all

    • http://www.facebook.com/quinn.elsea.56 Quinn Elsea

      from august 15th to 15th of next month

    • p3ng1

      The updates take time. If you want to get an updated expeience why dont you try it out on the pc. I like the skins, expecially since theyre coming out between the updates. Think of them as a mini update.

    • xblversionsucksdick

      stfu and play the PC version…. 100X better :P

    • Anonymous

      They probably have somebody else working on the skins (ie: not the same people working on the update). People need to think before they say stuff like “work on the update not the skins”. Do you really think Jeb is the one that made those?

    • REnaud

      Yeah Skins are useless when you’re playing alone. Noone can see it

  • http://twitter.com/Sheldococo ZombieGuy

    I’m glad we didnt have to guess these, I’d have failed miserably

  • Austin8r117

    Make the cookie monster a skin or darth vader plz!!!!!!

    • ll MaGiiKz

      cookie monster skin would be the best

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

    Would like Skins like, Altair, Ezio, Sonic the Hedgehog, Miles Prower, Marcus Fenix, Dom Santiago, Borderlands 1&2 characters, Adam Jensen, Chell (Portal), Half Life and TF characters, Solid Snake (young), Grey Fox, Covenant Elite and more.

    Would say Mario, Luigi, Link and Zelda etc but Nintendo characters on an xbox game???, not gonna happen really is it?

    • jjbigjsmallJ

      what about the banjo and kazooie characters?

      • inhjok;l

        well the sonic racing it had banjo kazooie in it on xbox

      • ultraddtd

        They released a bunch of those in the first pack.

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

        Banjo is in skin pack 1 as Microsoft bought out Rare, the company that created Banjo

    • Kevin K.

      I have one thing to tell you. You know Zoey from L4D and Chell from Portal are the same person.

      • Luneth

        yup, Jen Taylor, she plays Zoey, Chell, glados, Alyx (HL2) and cortana

        • zagony

          actually, glados is played by elen mclain

        • Sierra

          You couldn’t be more wrong. Jen Taylor only plays Zoey and Cortana out of those people. Chell doesn’t speak either, and they aren’t the same person.

        • taj1994

          The voice actors for them are:

          Zoey – Jen Taylor
          Chell – None (doesn’t speak)
          GLaDOS – Ellen McLain
          Alyx Vance – Merle Dandridge
          Cortana – Jen Taylor

          Basically, you are partly right. Two of those five are played by Jen Taylor.

          • Luneth

            My bad, I thought Jen Taylor did play Alyx Vance and assumed that Valve just uses the same voice actor for GLaDOS.

            She does play Princess Peach in quite a few spinoff Mario games however.

          • Luneth

            My bad, I thought Jen Taylor did play Alyx Vance and assumed that Valve just uses the same voice actor for GLaDOS.

            She does play Princess Peach in quite a few spinoff Mario games however.

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

        Even if they are the same person which I still believe they are not, they are still 2 different skins.

    • http://www.facebook.com/branden.brown.9 Branden Brown

      why not banjo kazooie is on there

      • davidjay

        banjo is made by rare and xbox bought him so he wont be on nintendo no more

      • DJ

        Banjo is in Skin pack 1

    • BluberryBee

      I would love to have a Chell skin!!! and some HF2 skins would be sweet.

    • http://twitter.com/JohnBowrey John Bowrey

      Its mainly about licensing, they can’t use other companies copyright material without permission, and by permission I mean “royalty rights”

    • Quin

      Actually, Banjo Kazooie started out as a Nintendo game.. Guess what kind of skins we have in Skin Pack 1? That’s right, Banjo himself, his sister, the witch, the witches’ aid and Mumbo. I would love more Nintendo skins though, maybe throw in Ganondorf from Zelda :3

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

        Banjo may have started on a Nintendo console but that is irrelevant, Microsoft own RARE now and thus have any right to use Banjo and friends any way they like and in this case, Minecraft skins.

    If only they could let us use the skins we have on the PC game

    • http://twitter.com/JohnBowrey John Bowrey

      They are considering that, the only problems would be that it would mean no need for the skin packs, and that means Microsoft would be essentially “cheated” out of money. Bullshit I know but thats what a company is like.

