These updates are included in the price of the game.


Please point out to me where in the purchase agreement that updates were guaranteed, and were specifically stated to be a part of the purchased product.

Minecraft in all its forms has always been paid for as-is. Every since Creative, you've purchased Minecraft at that version it currently is, with absolutely no legal guarantee of continual updates to you, the end user. 4J's dealings with Mojang and Microsoft aside, updates are in no way a factor in the $20 cost.


Please point out to me one update that was not free for any Xbox 360 game.


Well, these "updates" are adding content, not just fixing bugs and such. Would you like me to point out other games that charge for downloading updates that add content?

I got tired of waiting so i went to the PC version and now have a massive castle in the sky with a airship with 10 tnt cannons, 10 arrow machine guns, and the bottom of the ship has about 17 holes that releases about 153 pieces of TNT witht the flip of one switch

The game was fine for awhile...it kept getting little updates over time...but now...the last new thing we got was a skin pack...and that was in August. Been a huge content drought and they need to hurry the hell up already.


So 1-2 months = content drought. I disagree strongly it sounds alot more like spoiled boy syndrome to me. Not a troll on you or the community personally just all of humanities general greediness and impatience.


It would be different if this were a normal game...but what we're dealing with here is an inferior port content-wise that needs to be updated...and the longer it takes the more advanced the PC version gets and the more this one stays the same...so it's annoying as hell just sitting around waiting for this version to be complete.

IIRC, it's moving a lot faster than the PC updates did.

if im not mistaken its been said a few times before that this wasnt a port and that it was going to be its own game. so there goes your first argument. to strike down your second argument, this will never be equal to pc version, due to....well read my first statement. some things just arent possible on xbox that are on pc. get over it.

im sick of hearing everyone complain about this release taking so long. im not in the game industry but i did coding in high school. im sure its not easy taking one version of code and rewriting it into another version (ex: java to c++). heck its hard enough to just code to begin with. just be patient go play something else until the update. thats what im doin.

tl:dr when 4j decides to let loose the update rejoice....otherwise just shut the heck up.

One thing everyone forgets, mostly because I'm apparently the only Penny Arcade fan here, is that we get unlimited free updates. 4J and Mojang can give us EVERYTHING for free, and Microsoft can't do jack about it. We only pay for skin packs so MS can feel like it's getting a cut aside from the initial $20.

If I hadn't deleted my history, I'd source it up with a link. But those words came directly out of Notch's mouth, directed at Ben Kuchera and posted for our reading pleasure. So I'm not gonna complain about the update, because Mojang are legal wizards and could maybe buy our houses out from under us and we say "thanks" to them.
