Minecraft For Xbox 360 Gets Massive Patch

Herblore Mod 300x292 Minecraft For Xbox 360 Gets Massive Patch

Minecraft for the Xbox 360 has been behind in many aspects when compared to it’s cousin on the PC–fortunately, that gap will be bridged some today, thanks to the rather hefty 1.8.2 edition patch that’s been released.  Now, players will be able to fight new enemies, better combat their player-rivals, and enjoy the savory flavors of new food items.
