My wife and I are playing Minecraft on the the Xbox 360, and it will randomly freeze. We have called Microsoft twice, and both times they have said that it "must be over heating." We know that this isn't the case because it doesn't happen on Mass Effect or on Final Fantasy, and it will happen when the world loads. Are there any patches or updates that will help with this?

Note: it is the Xbox 360 disk.

  • I don't think calling Microsoft would help you... How long do you play together in one session? Commented Jun 8, 2014 at 14:05
  • We play anywhere from half an hour to five hours. But it will freeze as it loads for the first time, or two hours in, or as it is getting to the title screen. Commented Jun 8, 2014 at 14:10
  • Hmm, this is quite a strange issue without predictability... I might have to do some looking around on this one... Commented Jun 8, 2014 at 14:13
  • Also, what version are you playing on? The latest? Commented Jun 8, 2014 at 14:15
  • Yes. From what I can tell we are playing the most up-to-date version. Commented Jun 8, 2014 at 14:16

Are you playing split screen? Or xbox Live? It freezes on split screen if more mobs spawn in a world then the limit, (this is a rare bug) You should try another world or delete your current world, if it still happens, its something to do with your internet, (sometimes my xbox freezes to on minecraft) does it happen rarely? Or commonly? I suggest making a new world, or cleaning your minecraft disc


It freezes up on us constantly ... just Minecraft on XBOX 360. We have to shut it down then restart ... we lose everything from the last save point. Appears to be a Minecraft cache issue for those that build a lot. It is definitely a Minecraft coding bug.
