Is there any news on whether mods will be available in any shape or form for the Xbox version? I know Microsoft frowns on modding, but for Left for Dead the good mods for PC were made DLC for the Xbox version. Will anything like this happen? Should we have to pay for them if they're free for PC?

I think they will add the good ones via DLC and I would think for free.

I could be wrong but until it is announced I think it will be free (if they were to do this)

They alread did say they are trying to get skins through via DLC.

Possible but highly unlikely, for sure.

If Microsoft can make money off of them, that is the only reason they will see the light of day.

If 4J wants them to be free, I think Microsoft will just laugh at them.

There is just so much that would have to go into the mods that it isn't going to happen any time soon. They need to be made from the ground up by 4J, checked for bugs and glitches, then Microsoft would have to approve them.

If they do add mods (BTW i dont think they will), they will most probably be paid for, like McAngusYoung said.

There arn't many money-worthy mods, but if they did sell something like the Aether for 80 MC points, i would consider it since its less than A pound and the Aether is a brilliant mod which I never really got to play because of how much it lagged my computer.

You should check into how Super Meat Boy continued to add levels and updates outside of the market chain.  MicroSoft doesn't stand over developers with a whip demanding cash. :P

A more realistic restriction would be that mods (not texture packs, but slopes, etc) in MineCraft generally require code to execute.  Each mod would require an approval process if it required executable code to be injected into the game.  If MineCraft mods were instead based on something like LUA it might be possible to add them without the approval restriction - but they're not and it probably isn't something 4J is actively adding.

They will maybe release some of the more popular mods as DLC, but I wouldn't count on them being free - this is Microsoft after all.

You're right, they don't stand over developers with a whip demanding cash. They do it to us, the consumers. There are many great examples of this. Fable 3 is probably one of the best examples.

My friend just brought up the option of making mods in updates, too. We wouldn't have much of a choice to get them or not but they'd be free.

I want buildcraft and better than wolves, those two are pretty popular so if popular ones are added then those 2 would be there hopefully.

Great Example! :Diamond:  Yeah lots of mods won't be available to us because of Microsoft's tight reign on things, but i'm sure 4J will add basic mods and popular mods to help the game, like the mod that enables you TO LOCK YOUR CHEST FROM OTHERS GETTING INTO IT  (LWZ?)I don't worry about that too much because i save my game when someone enters :P

The mod that can lock chests, better than wolves, buildcraft, and equivalent exchange I would pay for (if they weren't that expensive)

Probably already said b4 but for 1 what you guys use as mods on pc would not be called mods on xbox 360 for reasons such as A: Microsoft Xbox does not like the word mod because in there definition it refers to a person taking apart there console in wich case is of course an operation of abuse.

Now for what I think should happen for DLC content is:
we should vote on the best pc mods of mine craft that should be implemented as add-ons for 360 and available in packs for free downloads I only want them free because 1600 microsoft points is not worth the current version.
it is in mine and some other peoples opinion a rip-off of our money.

Overall your right  another game like this would be PSU (Phantasy star universe)
That game charges 9.99 every 30 days yet they close the server down due to the consumers not paying
