Minecraft to Xbox 360 port

One of the biggest pieces of news out of E3, at least as far as the Microsoft Press conference was concerned, was that hit indie game Minecraft would be coming to the Xbox 360 and would have Kinect controls. Original Minecraft developer Markus “Notch” Persson has revealed the studio who will be handling the conversation and that it might be an XBLA title. Scotland’s 4J Studios (who handled the PS3 port of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion) will be working on the Minecraft port that will be coming out before the end of the year.

Notch said on Twitter, “Oh neat, I can announce the team implementing Minecraft for Xbox360! Part of their team made State of Emergency!” He followed that up with, “They ported Oblivion to PS3 and Perfect Dark to Xbox360! It’s 4J Studios.” He also included a link to 4J’s Wikipedia page, which lists the game for XBLA.
