The release of a new update for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition and Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition inevitably leads to a slew of new bugs. Title Update 14 (TU14) released to the PS3 on Thursday and the Xbox 360 the day before is no different. 4J Studios has already identified a number of bugs to fix and is asking for the help of players to nail down more.

While there are some unique bugs on each console, there are several bugs that carry over between the PS3 Edition and Xbox 360 Edition. This includes a disappearing block bug, splitscreen players not hearing sounds when they are not around the host, players taking incorrect fall damage, Zombies not dropping Carrots and Potatoes, and animation glitches when riding a Pig.

The PS3 Edition has some unique bugs including an obvious audio glitch when using Voice Chat. Players sound either far away or have a robotic quality to their voice. Meanwhile, the Xbox 360 has a number of unique bugs of its own but also suffers from voice chat issues when more than four players are in a world together.

You can check out the full list of confirmed bugs for both console versions of Minecraft below. These will be fixed in Title Update 15 (TU15) but 4J Studios is asking you to post at Minecraftforum.net (PS3 thread, Xbox 360 thread) if you discover more bugs.