      Considering they’re working on the 1.8 update and the skin packs aren’t mandatory! I don’t see why you are complaining.. :S

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre

      It’s not like your forced to buy them. I actually like the skin packs. I’m excited to hear what the other 40 are. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want the 1.8 update to. Just give them time and they’ll get it out when it’s ready.

    • Kaervas.

      play on the PC, get the ability to do such things.

    • musicman0917

      I have an idea, why don’t they link the two games together by Minecraft accounts. Then you can upload your skins to that. (They would have to go thru an approval process of course) Then download the skins onto the 360 version.

  • nnin


  • TheBirdKid97

    Batman, Bane, Joker, and cat woman!!!!

  • http://twitter.com/mecart El mecartistrónico

    Yeah, “Minecraftize your avatar” would be the best.

  • Truthful

    Kind of strange that I don’t really care about any of these skins in the 2nd pack so far and only liked a few in the first. Honestly they should have set up a site to make our own skins like the PC version because seriously I’m tired of all these skins from games I don’t care about! Like Viva Pinata and Perfect Dark…. Really?! How about some more Original skins? Those were good!

  • Josh J. The Blue Dragon

    I would like to make my own, but I would like to see a Marvel, or DC universe skin pack.

  • Swoffer

    haha I love it! I hope some superheros make it on this. You guys should actually make a superhero skin pack. With everyone in it!!!

    Liking Joanna Dark, be sweet if they added new random ass skins like Rick Grimes from the Walking Dead, or some Mass Effect Characters prob like Shep, Garrus, Thane, Liara, the most distinguishable ones. Maybe War from Darksiders, or Wesker from Resident Evil. Idk would be nice to see some actual cool characters over a bunch of arcade game toon skins and stuff.

  • Gibson

    Cookie Monster is the most over used skin on Minecraft PC. I say they should add Niko Bellic and Commander Shephard as well as Sgt Johnson.

  • http://www.facebook.com/robert.roberge.54 Robert Roberge

    no way. I would like texture packs instead.

  • http://www.facebook.com/eric.texeira.9 Eric Texeira

    I doubt they will be able to work with custom skins like they have to ability to do on PC. However the only thing I really could care about them doing as releasing some “rent-a-servers” so my friends can play on my world when I’m not on or vice versa. Don’t tell me Xbox doesn’t have the capability to do that because Battlefield 3 accomplished it.

  • Unkill

    Scorpion skin nuff said


    would be cool if they made mortal kombat skins

    the update will come out late august/september

  • steelers202

    Please add cookie monster that would be amazing I would buy it just for that

  • http://www.facebook.com/JordanAdonai Jordan TheBatman Nicholson

    As someone mentioned before, a Batman skin would be nice (possibly themed around TDKR ie Batman, Robin, Bane, Alfred etc)

  • BluberryBee

    I wish they would add some skins from Team Fortress 2.

  • M3X1CAN

    I want to see some mortal kombat kharacters. Sub-Zero, scorpion, lui kang, kitana, mileena, reptile etc. or batman skins also.

    Wow, what a bunch of baby’s!!! Maybe ur life shouldn’t revolve around Minecraft or any games for that matter. But I like the CD skin best. Stay up guys!!!

  • Minecraft Man 21

    Update first. Skins after. The update is more important

    • taj1994

      The skins take almost no time to make, so it’s something that they can give to the players between updates.

  • meischoice

    The dude on the far left looks like Cecil from Final Fantasy 4, and the guy in the middle looks like Cid from Final Fantasy 7

    • Anonymous

      the guy in the middle is from Gears of War

  • kevow

    rather then waste your time on skin packs that look shyt, why dont you just accelerate your progression on the 1.8 update instead?

  • billbadill

    here would be different groups some on skin some on updates

  • Dick

    you should add Batman he is boss

  • JewSauce

    Lol that is ridiculous you actually have to pay for these shitty skins wow they really couldn’t have made it so people could make there own skins what a joke

    • Joseph Z

      Yeah I know, we should have everything for free shouldn’t we. I mean, we’re totally entitled! It’s not like 4J is doing an amazing job recoding the game for us, and are giving them to us pro bono and all.

