As with anytime that a developer adds new content to a game, a number of unforeseen bugs were introduced alongside Title Update 14 and Patch 1.04 for the console editions of Minecraft on Xbox 360 and PS3. A recent follow-up patch fixed a number of those issues but 4J Studios is still at work ridding the game of the remainder of the bugs as they are discovered. The developer confirmed on April 25 that they are currently addressing an assortment of issues that come from the new in-game invisibility options.

Furthermore, 4J Studios also revealed that they are working on a bug that was found to interfere with the sounds that are supposed to trigger from noteblocks. By announcing their continued effort to rid both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of Minecraft of bugs, despite the fact that they just made a pass at known issues in the game’s most recent title update, shows the developer’s commitment to both their fans and the product.

Also coming out soon is the release of a new Spider-Man Skin Pack DLC which is set to add 35 new avatar skins to Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition next week which are all based upon the popular Marvel Comics series. Additionally, Patch 1.06 will coincide with the launch of the Candy Texture Pack and the Natural Texture Pack on the PS3 version of the game. Both of these add-ons are already available to Xbox 360 owners but will finally launch on Playstation 3 alongside the new update.

In addition to being able to download versions of Minecraft now on Xbox Live and the PS Store, 4J Studios is also currently working on new generation editions of the popular franchise that will release on both Xbox One and PS4. The developer has also now confirmed that players will be able to import their old world saves from the currently available console version of Minecraft to continue their progress in the upcoming PS4 and Xbox One editions.
