The sale coincide with the announcement of “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” selling 10 million copies since release. The mash-up packs, which were introduced in a recent title update for the open-world sandbox video game, won’t be a part of the deal. You can find a set of screenshots featuring the console port in the slideshow to the left of this article and the product pages from the items on sale from the Xbox Live Marketplace below:

“Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” came out digitally through the Xbox Live Marketplace on May 9, 2012 and then to retailers on June 4, 2013. Although the console port does not allow user-created mods, 4J Studios developed the skin and texture packs as compensation. The trial versions of the downloadable contents can be played for free but will need to be purchased in order to unlock the full features.

The aforementioned 4J Studios development team is also responsible for porting “Minecraft” to the PS3, PS4 and Xbox One home consoles as well as the Playstation Vita handheld system. The release dates for the forthcoming ports have not yet been announced.

The “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” skin and texture packs one-day sale will begin on Dec. 14.