  • Deezy

    Late August early september

  • Dante


  • Nybears


  • Wantlesstrack

    People please understand that apart from the actual game release update 1.8 is the largest update, it has endermen, I believe magma cubes, silverfish, and blazes. Not just new mobs but it adds many new blocks, also naturally spawning ravines, nether fortresses, and I believe strongholds, so if you would please be patient I’m sure 4j could use the time that they used answering your questions to work on the game. P.S. if you really want to play 1.8 go to the pc version.

  • Grimmjow

    Hell yeah to a Baird skin pack!!!!

  • SkIllz Xepots

    What about Red Dead Skins?

  • http://www.facebook.com/alex.trudeau2 Alex David Trudeau

    Is there ever going to be updates for texture packs?

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre


  • hashhy

    update asap for get the skins idc about those 1.8.2 is all i want and need.

  • craftofwar3

    they should add onyx guard or dizzy from gears of war 3

  • K2LU

    If not late August or early October, it could possibly come out in mid-September, im just guessing on that one. But the skin id really like to have is Conker! Now that be some funny sh*t to look at on minecraft lol.

  • Happybandaid

    It’s funny, because I’ve seen countless way, way better skins by 14 year olds on Planetminecraft. XD

  • Flamethefox101

    How about Sonic the Hedgehog, or Miles Prower?

  • SuperGamer16

    they should make some Assassins Creed character skins. it is a popular game.

  • http://twitter.com/Jonskate Jon galvin

    i want skins the skins and the update

  • sammy.e.b

    JUST WAIT omg the skins and update will be great if you don’t like it go somewhere else and b**ch about it there doing the best they can go and help your friends maps get them stuff like diamond thats what I’m doing

  • that guy

    I would like a naked snake skin and also more furry skins would be nice :3

  • http://www.facebook.com/norton19 Graham Norton

    some texture packs would be nice priced at 40 points a pack

      it would be cool if we had texture packs but if they do come out i hope there free or at least have a preview option

  • mmmmmm


  • http://twitter.com/AdeptGaming14 Ethan Salmon

    id like more halo skins, sonic skins, a superman skin, marvel skins and some dragonballz skins that would be great

  • http://twitter.com/Cetan1217 cetan perez

    they should make skyrim themes

  • richard

    i see a flashback coming up.. 1.0.0 for xbox at mnecon paris.

  • Tim

    Forget ANOTHER skin pack, let’s get some TEXTURE PACKS!!

  • Austin

    I’m sad that so many people are bitching about 1.8. They are translating the update to a different programming language. I want the update too but they will tell us when it’s about to come out.

  • Mike

    Im srry 4j I think u guys do a great job on minecraft but ived been asking my friends and random people on xbox if they still have fun on minecraft but all of them say that they got bored of it cuz theres no updates trust me guys people love skins and all but the thing that they want the most is the updates :/ ooo yea one question why cant u do mods on the xbox version u guys should authorize that its more fun! :)

  • Roy

    1: Y cant we make our old skins like the PC version
    2: I bought MCXE because I thought it would be like PC but wasn’t
    3: Really hate how we don’t have In-Game options instead we have to not/save and exit just 2 change difficulty
    4: The Skins aren’t really exciting just a waist of Microsoft points
    5: Wouldn’t it make more sense to just update it to 1.3.1 instead 1 by 1

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre

      1. I think that they’ve already said there would be to many legal issues from making your own skin.
      2. No PC game is exactly like it’s console port.
      3. I don’t think the Xbox port can handle those options. Maybe not yet.
      4. I actually like the skins and look forward to each skin pack.
      5. The 1.3.1 update just came out on the PC. Do you realize how long it would be before they would be able to get it out one the Xbox. I prefer having each update like this.

    • arrows in my pants

      DUDE, it’s only 160 ms points. What else were you going to buy, clothes for your avatar?Now that’s a waste.Oh and after the adventure update they said they would skip all the way to 1.3.1 that will probably take a long time.

