With the upcoming release of the Minecraft: PlayStation 4 and Minecraft Xbox One Edition, Minecraft Xbox 360 has not spent time in the spotlight as much as fans are used to but it appears that Minecraft Xbox 360 getting new patches is not over yet.
4J Studios recently celebrated Minecraft Xbox 360's Xbox Live Indie Arcade second debut anniversary, offering a pair of Birthday Skin Packs to anyone who wishes to obtain new skins for the original console Minecraft port. Now, it appears that the recent talk of Minecraft Xbox 360 Halo Mash-Up Pack was just the precursor to another big coup for the Xbox fans - early delivery of the Minecraft Xbox 360 Title Update 16.
Although it has been reported repeatedly that Minecraft will have same release for both platforms, this is already the second time that Minecraft Xbox 360 has received new patch ahead of its PlayStation counterpart.
Minecraft Xbox 360 fans will get the latest batch of the bug fixes this month, which will be more than a week ahead of the PlayStation 3 fans. Latest word from Sony suggests that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 v1.06 will not be available for download until May 28. On the other side, it is possible that the extra review time is the result of an expanded fix list, especially that 4J Studios has yet to deliver official patch notes for the update.
The delay is hardly an indication of what will happen throughout the rest of Minecraft Xbox 360 and Minecraft: PlayStation 3's life cycles.
Here's the complete list of changes from Minecraft Xbox 360 Update 16 lifted from Minecraft Forum Web site.
