Mojang decided to celebrate the anniversary that Minecraft has now been downloaded over 2 million times in the four days since its release, with Skin pack they made their debut anniversary.
Sounds pretty cool to us, free skins for gamers which you could only see on PC’s and Mac’s before, you can see console version is going step by step to full computer game. There is one thing they miss, and that is Mods. While moderators have work to do on computers for the players sometimes they also have a console audience but they aren’t able to approach it, not yet atleast. Maybe sometimes in future we see mods coming on to consoles too.
Avatar’s appearance is a important factor to many player in Minecraft, you are recognized by it and you get into your character more easily since you got a different look that other gamers.
As we talked about this update before we are reminding you all gamers out there that still play (not like it’s not cool anymore, but it is) update 9 is coming to our platforms, depends which platform you are on. In the meanwhile you should check out this Dota 2 like Minecraft video we enjoyed and we just had to share it with you guys, just like we share our Mod Loader with you that is still up there for download.
Since now mobile is a big hit and a more and more game are transferring to these kind of devices, tablets and smartphone we wonder will Scrolls, the next Mojang game , come to iOS and Android or maybe even Windows Phone 8 which is something we shouldn’t ignore as Windows 8 too. With all those eights around us and Microsoft focusing on one big eco system we could probably see a new Xbox not with the name Xbox 720 but Xbox 8 which makes a lot more sense to press and players that love downloading games and programs.
4J Studios doesn’t stop working on Xbox 360 version, the console version of this indie block making gaming is getting more and more close to PC one, or Mac, what ever you prefer. The star of this update, not update for TFC mod manager but Minecraft game is the Ender Dragon, which means you will kind of be able to finish the game, in game now. But that’s not the only thing that is new to this update 7, on PC called 1.01 as we may thought.
Animal breeding, potion brewing, experience points and enchantments and many other things is now something you will be able to experience on your console at home on your comfy couch. There is a catch, The end will be there only when Update 8 comes, but the dragon will be here we hope.
What about experience ? Yes! It is here, you will have your levels just like in any other game don’t worry, it won’t affect your gameplay much but it will sure be a cool addition to it.
Minecraft has been on Xbox for quite a while, but in this week we witnessed a pretty big number, it’s only been months since Minecraft came out on XBA download and it already has 3,6 million downloads. Remember, this is an indie game from and indie developer which makes it even bigger story than it already is. We could say Notch’s dream came true and from now on he is working on another game, called scrolls. We can already kind of see a new genre coming in video game industry, something like Crafting since there are so many games now out there which don’t copy Minecraft but kind of take is as an inspiration for their own games, like Terraria and Castle Crushers which we are looking forward to play in beta release.
After a one hour huge debut in XBLA and overall 7 million PC sales this is something to look up to and take as an example how to succes in gaming, not only video game industry but as a business man, like Notch who now leads Mojang team and soon we won’t be looking them as an indie developers that’s for sure. TFC mod manager, an app or a program depends about your taste of calling this kind of stuff is something we also look forward too, the more popular minecraft is more popular are all 3rd party apps for it.
