Minecraft to Hit the Xbox On May 9th

By Sam Gibbs on at

Minecrafters looking for a bit of four-player split-screen action won’t have to wait too long – Minecraft is coming to the Xbox on the 9th of May via the Xbox Live Arcade for just 1600 Microsoft Points or about £16-odd.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” will bring with it new multiplayer features, Xbox Live support, a tutorial to show novices the basics and a whole lot more. If you haven’t been bitten by the ‘Crafting bug yet, this might be the Minecraft for you. Anyone think it’ll be better on a console than a desktop (or phone) though? [CVG]
