A pre-release look at Minecraft's flying nemesis

Some of the greatest ecological upsets arise when a new species is introduced to an environment in which it has no natural competition. Hence, for instance, the sad decline of the Eurasian red squirrel, cruelly displaced by the arrival of those pushy, aspirational greys from North America. With title update 9, 4J Studios plans to introduce a building-sized flying lizard composed of toughened purple-black blocks to Minecraft Xbox 360. Fortunately, the Ender Dragon does have a natural competitor: you.... read more

Minecraft Xbox 360 update 9: how to beat the Ender Dragon an

While it is nice that TU8 forces a Nether Fortress spawn it would have been nice to have it work on already created worlds. My chap has all he needs in terms of kits and potions (survival gameplay, not creative), but there is no nether fortress, at all, not one. Which means no blaze rods. Which means etc.etc... Sad to have to start from scratch and build myself up from a tree puncher again.

Is this the final PC equivalent update we get? Then they go onto adding stuff they want to that seem logical... I rarely play minecraft as there is no incentive to, a few achievements tied around 'The End' or Ender Dragon would go a long way in making me redo the entire game again. Again, I'd pay a small fee for this, I feel like I'm wasting my time otherwise and can't shake that feeling.

If it follows the pc one on updates there will be loads yet.There are desert temples yet villagers you can trade with,iron golem,cats that you can tame.Witches if they inclue it.Bigger worlds and Nether which i have read will be possible,not def. sure though.Loads of others as well.

I read 4J are only doing certain PC features after a certain update, maybe 1.3 and then doing their own whilst cherry picking important/cool ones from PC.

I'll search Eds archives...

Sorry Bezza didn't realise that,just assumed they would keep it in line with the pc one.Obviously the updates haven't been the exact same as we have received some things earlier than they did on pc.Also didn't think that anything that has been released for the pc one would be a problem for the 360 except for infinite worlds and Nether.Saw a post on the Minecraft wiki that asked about that as well as some other question and the devs reply didn't confirm or deny that it was possible or going to happen.

Is there no sense of achievement from destroying a massive house-sized dragon without getting an achievement for it then?

I think I will return to the pixellated land soon, now that there's a wealth of new things to craft and discover. I've been put off for a while for not wanting to have to restart to avoid missing things, but soon the time will be right.

If it makes you feel better Bezza, I'll give you an achievement if you do it ;-)

I'd normally be way more excited for a Minecraft Xbox update if not for the fact I now possess a laptop that can run the PC version silky smooth.

What can I say? I am a traitor.

If you mean into the end portal i presume it is because there is no dragon yet.There wouldn't be much point letting you use the end portal if there is nothing in the end when you get there.It is supposed to be in the next update i presume they have added the portal to save themselves time later.
