Minecraft Comes to Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 version of indie build ’em up Minecraft has been released on the Live Arcade, and is already gathering rave reviews.

The most famous indie game of recent years, Minecraft has attained a rabid cult following. And now it has been opened-up to a more mainstream audience with the release of the Xbox 360 edition. It is available now from Xbox Live Arcade for 1600 points, equating to around £13.
Minecraft for Xbox 360 retains the basic play style as the hit PC edition. You wander around a block-based world, building stuff and avoiding the nasties that roam the land when the sun goes down. It may sound simple, but it has hooked-in millions since it first launched in 2009 thanks to its highly creative bent.

The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft is a bit more streamlined than the PC version, making building things easier, and providing you with a much-improved map. Fans may accuse the game of being dumbed-down for the console crowd, but it should ensure the game gets on with the Xbox 360 controller.

The game has already received many positive reviews from the gaming press, and is current riding high on player approval too – with well over 100,000 user reviews and an average topping four stars. This is great news for the Minecraft “brand”, after the Android version got a rather lukewarm reception last year. Already had a go? Let us know what you think.

Minecraft was originally designed by now-gaming-celebrity Markus “Notch” Persson, co-founder of developer Mojang. However, the Xbox 360 version was handled by 4J Studios, which has previously worked on high-profile ports such as the PS3 edition of The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion and the XBLA edition of shooter Perfect Dark.
