AU Shippin' Out May 7-11

Get your block on this week with the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft.

The ever-popular hit PC title Minecraft will headline Microsoft's Xbox Live Arcade seasonal promotion, titled Arcade Next.

Coming to Xbox 360 this week.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will debut on May 9, with a 1,600 Microsoft point price attached. Already a phenomenal success on the PC, Mojang's open-world construction game will add Kinect support via a postlaunch patch. Development of the port is being handled by 4J Studios, the outfit behind the Xbox 360 versions of Perfect Dark and the Banjo-Kazooie games.

The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft will also introduce an in-game wiki--a tutorial mode that teaches players about the foundations of Minecraft--as well as improved navigation and crafting systems.

Also out this week is Starhawk, the spiritual successor to 2007's Warhawk. The game is a PS3-exclusive space-Western that features both single-player and multiplayer modes. Like Warhawk before it, Starhawk will support competitive multiplayer matches on large-scale maps that cater to three varieties of combat: on foot, in ground vehicles, and in flying machines.

To see what else is out this week, check the list below:

Hey, I've just received a free Minecraft Giftcode!You can get one too! >> <<


1600 MS points? Might not get it cuz of that =(


I got Starhawk early and it is awesome But I'm sure the one system fanboys will beg to differ.


Starhawk is an amazing game. The Beta was amazing. It need more recognition than it has, because CoD and Halo are stealing the spotlight. This is a shooter thats not like the others.
