Start a new game?

When the new updates are available will you have to start a new game for them to activate or can I use my same world? I heard on the PC version that you had to start a new world to get the updates to work.

I think it will depend on the updates you are talking about.  Updates that involve a change in the terrain or resources therein will likely require a new world.  I believe the developers have stated so in an interview.  However, other updates like the ability to stack fences, new crafting recipes with current resources, etc., that do not involve changes in the terrain and the resources therein will probably not require a new world be started.  That said, I don't think we know that for certain.
