(01) Will minecraft PC and minecraft xbox SMP be compatible?
Xbox & PC SMP are not yet available.

(02) How will we get texture packs and mods?
Texture packs could be built in or download able.
There is also a possibility of being able to transfer packs with a flash drive/internet

Jeb is working on a Mod API.

(03) How much does the game cost?
1,600 MS-points (20 $)

(04) When was it released?
May 9th 2012.

(05) Will the xbox version have SMP?
4 Person Split-Screen, 8 person xbox-live multiplayer.

(06) Is this an Indie game?
This game will be in the XBLA (XboxLiveArcade) So it will not be an indie game.
Australia/Ireland/etc will have access to the game.

(07) How will servers work?
You can set your game to invite only and you can invite friends, or your friends can join your game randomly.

(08) How will we protect against griefers?
Invite people you trust. You can kick people by pressing SELECT/BACK.

(09) PC version is better! Using a Chatpad sucks!!
This isn't really a question, but
Xbox has a Microphone along with anyone who has a chatpad.
The only incompatibility will most likely be between Xbox and PC users talking. One with mic and other with keyboard.

(10) How would we transfer maps from PC to Xbox?
Maps are not yet available to transfer to the game.

(11) How will the kinect version work?
Kinect is not available currently.

(12) Split Screen?
The xbox version does indeed have split screen. 4 person singleplayer, and 8-person online-multiplayer.

(13) Who is making the Minecraft xbox version?
Notch is not, 4J studios will be making it.
Source

(14) How will we get our skins on the Xbox?
Maybe in the future you'll go to minecraft.net and set up your Xbox Live name to your account, then when you open the game you'll get your skin? This feature is not currently available.

(15) Will I be able to buy the game with my unused giftcode?
No, giftcodes are for the pc version. The xbox version is not being made by mojang and you will not be able to enter a giftcode anywhere. You will use your xboxlive account and buy it with xboxlive points.

(16) Do I get this free/discount for being an alpha buyer?
No.

(17) When we start a world in multiplayer, will it be reset everytime we start a server, or can we select the saved map from a menu?
When you select what world you want to play on, you can check wether you want it to be"online" and also if you want it to be "invite only".

(18) What version they will be releasing on Xbox?
Beta 1.6.6

(19) Xbox Avatars or Steves?
There are steves, Depending on how many people join is what skin they are assigned, in order.

Order: Plain-Steve, Tennis-Suit, Tuxedo...

(20) Will minecraft be for PS3 Also?
Minecraft is be an Xbox / PC / Pocket-Edition exclusive game.
Notch signed a deal with Micrososoft. Its Exclusive.

(21) How will crafting work?
Like this:

(22) Will the xbox version also be bi-lingual?
Most likely, The language changing was created by jeb asking the community what the translations were to help him accurately translate the items names. It would be quite simple to change out the item name as it is just simple javascipt rather then reconstructing new blocks with new names. The name of the item is changed depending on which language you have selected.

(23) If PC users and 360 users can connect to the same server, can I prevent 360 users from joining my server?
With the minecraft-vanilla-server software, I doubt it. Just like servers cannot detect if a person is using Linux, Mac, or Windows. Same thing with Xbox. Though people will most likely make a plugin for Bukkit to block people, just like there are already plugins for bukkit to see if people are using mods on there client. Though nobody really has a reason to make a plugin to detect Linux, Mac, or Windows. There will probably be one to detect the xbox.

(24) Will _____ item/mob be in the release?
It will be when the game is updated the the version the item/mob was released in.

(25) Will I get an Xbox achievement if I have ____ mod?
No, you may get an ingame achievement, if the game allows mods, but you will not get an Xboxlive achievement for it. If a mod were to give you an xboxlive achievement the mod would be modding the xbox rather than modifying the game, which is not-allowed.

(26) What are the Xbox achievements?
Getting Wood - Punch a tree until the block of wood pops out.
Benchmarking - Craft a workbench with four blocks of wooden planks.
Cow Tipper - Harvest some leather

MOAR Tools - Construct one type of each tool.

When pigs fly - Use a saddle to ride a pig, then have the pig get hurt from the fall damage wall riding it.
Leader of The Pack - Befriend five wolves.
Dispense this - Construct a dispenser

(27) What are the Xbox awards?

(28) Do I have to pay for future updates?

(29) I'm unhappy because I cannot play split-screen

Quote

We updated our pre-sale notification to inform customers that an HD screen is required for the split-screen multiplayer feature on Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. If a player does not have an HD screen and purchased this game prior to the notification update, they are eligible for a full refund through customer support.

(30) How do we change our skin?

You can change your skin via the main menu. There are currently two skin packs out that you can buy.

(31) Will the worlds ever be infinitely large?

Probably not, As the xbox has limited space, unless users have an option in the future to allow more harddrive space to minecraft storage.

That is a good idea, but I think how what they meant for the use of it is to transfer content from xbox to xbox, not opening it on your PC. But if you mean by the fact that they made the Cloud possible, then yes transferable content from xbox to PC for games like minecraft seem pretty possible.

I can only give suggestions because nobody is sure about the questions.

The game isn't out yet. As soon I get information, I will update it.

Suggestions do help people because they are accurate situations.
