'Minecraft' Xbox 360 developer 4J Studios looking to bring PC mods to console version

4J Studios, the developer behind the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft, is looking into bringing some of the better mods from the PC version over to its console counterpart.

4J Studios, the developer behind the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft, is looking into bringing some of the PC version's better mods over to its console counterpart, reports Hookshot Inc.

"The Xbox 360 won't be able to have the mod system that gives such a variety of community additions to the game on PC, but we're looking at the elements of these that people seem to be enjoying the most, and deciding how we could tailor those elements into something for Xbox," 4J chief technology officer Paddy Burns told Hookshot.

Burns suggested that modded elements will be brought over to the Xbox 360 "further down the line," after 4J and Mojang discuss version 1.2.3. Burns also stated that the idea of moving the PC and console versions of Minecraft in different directions has already been discussed.

"The audience for the game on the Xbox is different from the PC version," said Burns. "Mainly due to the console being in the living room and using controllers rather than a mouse and keyboard, so we need to ensure that whatever we do is right for that audience."

Minecraft for Xbox 360 was released on May 9th.
