Change, this year has seen a lot of it. Technology has changed, the focus is continuing to push towards the wearable market, the next-gen consoles don’t seem too next-gen now and lets not forget extreme market turbulence (looking at you Apple and Samsung). Gadget Nibble hasn’t been immune from such transitions either – with the last of our beloved mascots, Boog, departing us. As we go into 2015, things are going to keep changing.
This week, more information was tweeted by 4J Studios about the next update to Xbox One and PS4 Minecraft.
What’s in this weeks mysterious picture…
I think we can all say that Minecraft, Xbox 360, has out-lived update 13. We need a new update to the game, before we start a riot to against 4J… Where is Title Update 14? Why is it taking so long? And please, please, let there be something good on the way!
So what do 4J have coming in Title Update 14…
In 2013 the Gadget Nibble team spent over 500 hours building (and rebuilding after Herobrine attacks) on Minecraft Xbox 360. We have accumulated a whole catalogue of awesome builds, but here’s the best:

With the Xbox One set to come out on the 22nd November and Microsoft adding, changing the workings of the console, will the Xbox Live dashboard be revamped to give the people what they want?
The Xbox Live dashboard has been updated over the years to make it look up to date and more user friendly. Back in October 2011 Microsoft added a dashboard update changing the look of the ‘dash’ to look more like Windows 8, adding a random loading ring that looked out of place from the start; along with a Metro UI. Since then smaller updates have been added and now the dashboard has more apps, sub -categories and Bing search engine, to find that long lost game or video. But with Microsoft adding only small updates , it has left the community asking for more to be added.
The community is asking to be able to upload their own picture to be used as there gamer picture (profile picture), to make their own background by uploading a picture, change what they want to see on the home menu, make their own clothes for their avatar, recommend games that the user will want to play and TO REMOVE THE ADS FROM THE MENUS!!!
All around the Xbox dashboard there are Ads popping out at the user trying to get them to click, but they are so out of date and are just getting in the way of the users dashboard experience. Before the Metro UI was added there were Ads but there was a lot less pain because they were placed at the end of a row in the game market place and in the video store, but now they are all over the place.
“I think that the Ads should only be shown if the user has not got an Xbox Live gold account” Tom from Gadget Nibble
With the community wanting Microsoft to change their plans for the dashboard, many in the community are now trying to mod and hack the console to make the dashboard their own, but now find themselves blocked by Xbox Lives hacking system. Locking them out of their account and stopping them from playing games.
I think that Microsoft need to listen to the community because the ‘dash’ is the starting point to find a new game or to load one. By removing the Ads and having a more customisable dashboard experience, players in the community will become happier.
So do Microsoft need to listen to the community or do they go alone and make more changes to the dashboard without the help of the fans?
The xbox 360 Minecraft update will be out on the 5Th of April with the End, Ender Dragon and other new blocks and eggs.
