Microsoft has delayed the release of the retail disc version of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. The game was previously scheduled to hit stores on April 30, but has been pushed back to add in “the very latest content.”
FYI: In order to include the very latest content, the retail version for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has been delayed until June 4 (US)

The “very latest content” likely includes the upcoming “Title Update 10,” which will fix most of the bugs introduced in “Title Update 9.” With the delay, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will now be available in stores on June 4.
4J Studios has revealed that Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition‘s Title Update 9, which includes “The End,” has passed certification and will be available this Friday, April 5:
TU9 has passed Cert testing! The Microsoft LIVE team has scheduled the TU9 roll out for Friday 5th April. The End is nigh :)

A disc-based, retail version of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, which will also include Title Update 9, will be available in stores on April 30.
The meteoric rise of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has become the stuff of legend. The PC version was nothing short of a phenomenon, but I’m not sure anyone expected the game to sell five million copies in its first seven months of availability. It took a bit longer to tally their next million, but the team at 4J Studios is happy to announce that Minecraft’s Xbox 360 edition has now sold six million copies:
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has now sold over SIX MILLION copies !!! #MinecraftXBLA

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will get a chance to sell even more copies when the disc version of the game is released to stores on April 30.
Now this is an unexpected surprise.
Microsoft has announced that a retail disc version of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will be released on April 30. The game will carry the same $19.99 price as the Xbox Live Arcade version and will work with the same Skin Packs and Title Updates as its downloadable brother.
The disc version will include all of the content from the eight Title Updates released for the game so far as well as the upcoming ninth Title Update, which will contain The End, the Ender Dragon, and a variety of other additions and tweaks.
Mojang may bring Minecraft to one or more PlayStation platforms after their exclusive agreement with Microsoft is complete, according to Lead Designer Jens Bergensten.
Speaking to iGamer, Bergensten said, “Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we’ll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely.”
Obviously, any deal between Mojang and Sony is still in the early stages, so exactly which platform Minecraft might come to (PS3, PS4, Vita) is still up in the air.
Bergensten was later contacted by Polygon and clarified the company’s position on a Wii U port, saying, “First of all, no doors are closed, but the reason I said that was that during the last couple of months we’ve been discussing the future of the console version of Minecraft, Wii U has barely been mentioned.”
According to Microsoft, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition‘s Title Update 8 is “upon us.” It’s coming soon, obviously, but the “when” of the update is still a bit hazy. However, the “what” has been finalized.
So hit the jump if you’re just itching to know what Title Update 8 will include. (more…)
Since it’s release in May, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has sailed past numerous sales records. Xbox Live Arcade users scooped up two million, then three million, and finally four million copies of pixelated favorite. What comes next? Why, five million, of course.
Daniel Kaplan, Mojang’s Business Developer, has revealed that on December 31, the Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft surpassed five million copies sold:
On the last day of 2012, Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition hit 5 million copies sold! Crazy! Amazing! Great way to end the year :) Thanks!

Minecraft really is the little game that could and I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before it reaches six million. Say it with me: I think I can… I think I can…
Welcome to Warp Zoned’s second annual Golden Pixel Awards. It was definitely a good year for gaming. With the fight over Mass Effect 3‘s ending, the resurrection of Sleeping Dogs, and the launch of the Wii U, we were treated to 12 months of interesting stories.
So sit back and relax as we reward the best (and worst) games of 2012 with a series of accolades based on their rather unique accomplishments.
The Apocalypse List

What better way to spend your time in “The Vault” than by playing Warp Zoned’s favorite games from 2012? It doesn’t matter if you call it a “Top Ten List” or “Our Favorites From 2012,” but these are the games we plan to keep playing even if there was no game industry to keep making games. (more…)
