When to expect Xbox Minecraft Update

Well actually the Minecraft 14 update for Xbox is now live (and the PS3 version should follow in a day or so.) We've had a quick play through of the 4J studios flagship titles and we've definitely got a list of favourite new MC XBOX360 features and some that we still have yet to try.
Some of our favourite speculation going down right now is how efficient the new tripwire hooks are going to be in creating trapchests. Combine a tripwire with the new ender chest and you're going to have an awesome multi dimensional trap! Will this be useful to trap ghast when they start pouring out into the overworked through abandoned nether portals, hmmm.
New blocks like emerald look great and the addiction of carpets is another interesting decorative feature, one of those aforementioned we'd like to try is to see if we can combine trapdoors with a carpet on top to disguise them(and pressure plates too). Pig riding has also got easier thanks to ten carrot on a stick which really gets the little porkers racing, and it's easier to get a pig ride too as some pigs now drop saddles on their demise. Thoughts go out to the villagers who now have to take up the daily grind by all having different professions, and even death is no escape from the Minecraft villager rat race as Zombie villagers have reportedly been seen! Perhaps those villagers with better professions can save up for a  yacht from www.a2a-yachting.net - BVI Yacht Charters  ! Here is the
