    Xbox 360 Console Exclusive: Minecraft will launch on Xbox without Kinect

    The Xbox Live Arcade version of Minecraft will launch without Kinect functionality, it emerged at Microsoft's recent Spring Showcase.The Xbox 360's own version of Minecraft, the phenomenally successful indie title from Swedish developer Mojang, was announced at last year's E3, and was originally slated for release late last year.

    The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft will also be base on version 1.6.6, which released on PC last May. It's the intention of 4J, who is working together with Microsoft Games Studios and Mojang on the port, to bring the game up to speed with its PC counterpart through a series of patches - one of which will introduce Kinect support.

    "1.6.6 is the level playing ground that Microsoft, 4J and Mojang agreed on at the start," lead producer Roger Carpenter told Eurogamer, "At some point we'll announce how the updates are going to come about - we will slowly but surely bring the Xbox version up through the versions."

    The Xbox 360 version introduces an in-game wiki, as well as tutorials that run through the foundations of Minecraft. It remains unclear how exactly Kinect will be integrated within the game.

    "The one thing we were at great pains to do when we took on the project was, for want of a better phrase, not mess it up," said Carpenter. "Minecraft's so dear to so many people that we had to nail it on a controller, and on Xbox."

    I bolded the Wiki part. In game Wiki in more games would be awesome. First time I think I have seen this used on Xbox?

    Why would they make the Minecraft sequel exclusive to Xbox?.. That's pretty terrible.

    I don't understand the chubby people have for this game. The concept is alright, but my lord the graphics are horrible.

All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues.

    Wait... what? Why would it's graphics have sweet $#@! all to do with peoples liking of it? Comments like this truely show why some seriously HORRIBLE games get good marks, just because they have flashy lights and colours

    I play Minecraft for the graphics. The gameplay is meaningless and an absolute joke.

    You clearly do understand the point of the game. The graphics are not supposed to be good. Its the sandbox building part that is the reason people love to play it.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    The bit appearance of Minecraft is intentional. The graphics may not appeal to everyone. But god damn, the game is $#@!ing addicting and fun as hell. It's about gameplay for me, and this has it in spades. It's SO big. If done right, this would end up being the largest sandbox game on console to date. $#@!ing cool!

    Just like 3D Dot Game Heroes, the art style is intentional and works

    After 20 hours the graphics still blow chunks, sorry. I tried to like this game. It's just not for me.
