New ‘Minecraft’ PlayStation And Xbox Patch Details Out, See What’s Being Fixed

The recent release of Title Update 19 (TU19) to Minecraft on PlayStation and Xbox consoles means that a follow-up update (TU20) to fix bugs is on the way. After some teasing, developer 4J Studios announced Friday that it had submitted the bug fix update to Microsoft and Sony for approval and gave the full details on what is being fixed.

4J Studios made the Title Update 20 announcement via its Twitter feed, as usual, with links to the Minecraft Forum where it makes official posts on upcoming features. Since TU19 for consoles combined three PC updates into one – Pretty Scary, Redstone, and Horse – it should come as no surprise that the list of fixes included in TU20 is lengthy and broad.

There are some console-specific fixes such as a save transfer issue with the Xbox 360, Achievement issues with the Xbox One, and a Halloween Texture Pack issue with the PS3. Generally though, Minecraft players will be happy that horses will now render correctly while riding one and Creepers will no longer hover over the ground, among other issues.

The certification process for both Microsoft and Sony can take up to two weeks. However, since this is a bug fix patch, expect it to go through the process in approximately one week or less. Note though that Sony has different certification teams for North America and Europe so the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita may not receive the patch at the same time in both regions.
