For those of you that choose to play Minecraft from the comfort of your couch on the Xbox 360 and have been experiencing some nagging issues since Title Update 9, some of those issues might be coming to an end, finally, as Title Update 11 has gone into certification. That means that it has been sent to Microsoft and as soon as they have approved it, it will be live and some of those pesky bugs will finally be fixed. It is indeed a bummer that 4J Studios have yet to be able to really release anything new for the already vastly-behind Minecraft on Xbox 360, but fixing some of these bugs should absolutely be a priority.
Some of the bugs which will be fixed with this update include the ever-present explosion lag when playing a game online, lowering the volume of Ghasts in the Nether, increasing the limits for paintings, item frames, villagers and snow golems in worlds and displaying messages when you reach certain spawn limits in the game. The big fix here is the delayed explosions because let’s face it, coming face-to-face with a Creeper, watching it grow fat with rage but not taking damage, then trying to run away only to realize that in a second the explosion will register and you’ll be damaged or dead is no fun, no fun at all. Let’s hope that Minecraft on Xbox 360 becomes fun again soon.