  • VaginaDestroyer

    if only they were half as quick with the free updates than with the ones that cost money… and add absolutely nothing to the game >__>

  • Creeper_Joe

    I want some common people skins like builders, farmers, and business men and other normal skins.

    • taj1994

      What’s not normal about Steve?

      • Jake

        he never said Steve wasnt normal

  • xiim s0 sWaGx

    Amek34 You have such a good point so what we have Pistons we want the Update. Creative Mode Enderman lets go already. Who agrees with me?

  • fisss

    Holy shit is that Bill from L4D? give us Franics also and ill be happy haha, thats amazing.

  • Kayne H

    I’m pretty excited about the skins but i really want the update… it would at least be good if 4j told us how much work they’ve gotten done on 1.8. the skins are still nice though, been waiting for these.

  • http://www.facebook.com/alice.marie.james Alice Marie James

    YES! Joanna Dark FTW! Also Zoey from Left 4 Dead will be super cool.

  • Marcus

    Those are ok skins

  • Roman

    Just shut the hell up and wait for the update like everyone else, people who are impacient dont deserve an update. 4J studios are doing a brilliant job by seving us free updates.There is no point in complaining to XBLA because they dont know when it is going to be released. basicly, they are giving us skin pack while we wait.

    • http://www.facebook.com/david.decoster David DeCoster

      They should stop taking so many naps in the office all day and actually work on releasing the update for the game. All updates on X-Box are free, so I’m not impressed by that.

  • Annonymos

    It willl be released somewhere between now and September 15, is a romour that has been going around. Personally, I believe it will be closer to September 15th than now.

    • http://twitter.com/Google_Gravity Mike

      are you talking bout the update right?

  • johnny gat2

    dovahkiin from skyrim!

  • FaCeG0By3By3

    Nooooooo not skins!!!!! UPDATE!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • connor

    Texture packs r what im looking for, but 4j is doing nice job withe the skins

  • http://twitter.com/adamkern1 adam kern

    wow can people stop arguing about the skin pack. some people like the skins they put in the game like me and I like a wide verity of skins to show my friends. I want the update to come out too but I’ll just have to wait like everyone else. I’m pretty sure there working on the update right now and if its like the pc and like they say its going to be it’s going to take awhile but when it comes out the game will be closer to the pc update. Textures and mods would be good to but I don’t know when they would come out but in till everything is out Ill have fun in my world with the 1st skin pack the Soa skin pack Pistons and all the other cool stuff they put in the game.

  • connor

    4j needs to add the southpark crew+ butters and add assassins creed skins


      I would love AC skins

  • connor

    And they need to add were u can play with pc gamers and add tekkit

    • http://twitter.com/JohnBowrey John Bowrey

      Its a bit more complicated than that.

  • http://twitter.com/C4MB0M C4MB0 MC

    I would like 2 change my skin on minecraft xbox ( to a slime man)

  • minecraft lover

    I want both so hurry up

  • SnipingHawk98

    i like the skins but they should do Mod(Tekkit) or texture pack

  • SnipingHawk98

    ok i have an idea if you go to the main menu there should be something call skin creator its free but you pay 10-20microsoft points to make you own skin there would be 3 girl default skins and 3 boy default skin then you edit them then no one would complain about there own skins now would they.Put the top 5 texture then but them for 100microsoft points for all 5 then add things like tekkit and hunger games in then everyone would be happy and stilll put the skin if people cant make skins so theres pre-made skins for them like above be you must know what we want so there you have it :) reply if you agree

  • Baird

    Yay Baird

  • A Ghost Buster

    I would like GhostBuster skins too but these are cool

  • wolflover6m

    When can we make our own skins?


      Honestly I dont think the ability to make your own skins will ever be in xbox minecraft because if we could there would be no point in having skin packs.

      • taj1994


  • 5190ryan

    i cant wait for 1.8

  • Creeper_Joe

    Mass Effect skins?

