Minecraft updates are no more on last-generation systems.

With the release of The Nightmare Before Christmas Mash-Up pack, Mojang has said goodbye to last-gen versions of Minecraft.

The Swedish developer has given Minecraft players more than most gamers would ever hope for. Since the game’s release in 2009, Minecraft has seen countless patches and additions. The last-gen versions of Minecraft have seen a wealth of support way after their successors rocked up, too.

The announcement came from 4J Studios, the porting studio behind Minecraft’s console versions. Posting on Twitter, the studio announced that they were packing up their dev kits of last-gen systems. There was also a crying emoji.

As we pack up our Xbox 360, PS3, PSVita and WiiU development kits, we're getting all nostalgic 😢
Please share some of your best memories over the past six and a half years of Minecraft on these consoles!

Minecraft was introduced to console players back in 2012 with the release of the Xbox 360 version. It was a huge deal and only boosted the game’s already stellar popularity. Since then, Minecraft has seen 73 Title Updates on the system. It really is the end of an era.

TU73 (the final update) for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will be out later today, adding The Nightmare Before Christmas Mash-up Pack.
It's been a long journey since TU1 on May 9, 2012!
Thank you to the more than 21 million #MinecraftX360 players for your support over the years 🙂

It’s rather sad that this is the end for Minecraft on last-gen systems – it was one of the few games still getting updates. So long, Minecraft. So long, last-gen.
