360 Minecraft to close in on PC version

Written by David Stellmack



Version 1.8 update to close the gap


While Xbox 360 Minecraft players continue to enjoy the game, it isn’t without issues. The biggest issue is the wide gap of differences between the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game. The gap will be narrowed with the release of the Adventure Update, or version 1.8, according to a number of sources.

The 1.8 update will add a variety of new features to the Xbox 360 version of the game. The biggest addition will be Creative Mode, which gives players invulnerability, infinite blocks, and the power of flight. Long-term, the developers would like the Xbox 360 version to mirror the PC version’s features and make it as close to the PC version as possible.

While developer 4J, who did the port of the Xbox 360 version, has a difficult job on their hands, we suspect that they will continue to try to find a way to add the PC version’s experiences to the Xbox 360 version as much as possible, but don’t expect it to happen overnight.