  • RadialBlur

    Pedobear Skin

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre

      That would be amazing, but sadly, that will never happen.

  • thetgdcnch

    they release the updates for free so these skin packs help pay for the employees

  • joe

    wow all i see is people crying about the update is not coming out fast if you dont like it dont play it! I believe 4j and mojang are doing a fantastic job take your time guys to make the next update less glitchy and buggy well iam off to make more floor traps lol.

  • Jet Laserman

    How the heck did they find that much iron on the gargamel map?

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre

      Duplication glitch

  • Red

    Why not just let us make our own skins like on PC? And I do agree with wanting an update, the game’s becoming dull and I’ve already done nearly everything you can in the game.

  • P3d0x

    Does it costs MP [Microsoft Points]

    • taj1994

      It will probably be the same price as Skin Pack 1, which was 160 Microsoft Points (about $2).

  • Owen123454

    Right, If you want to make a Skinpack everyone will enjoy, stop making packs with skins of characters lots of people havent even heard off make a pack with famous YouTubers, HoneyDew, Xephos, SynHD, Captain Sparkles etc etc!!

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre

      There are way more people who have played these games then people who have ever heard of these people.

  • http://twitter.com/UKRebelxxx Luke Smith

    4j tweeted this earlier, ‘
    We’re working on the 1.8.2 update, and deciding what to bring forward from 1.9 and beyond. Many weeks of work to do yet, so not out soon’

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre

      There’s no use in trying to tell us. These children, who know nothing about game programming, are not going to stop complaining until they get their precious updates.

  • Austen

    If they would have programmed it properly in the first place it would work on all machines with very little porting.

    • Austen

      I think they’re lucky programmers to make a game that turned out to be so popular. Their coding seems to be shit as my game crashes all of the time and I have a high end gaming laptop.

    • taj1994

      It was programmed “properly.” Java is the programming language that Notch is comfortable with, so that’s what he used. It needs to be translated so that it will work on the Xbox 360.

  • Magictieguy7

    We need a batman :P

  • http://www.facebook.com/dylan.poe.37 Dylan Poe

    No kidding. I know the 1.8 update has alot jammed packed into it, but ever since the update for pistons and such slimes are impossible to find and i can never find enough clay to build a awesome brick home. Plus you already knew about the item copying glitch cause that was removed… If anything i think just release a partial update giving us creative mode. Thats what ive been waiting on this whole time. Not comparing this to a cruddy knock off but total miner hade creative mode since it came out. It knew the limited amount of resources you could find wasnt enough to go insane with. I say quit working on non important skin packs at the moment. They may be nice but they dont change up the game in anyway unless there could be some kind of voice acting?

  • Tender

    imho, those skins are pretty bad looking.

  • SKK329

    I love how the xbox people are complaining xD be grateful you got Minecraft at all.. In my opinion it should’ve stayed a PC/Mac game it has no business being on a console. People don’t know how to appreciate anything anymore..

  • Jason

    They gonna take so long for the new update, hardly anyone is gonna even care. Ive moved on playin silent hill hd orange box then halo4 will be out by then. So theyve lost a fan

    Get Alex Mercer in there maybe?

  • http://twitter.com/Louis_Reinders Louis Reinders

    Why would you even pay for skins? My Idea is that you can download a skin creation add-onn when you bought the game and you can make skins and upload them onto a database like minecraftskins.net, but only for xbox and you can download them there. What do you think?

  • p0ker14

    why dont they put skins in the game that people actually would want… and not just shit

  • Herobrine

    We don’t want skin packs we want skin UPLOADS
    (and 1.3)

  • http://www.facebook.com/NINJAMATOR Alex Hayward

    why cant we make our own skins and upload them to a gallery so other people can use them.

  • Coolboy

    You should add the Honeydew skin! :PP


    I think instead of having a skin of herobrine, they should add the REAL herobrine. Minecraft is starting to get a little dull and having herobrine in there will kinda shake things up a bit. Does anyone else think that would be epic?

    • http://twitter.com/TheInfectedHunt Matthew Massacre

      Trust me.. Herobrine is in the Xbox version.. or atleast he used to be.

