‘Minecraft’ Title Update 14 Details For PS3 & Xbox 360 [Updated]

[Updated: Title Update 14 is now out for Xbox 360, hits PS3 tomorrow.]

Minecraft mania shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. With over a hundred-million registered users, a whopping 14 million PC sales and a level of cultural influence usually reserved for brawny space shooters, Notch’s block building empire just keeps on getting bigger.

The same might actually be said of the game’s ever-expanding bag of tricks, with every new update bringing with it a fresh perspective on the subterranean title. Recent PC patches have included everything from Twitch support to mini-game arenas, though today’s news concerns the title’s home console cousins.

Minecraft ‘Title Update 14′ (a.k.a. Patch 1.04) introduces a flurry of tweaks and additions for the game’s Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 ports. Highlights include the ability to control pesky pigs with a carrot on a stick, fresh mobs of zombie villagers and a whole host of new languages to choose from.

Cool new items include a tripwire hook (sure to result in some interesting trap designs), an invisibility potion (perfect for fans of witchcraft and wizardry), and a new night vision tonic that makes it possible see during the ever dreaded night time. Additional quirks include poisonous potatoes, a golden carrot and an enchanted book.

Minecraft Publishing Deal

This latest update certainly includes some fun features, though the game’s console-bound community still lags someway behind its PC-playing friends. Granted, both console iterations launched much later than their computer-based counterpart — though you’d still expect Mojang and 4J Studios to have attempted to bridge that gap more significantly.

Will Minecraft for home consoles continue to trail behind the PC version for the foreseeable future? Which elements of the PC release deserve a console debut? What do you make of these latest additions and how can Mojang help to sustain Minecraft‘s success? Let us know in the comments below, and be sure to keep up with all of the latest Minecraft news, right here on Game Rant.


Minecraft Title Update 14 is expected to release sometime in the following week. The revision applies to both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 copies of the game.

    Im so excited for this update! I only recently bought an Xbox 360 (that has access to wifi) and I personally love Minecraft (I’ve had it since the early days, on the computer, maybe, I dont know…2010!) Anyways, i personally believe it could be improved and this is the update I have been looking for! Fantastic!

  • Ryan

    the next update for minecraft ps3 edition add moving cruise ships

  • SpiderMonkey993

    The new update is fun and all, don’t get me wrong, just not fun when you have immature players who wanna destroy everything you’ve worked so hard to build. So if you wanna play, send me a request. SpiderMonkey993 on Xbox 360. I have a mic, just not with me at the moment. Preferably someone trustworthy and fun to play with. I play in creative, but can create a world in survival. :)
    Happy gaming!
