One of the biggest features in the PC, Mac and Linux versions of Minecraft is the ability to give your character its own skin, ranging from creepers, pedo bears and even cookie monsters.

This feature is one that did not come to the Xbox 360 however, not allowing users to customize their own characters, thankfully when the 1.7.3 update hits the Xbox Live Arcade store players will be able to select from 8 different new skins.

There is catch though, if you want this feature you will have to pay for it, where not sure how much it will be or how many you will get (although 40 have so far been announced,) but this kind of customization is defiantly a step in the right direction for Minecraft.
