Minecraft celebrates 1st birthday on Xbox 360

Can you believe it’s been a year since Minecraft arrived on the Xbox 360? Fortunately for us, developer 4J Studios has a calendar, and wasn’t about to let the occasion slip past without a celebration.

First off, there’s the Battle & Beast Skin Pack, which (unsurprisingly) adds additional warriors and animal looks to your game, and will set you back 160 MS Points. (Highlights include a tuxedo-clad Enderman mob, by the way.)

Then, we have the Minecraft 1st Birthday Skins Pack, which is completely free! It’s a bunch of happy little models with party hats and costumes, including a Creeper mask, a wrapped present, and what looks like a playable Herobrine.

Happy Birthday, Minecraft 360!

Plus! If that all wasn’t exciting enough, 4J and Mojang have also submitted the latest update for the game, due out “soon”. TU11 is a small update, but it fixes a bunch of super-annoying bugs.


  • Fix for explosion lag issue on clients in an online game.
  • Fix to remove any Fireballs hanging in the air in a save game.
  • Fix to only show the spawn limit message to the player attempting to spawn something.
  • Fixed the terrain mipmaps to have the updated version of the gravel texture in them.
  • Fix for the spawn limit overrun when shearing or breeding Mooshrooms
  • Increased the limit for Paintings/Item Frames, Villagers, and Snow Golems in a world.
  • Display a message when the maximum Paintings/Item Frames are reached.
  • Display a message when the user tries to put an animal in Love Mode when the spawn limits have been reached.
  • Display a message when the user tries to spawn an enemy from a Spawn Egg in Peaceful mode.
  • Reduced Ghast sound volume

We’re not quite sure when the update will land, but if you’re a fan, chances are you’re all over this one anyway. Happy birthday!
