Minecraft Xbox 360 TU13 Update?
I want it to have the same constant updates like the attention the PC gets. I don’t want the game to die off (when or if) a Minecraft Xbox One Edition comes out.
Seems kinda silly to buy a game for the same price (Xbox 360/PC) and have one lose its replay value because new Minecraft Xbox 360 features are discontinued.
Meanwhile two other Minecraft editions (that are currently out) would continue gaining new features.
That being said I’ve worked in the same world for months and to me Minecraft for the most part is THAT save file. If another console edition comes out I really wouldn’t have an interest in it because most likely they wont had a file converter or anything of the sort. I would honestly be in love if they did that, but its very VERY doubtful.
Eventually the Xbox 360 will go even more down in price which I hope would be incentive to buy Minecraft for Xbox 360 and extend the development time for this game…
This runs me to my final question, Microsoft has hardball marketing strategies. To not release a new version for the Xbox One would be shooting themselves in the foot. I’m sure they are looking at how popular it is and have some idea of how they want to execute this. There is two ways they will go about this:
Option one would be to take their time and integrate features like kinect into the Minecraft gameplay.
Option two would be to rush it as fast as they can for a launch title and make a lot of quick dough. And pretty much make the same exact game from square one (as in Minecraft 1.0).
I hate to think that the announcement of the new system cutting us short on our Minecraft Xbox 360 exclusive features. Its really just unlucky timing indeed.
I can see us getting the next update and one more after that. Obviously the next one is another Minecraft Xbox 360 title update based on PC. And then the game is said to “branch off onto its own” Which I just don’t see happening more than one or two updates more.
Either way I’d say the longevity of this game is numbered to 1-2 years at the longest because of:
- People leaving to new consoles/PC gaming
- Possible new Minecraft edition for Xbox One and PS4
- Development discontinued due to lack of purchases of Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition
What are your thoughts? How are things go to play out in your opinion?
