The lights are on
Update: More skins have been revealed for Minecraft on Xbox 360 including Master Chief, Ms. 'Splosion Man, and Banjo from Banjo Kazooie.
The first skin pack will have the above and below mentioned skins along with Carmine from Gears of War, a scientist from Ms. 'Splosion Man, the original Trials biker, and Jack of Blades from the original Fable, along with lots of other non-descript characters.
The Grunt from Halo, 'Splosion Man, and the guy from Trials HD among others are coming to Minecraft for Xbox Live Arcade.
Update 1.7.3 will allow players to choose from the 8 skins already included in the game, as opposed to being randomly assigned a skin. Along with the update, players will also be able to purchase a pack of 40 additional skins, which include the skins outlined above, along with many others.

hopefully they're reasonably priced
All I keep reading is the complaining about the fact you have to BUY 40 extra skins. You do not have to BUY anything. They are there for you. Regardless. People have to remember that the PC version of MineCraft is like 30US$. While the 360 version is 20. Your getting a freaking deal regardless what you think. I mean spending about 2 bucks or so maybe 5 more for 40 skins is still a deal. Your still spending less that the PC version has right up front.
Though people will say the PC version is better. I won't argue that. Yet how many of us that own a 360 has a PC worth a damn to even play the PC version. Long with the fact of spending 30 bucks for the full version? Personally I barely maybe do have a PC that can play it but at the same time....I am not shelling out more money on what I got. I am happy to wait for the patches as I can do just as much in the 360 version as you can on the PC version. I'd be it maybe on a smaller scale but hell be still impressive either way.
I am just wanting a date to go with these words.
OF COURSE we have to pay for them. Wtf Microsoft, can't you lay your greedy ass hands off us for once?
Wow, what a ripoff, you can get any skin on the PC version for free.
Will buy. 40 skins is too much to pass up.
Way to update the article and then NOT include the price. lol fail
160 Microsoft points, for anyone that reads this and wants to know.
As soon as I got this game I knew microsoft would do this. Oh well at least we get a *** load of skins for hopefully a cheap price. I also hope they dont spend all their time doing this rather than updating the game.
I like the new skin pack
I thought it was interesting that they just announced the grunt without Master Chief. But now with Master Chief apart of the set it makes perfect sense.
Just make a skin editor, but then you wouldn't be able to sell any skin packs of course ^^
I was really hoping Master Chief would be a skin available
