Constant Updates May Feature In Minecraft For 360

Minecraft XBLA developer 4J Studios recently told Edge that their game may be the first to feature "constant updates". This of course being new to Microsoft who up until now have insisted on approving every patch before they go live.

"Microsoft knows that to do a similar thing that's on PC where they constantly update it, that's a very difficult thing to do on Xbox because you have to go through the full tests," explained Paddy Burns, chief technology officer at 4J studios. "But they are quite keen to move towards that - they do see it as the future, so I think we might be the first to do constant updates."

Burns also added that though updates me be constant, they won't be released as frequently as they are in the PC version. Burns also revealed that Minecraft on the 360 will be version 1.6.6 of the PC beta, though that will most likely change with the updates that follow.

Minecraft will be released later this year on Xbox Live Arcade.