  • ILemonAid

    Why cant they just release a skin creater?!?!


      that would take away the point of having skin packs. i know it sucks but its not like 4J’s just sitting around doing nothing

    • MrAliMac

      because then mircosoft won’t earn a lot of revenue and people might make “Inappropriate” Skins

  • ILemonAid

    Why cant they just release a skin creater?!?!

  • mobilemadman

    Jeez, people. The update will be out when they are finished. Skins are simple. Someone made these skins in a DAY probably, just to keep you entertained while they are working on the update. Please, if you want to cry about something to someone, go to a politician. THEY are the ones who aren’t doing anything. Let the Minecraft team work.

  • Lolmad

    Get the game on a pc?

    I have a degree in vidogame programming and design, and honestly it’s not nearly as hard to program this as you retards make it sound, you have to stop and remember, there were 5 diffrent knocked off versions of minecraft on xbox over a year ago… If they can do it that fast explain why Mojang can’t. Also They are converting from Java to XNA not C++ XNA is a fully functional engine so most of the ground work is already done.

  • ian

    I personnaly like the pc version better, but then my computer can run skyrim.. so thast why :/

  • Malevion

    lol @ all the tards who think that developer’s who write the update code are the ones making skin packs…..you guys think a developer that is working on the update conversion stops what he is doing to create skins? how stupid can you be? Be glad you have new skins and let the developer’s do their jobs while the graphic guys do their jobs…two completely unrelated events and somehow you idiots still get them confused…

  • CloudHikary

    Minecraft Xbox Needs a Skin editor / Texture Editor. Not this

  • http://www.facebook.com/kevin.welge.1 Kevin Welge

    Maybe they are making the jump to 1.0.0 and skipping 1.8 because 1.8 was part 1 of the adventure update and 1.0.0 was part 2.

  • Anonymous

    PC version is on full build 1.3, you mad?

  • ARX160

    Looks awesome. You guys just need to be working on the satisfaction of all of your other players that love Minecraft by doing your updates. Anyway, love it! Good job Mojang! :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001767169516 Jose Lopez

    Guys you have to wait for the update. It took at least 3 months on the pc version. It will probaly come out around October or maybe less. So just calm down and be patient.

  • Akadoragon

    Awesome..always wanted to get a skin pack i still cant pay for -.-

  • Assassins rule

    Put in assassins creed skins

  • octagonred

    i think the new update will come in mid august or early semptember. because if you paid attention to all the preformance enhancements alot of them were brought forward from 1.8 so all they would have to add is the 1.8 new blocks and other stuff

  • lol

    instead of skin packs they should just give us a chance to make our own skins

    look at the end of the day all update being so far behind is their own fault and probally a price thing you see XAML Which is probally what they coded the Xbox version in as its the main platform for xbox games ect is a horiable language EXCEPT java which it the platform the PC Version is build can be converted TO XAML with ease the only reason I can see for them not doing this is because of the networking system that xbox live use making the servers for online play harder to control without a terminal ie that little black or white box when you run your servers but this could technically be fixed by 1.3 updated to the comuter version as the multiplayer engine has been put into the single player world for lan anyway soo they could take that code and just import a net socket of some kind and host from the xbox console as a background process but there we go these people build one of the most advance gaming envirment systems in the world and wont do this and why because noch is not making :@ its been handed over to some programing company no one has ever heard of :@

    sorry for spelling on phone not helpful :P

    does it matter 1.8 was the end of beta you are asking for alot of content very quick i will be surpised if we get it in mid september
    rhis is what was added/changed

