Minecraft For Xbox Gets A Large Update Today

The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft has sold over 2 million copies, and that number is going up. People just can’t seem to get enough of the blocky goodness that Minecraft has to offer, and who could blame them? Though the game has done well since its release on the new platform, it’s still been the victim of bugs and issues. Good thing Mojang cares about their game and its players, because they’ve released a hefty update that should take care of a lot of problems players seem to be having.

The full patch notes can be found below, but the main things to pick up from the update are that there will be plenty of hotfixes, an autosave feature has been added, and a lot of other new features have been included to help the game rum much smoother. Take a look for yourself:
