Minecraft to begin (and possibly never end) with a beta on XBLA

Minecraft to begin (and possibly never end) with a beta on XBLA
Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson likes to take things slow -- crawl before you walk, beta for two years and gain mainstream popularity and 3 million users before you release the actual game, that sort of slow. It seems Minecraft's release on XBLA won't be any different, as it will begin with a beta, much like its PC papi. Notch said he wants to discern which aspects of the game are fun on console before its release, but he thinks the Kinect features will be an interesting part of Minecraft's port, in an interview with Develop.

Notch didn't say how long the full-game beta will last, but did add that updates will probably be infrequent and mods will not be available on XBLA at launch, for fear of breaking the system.

This is pretty big news for any xobx live arcade or minecraft gamer.

MS could charge 1200 for mods as DLC.

Cool.

I only got this game because a friend begged me to.  I got it and when He kicked me out of his rp town on his server, I burned it down.  He's a total hipocrite so he cried about it and banned me.  So I will get this because Minecraft  on the Pc is fun as it is.

Awesome news.