    Changes in the Beta 1.8 Adventure UpdateNew Mobs.EndermanSilverfishCave SpidersNew BlocksStone BrickStone Brick SlabsStone Brick StairsBrick Slabs and Brick StairsFence GatesGlass PanesIron BarsMelonsNew Creative game mode.New features in the terrain generator.Optionally generated structuresNPC VillagesStrongholdsAbandoned Mine ShaftsRavinesNew, fractal-based biome code; added and removed some biomes while making all of them more vast than before.Rivers flowing through/in between biomes.Ocean Biomes, that are deeper and much more vast than before.Mountain biomeSwampSnow in Taiga and Tundra biomes do not generate for technical reasons. They return in Minecaft 1.0.New ocean floor; random mix of sand, dirt, and clay.Because of this, clay is much more common.New combat Mechanics.Hold-to-charge bows.Critical hits.Players can parry with a sword by holding Right MouseHostile mobs perform attack animations.Mobs killed by players drop tiny flashing Experience Orbs that add to your experience bar.New Food System.There is now a food meter.Food no longer heals directly but indirectly: if the food meter is above 80%, heals about every 5 seconds.All food (except Mushroom Stew) are now stackable.Food takes 1.6 seconds to consume, accompanied with an animation.5 new food items.Melon Slices.Raw Chicken.Raw Beef.Cooked Chicken.Steak, which has Cooked Porkchop’s old texture. Cooked Porkchops’ new texture is a tan shade of the same sprite.Eating Raw Chicken or Rotten Flesh has a chance to give the playerfood poisoning.New seeds for farming: pumpkin seeds and melon seeds that producePumpkins and Melons respectively.A new achievement: “Kill a skeleton with an arrow at 50 meters”.Added SprintingMob changesPassive mobs will randomly flee if attacked by the player or other mobs (such as Wolves).Zombies drop Rotten Flesh instead of Feathers.The snout on pigs now protrude from their head.Skeletons now hold full-size bows.Player-to-mob damage decreased by half a heart.Arrows that hit a mob visually “stick” into the mob rather than just disappear.Skeleton arrows originate from about their eyes to the bow, instead of above the head.Animals no longer despawn which makes it possible to capture them.Shears can now collect Tall Grass and the new VineNew improved lightingDay/night cycles no longer require chunk updates and is a smooth transitionThe lighting on a block is given a tint based on the most prominent source of lightRedish from Non-sunlight light sourcesBlue from MoonlightTotal darkness keeps the same black tintSunlight gives the same white tintNon-sky based light now gives a very subtle ‘flicker’.Main Menu/Options changesThe Main Menu’s background is now an animated scene.The version tag is now displayed on the bottom-left rather than the top-leftNew sliders for Field of View and Brightness4 new entries in control list”Attack”, “Use Item”, and “Pick Block” can now be remapped.Player list in SMP, defaults to Tab ↹.The ‘Multiplayer join screen’ has been improved, mainly with a server list.New texture for Moss Stone to match Cobblestone’s.Improved sunrise and sunset.Clouds change color during sunrise and sunset to match the sky color.Horizon, specifically haze changes color more vividly during sunset and sunrise.New particle effects.Performing a critical hit on any mob will cause ‘sparks’ to fly.Explosion particles are now shockwaves instead of smoke.Tiny stationary bubble particles can be seen when underwater.Fog is now thicker and darker deep underground, and gives off particles. Due to this, the void appears black.Changes with debug-view (F3)Mobs are no longer visibly labeled with their entity IDThe world’s numeric seed is displayed in a field below player position.Changing fog by hotkey now requires debug-view to be open in addition with pressing F.⇧ Shift+Clicking the output item in a crafting square will craft all the items at once, and automatically places them in the inventory.The version tag appears in-game again.User-placed leaf blocks no longer decay.Cloud height raised to the top of the map, so clouds can no longer phase through blocks.Cloud movement syncs with the game’s time.Rain and snow both render fasterArmor bar moved to above hearts, due to food bar.Both Wooden and Stone pressure plates can now be placed on fences.Improved chest model with a 3D lock.Players with the OP position on a server can switch back and forth between survival and creative mode.[4]The game’s coding now allows for mods to more easily change the(map) height.Holding the left mouse button with a weapon will now only swing once.Holding the right mouse button to place blocks is slightly slower than before.Bug Fixes:The ⇧ Shift+Click crash bug from beta 1.8pre2 is fixed.Fixed Redstone circuits not working after /time set x glitch is now fixed in SMP.Destroying boats and minecarts now creates particles.Ghast attack sounds are fixed in SMP.The Far Lands had been removed; there is now only ocean.[5]New bugs:There is a memory leak mainly occurring on Linux 32 bit.The destruction animation for chests is missing.Lighting persists in water even after the light source is removed.Experience orbs when dropped don’t drop in a stack like items do, so when a player dies when they have a large number of experience, each orb has to be processed individually. This will cause a high amount of lag, especially for SMP servers.Double chests placed before beta 1.8 on multiplayer servers all appear to players to be facing the same direction, even when they should be rotated by 90 degrees.The Item Selection screen in the new Creative game mode is missing pine and birch leaves, tall grass, double slabs, monster spawner, snow cover, and both huge mushroom blocks.NPC villages occasionally spawn over partial water areas and ‘float’

