Minecraft on Xbox is turning another year older, so we’re releasing the 4th Birthday Skin Pack as a free download for Xbox One and Xbox 360 editions, along with our three previous Birthday Skin Packs!
Microsoft and Mojang have exciting news to share! A whole new version of Minecraft is on its way. This time, it’s for Windows 10 – Microsoft’s new swanky operating system that’s due for release on July 29th.
Welcome back to the world of Minecraft, this time on the shiny new Xbox One. Everything has changed, the world is in stunning 4k and the textures are super photo realistic. Now wake up, who are we kidding, it’s Minecraft people.
Today, Microsoft announced that “Minecraft” will enter the next generation on Friday, Sept. 5 with the release of “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” (ESRB rating E10+).
BBC Worldwide and Microsoft announced today that the first “Doctor Who” character pack will be available for “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” in September.
Mojang, BioWare and Microsoft are incredibly excited to announce the up and coming availability of the first Mash-up pack add-on for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, in which worlds from other popular game franchises are fused into Minecraft’s iconic pixelated form.
Developed by 4J Studios and available on Xbox 360 starting Sept. 4 for 320 Microsoft Points ($3.99), the first Mash-up Pack will feature the popular Mass Effect franchise, allowing fans to play in the stunning recreation of the Mars Facility from Mass Effect 3 or create their own worlds with special Mass Effect textures and craft-able items. The Mash-up also includes themed menus and user interface, 36 pixel-perfect Mass Effect character skins and 22 music tracks from the Mass Effect 3 soundtrack.

According to my stats on raptr.com, I’ve put in 79 hours of gametime into Minecraft. To give you an idea of how crazy that is, that’s more play time than I’ve given, Saints Row the Third (71), Mass Effect 2 (56), Fable III (45), and Dead Rising 2 (40). I can’t fully explain what it is about this game that has its hooks in me but they are there and they are tugging away. For those who are brand new to Minecraft, the premise is to build and explore. Basically just keep digging in search of precious materials to construct buildings, buildings that can take you hours to weeks to build. The only real thing stopping a player from having any fun with this game is a lack of imagination and a will to build.
