The Title Update 16 or TU16 was released in May 2014, this month for the Xbox 360 but owners of the PS3, PlayStation 3, will need to wait for another week to get the patch for their consoles.
TU16 – Features and Fixes
The TU16 for the Xbox 360 offers a lot of fixes for bugs present in this sandbox game. In addition, the update also introduces the Candy Texture pack as well as the Natural Texture one for the PS3 edition. The update fixes the issue of players becoming invisible when they die, after re-spawning and also when two gamers pass through a nether gate simultaneously.
In the previous version, there was also a problem of players becoming invisible when they were teleported till the player viewing them as invisible started moving or till they started moving themselves. This problem has also been addressed. The Noteblock pitch also had errors, especially playing the chords, which has been addressed as well.
When baby mobs turned into adults, they used to die, which has also been fixed along with chunks that did not load in the maps. When a CD is removed from the jukebox, the streaming music would not play; these and several other glitches have been removed with the latest TU16 update.
Focusing on New Versions
4J Studios is focusing more on the Minecraft new version for the Xbox One and the PS4 and are currently making tests on worlds, which are about 36 times bigger than the worlds in the PS3 and the Xbox 360. When the new version of Minecraft will be released, it will enable the importing of the worlds from the Xbox 360 and the PS3 to the modern consoles, such as the PS4, the PS Vita and the Xbox One.
