Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition gets new update

Let's face it, Minecraft on Xbox 360, PC and Mobile is a beast. It's already sold loads and the sales continue. Now that it's out on PS3 and coming to Vita, PS3 and PS4 those sales will no doubt continue to add to Mojang's coffers, but anyway, that's getting off the subject, because this post is actually about the latest update.
