I know the game has only been out for a week, but I'm just curious when the next update is expected.

Why do people continue to ask this?

99.9% of the people on these forums are the same as you, ie an end user.

Only thing you can get here is mostly speculation, so theres really no point asking and besides, its been asked DOZENS of times in the last 2 days, There is a forum search tool, please use it and cut down on unwanted threads.

That said, I, like you can only guess, and my personal guess is several weeks as the 4J Studio guys aren't even at home right now, they are visiting Mojang in sweden so I would guess nothing is done at least until they return and yes its only a guess.

Well, just a suggestion. Creative mode would go a LONG way for keeping players occupied while you work on the actual game. I know coding takes a while but trust me, people will stay longer if they can mess around on Creative mode for a while. :)

I just bought the game for xbox 360, and I must say that it is truly a unique, highly addictive game.  I searched the web and saw that there is an ender dragon, leveling, enchanting, and more on the PC version.  I'm assuming in due time you guys will update the 360 version with boss mobs and or quests, because, mining and building gets kind of repetitive.  Especially when you don't have a goal to accomplish and you're swatting mobs like flies.  I would love to be stockpiling reserves in order to defeat the mighty ender dragon.  I guess i'll have to wait.

There won't be quest because there are no quests on the PC version. There is no goal to Minecraft. That is the beauty of the game. You make the goal and ou decide what you want to achieve.

FYI, the Ender Dragon is easy to kill.

You say there's no goal, but I'm pretty sure the goal is to build, mine, and survive; after that, you do as you please.

Oh good God!
Please, Stop asking this question.
Look, 4J and Mojang already have 1.8.2 Ready for MCXBLA
Yes they are skipping 1.7
They were going to release this update Yesterday, but Microsoft told them that it is way to early to release updates
for this game, It has only been about 5 days.
So everyone relax, Give it some time,
The update is on its way.

4Jsteve said that the next update WILL be 1.7.3 in another thread. They aren't skipping updates. or at least they aren't skipping 1.7

Why are you still here? don't you have coding to do to stop these repeated questions? (Sarcasm doesn't translate very well over text) :P

I had headed home for the night from the office and was still checking the forums :P The question should be "Why are you still here? Don't you have relaxing to do?" :P

It's as much of a "goal" as building your city in SimCity is a "goal".What he means is since there is no "win condition" there is no real objective, the game really is what you make of it. Hell no where does it state that mining is even necessary. Or even building a house.

Would it be safe to assume the Xbox Updates will do the same as the PC updates, as in 1.7.3 will only do as much as it did on PC?

I'm sure they said that it is the equivalent. So everything between 1.6 beta and 1.7.3 will be added when it is released.

Amazing that people keep asking the same stuff when a simple search finds most of this out...

I mean it even says on the title screen that the game will eventually be updated. :D

Ehhh I'm just lazy and procrastinating :P I'm sure the answers are out there, and yes I realize it will be updated I was just wondering if the versions would be the exact same or as close as possible to emulate on Xbox.
