Minecraft Title Update 10 Will Be All Bug Fixes


Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition’s latest TU9 Update certainly didn’t go down well when it is currently a broken mess that fans of the game had waited a long time to get hold of. It also introduced a pesky fail to load saved games bug and proves that perhaps sometimes the wait is never always worth it.

The next update which is currently in certification should be dropping out on the Xbox LIVE platform quite soon – no official date has been given, but when that all important pop-up screen appears – accept the update!

The list of Update 10 bug fixes:

  • Fix for Silver LIVE profiles getting an error message on loading a save
  • Fix for lighting bug causing unlit areas even when light sources were placed in the these areas
  • Fixed slowdown caused by explosions (TNT and Creepers)
  • Fixed frame rate slowdown in The End being experienced by some players until the Endercrystals were destroyed
  • Fixed crash when placing lots of Item Frames with Maps inside
  • Fixed collision box issue at the top of Ladders
  • Fixed issues with animals taking damage randomly, or falling through the wooden planks floors
  • Made Dispenser suck water/lava back into an empty bucket
  • Fix for Potion Bottles being launched from a Dispenser
  • Enabled placing Pressure Plates on Nether Fence
  • Fixed an issue with Fire Charges sticking at the edge of the world
  • Change to not be able to place more than the maximum amount of Paintings/Item Frames, rather than removing previously placed ones
  • Stop players from interacting with Item Frames and Paintings when ‘Can Build and Mine’ is disabled
  • Fixed the Custom Skin Animation setting not working
  • Play the correct sound on hitting the Enderdragon

Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition Heading For Retail


Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition which is currently available for download on the Xbox LIVE Arcade is soon to hit retailers next month in the US. If you’re not one of the five million gamers who downloaded and contributed to the worldwide success of the title from 4J Studios, then maybe some retail therapy is in order?

We rated Minecraft 10/10 in our review last year:

In a console gaming world that often faces accusations of lacking invention and innovation we now have Minecraft, a game that can be whatever you choose to make it and that alone is something very, very special indeed.

The upcoming retail edition will include all previous updates and the long awaited TU9 patch which is currently in bug-testing before hitting Xbox LIVE.

If the retail version comes to Europe – we’ll be sure to let all of you Europeans known in due course…
