Sorry folks, the boxed copy of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition won’t be hitting shelves until June – and the reason is simple. The game just keeps changing too quickly, and the retail market isn’t quite sure how to keep up.
FYI: In order to include the very latest content, the retail version for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has been delayed until June 4 (US)
At this stage, there’s been no announcement about just what this “very latest content” will include, but here’s hoping it’s worth delaying the game for more than a month. (The retail edition of Minecraft was intended to release on April 30th.)
The change is unlikely to be a major drama for Mojang or Xbox – the online version of Minecraft has sold more than six million units since launch, described as a “system seller” for the Xbox 360 console.
