Java on Xbox 360

Hello everyone,

I recently read that Mojang is planning to release Minecraft on the Xbox 360 and it got me thinking... It that even possible? To my knowledge, there aren't any Java APIs that support Xbox features (such achievements, Xbox Live Market, etc...). And does Xbox 360 even support Java apps in the first place?

P.S. I do hope Java game developers are aware of this popular title

Hmm... true. But rewriting everything in another language seems a little crazy.

I don't know for sure but I think that is what Rovio did for Angry Birds.

Hmm actually I've recently heard from a friend that Microsoft is taking care of porting Minecraft onto Xbox.

The Xbox 360 does not support Java, so that means the Minecraft that is going to be released on the Xbox 360 will not be in Java. Minecraft is being ported (although Notch said it would not be a strait port) to the Xbox 360 by 4J Studios, which ported Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to the PS3.

I would bet on a port using the XNA platform. It uses C# and is portable to xbox 360.

Mono Project has application which is able to convert java classes to .Net assemblies, so porting won't be so hard)
 
It wasn't my idea to go to some crazy nightclub in the middle of nowhere. I just wanted to stay home and cuddle with this tiny ad:
