Those experiencing serious issues with Minecraft Xbox 360 Title Update 14 and/or Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition Patch 1.04 will be happy to know that help is on the way, now that 4J Studios has confirmed another round of updates are currently undergoing final certification testing.

Fans have been absolutely ravenous for new Minecraft Xbox 360 and Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition content these last few months, so millions were likely thrilled when the latest title update for 4J Studios' console Minecraft ports made its Xbox Live and PSN debut last week. In fact, if social media was any indication, millions definitely were thrilled; however, Minecraft Xbox 360 Title Update 14 and Minecraft PS3 Patch 1.04 didn't arrive without their fair share of issues (for some).

Though the bugs haven't affected everyone, as is typically the case with new software rollouts, a few Minecraft Xbox 360 and Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition owners found themselves experience issues that drastically impact their ability to play the game as they normally would.

Fortunately, 4J Studios' various Minecraft teams have been hard at work on fixes for most of the biggest issues to arise in the wake of the Title Update 14 deployment, and have since submitted new patches to both Sony and Microsoft for final certification. Such testing usually takes a couple of days, but opens the door for the bug fix patches to arrive as early as next week, if not sooner.

Most notably, those playing the latest version of Minecraft Xbox 360 and/or Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition should no longer find themselves taking random fall damage, and blocks should no longer reappear after being mined. A variety of audio issues have also been corrected, including sound problems that arose while playing splitscreen, and issues with some sounds that trigger during the game's Enderdragon encounter.