    1. These are two different coding languages and with only six people it would take a long time to update. 2. Conker(conker’s bad fur day), walter (fable 3), Sgt. Johnson (halo), Makerov (MW3) Price (MW3) Soap (MW3) Dragonborn (skyrim) Vault Boy (Fallout 3) Fudgehog (Viva Pinata), anyone.

  • http://www.facebook.com/TheChief71 Nick Savage

    1.8 update… PC edition has Enderman, Silverfish, the Hunger bar, the Experience bar, and a lot more. So I think they might add most of the features from 1.8 update. The thing I’m looking forward to? TEXTURE PACKS AND CREATIVE MODE!!!

  • Marra

    is that Bill from left 4 dead?

  • Stefanie

    wrrm kun je dit niet meer spelen

  • Tempestdragon

    I’m glad their coming out with some skin packs, the originals were quickly getting old, and the lack of ability to choose your skin was terrible.

    I’d love to see them come out with some HD texture packs as well, such as DokuCraft, Affinity-HD or some of the other popular HD texture packs.

    Don’t get me wrong I can’t wait for the next update and hope it gets here sooner rather than later but I also don’t want it to be buggy and crashing my game every few minutes because it was rushed too quickly.

    The more sales they get from Minecraft and it’s DLC they will see theirs a huge interest in this game and should hopefully be motivated to continue bringing out great updates to the game and continue supporting it on the Xbox.

  • karlos123vrs

    update is this friday

    I Wish They Could Make It So You Make Your Own Skin On XBLA Or Be Able To Transfer PC Skins .

  • trollfacelol

  • http://www.facebook.com/victor.ferreira.188478 Victor Ferreira

    it should cost 140 points because the last one cost 160 so i can buy both with 300 i was pissed off why not just make it 150 each

  • Geo321

    you should put a naruto skin pack or dbz skin pack

  • http://www.facebook.com/jvir.stadler Jvir Stadler

    I thought you were going to release a thing that lets you make your own skin. and, no offense, but skins are free on the PC, so shouldn’t they be free on XBLA minecraft. (I don’t want to pay $2 eaach time a skin pack comes out just so I can play as Pretztail, or Hudson.

  • http://www.facebook.com/erika.watts.545 Erika Watts

    There’s items already programmed into the game that you can’t physically get yet. So I’m gonna take a guess and say they’ve been slowly adding stuff. (Did the cloning glitch and it sometimes makes the glitched piece look like something else)

  • http://www.facebook.com/patryk.rys.90 Patryk Ryś

    Nice skins really nice job

  • http://www.facebook.com/taeshon.mitchell Taeshon Nofearz Mitchell

    we need the adventure update cus most of us have done everything minecraft has to offer and the pc version is 10x better and it seems like you care about the pc version more than the xbox and its not fair

  • Tana

    hey i heard that on the next update you guys are putting creative mode on there. well i dont think that you guys should do that because the game is minecraft, if you get what ever you want whenever you want then that just takes out the entire meaning of the game. so if you guys read this could you guys please not put in creative mode. instead just take some of the stuff that is on PC and put it on XBox like enchanting and lillypads and other stuff. please and thank you

  • http://twitter.com/RyanHackzack CoolKingLOL

    Omg! Wow Please come faster!!!! Creative mode selling? or is it gonna be in the game?
