Minecraft: Mojang 'Keen For Xbox 360 Exclusive Content'
Minecraft XBLA studio wants to see a new Xbox community grow around the game.
Published on May 4, 2012
The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft is due for launch next week, but after that the direction it takes could end up drastically different, according to Minecraft Xbox 360 developer 4J Studios.
"Mojang and Microsoft are keen for us to add new content to the game specifically for Xbox," Paddy Burns, chief technical officer at 4J told NowGamer, "and while we are working on updating the game version in the short term, we will be looking at specific Xbox content in the longer term."
As with the PC version, however, this content will be based on the desires of the community of Minecraft Xbox 360 players.
"We would love to see a community growing around the Xbox version of the game," said Paddy, "and it is something we are all very keen to enable as we continue developing the game."
There's exclusive features to Xbox 360 already, such as the ability "to take screenshots of your Minecraft levels, and share on Facebook".
And since forums are already being established for the Xbox version of Minecraft, Paddy promises that 4J Studios "will be following and interacting with these as we continue the development."
