    this idea is great and is quite literally needed, this would perfect the console editions as a whole and it would finally finish them off :)

    I 100% stand behind this. The decision to skip out on the update aquatic on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch was super lame I feel, and while I understand why it was done - it was still quite unfair that *every* other console edition received the update. Giving those two versions parity with PlayStation 4 legacy version would be the perfect solution, in my opinion.

    This is a very good idea I hope it happens.

    This would quite literally be the best thing to ever happen to Minecraft Console editions, and it advertises the newer 1.13/1.14 updates to those who never upgraded. This way more players may swap to Bedrock or Java after experiencing a few of the “newer” updates.

    they already lied about the console versions not getting updates, so there is no reason not to update nintendo and xb1

    mojang (NOT 4J, I ASKED THEM ABOUT THIS) has updated ps4 over 4 times, its all bug fixes, ill even list them here
    (PS4 versions only btw)
    Spawn Egg Crash Bug Fix in 2023 July - when holding a spawn egg your game crashes
    1.20.1 No Snow - snow doesnt generate in snow biomes
    Book Crash - when opening a book and quill it'll crash your game, was recently fixed
    Red Line - the red line in the world tab when bedrock was recently released to ps4

    so, mojang, you've already lied about not updating the console versions, yet you just updated xb1 and ps4, so why not update xb1 to 1.14? its just common sense

    All the Legacy Consoles and the 3DS edition should get the Tricky Trials Update for Minecraft 1.21.

    I 100% agree as it very difficult to transfer x-box 360 worlds to the x-box one version as you either have to have a world with 1.12 or lower or do some work arounds to get the worlds to work also risking corruption. I get it was left behind due to bedrock but that is besides the point as we cannot transfer our 360 worlds easily to the one. I think The x-box one edition deserves one last update to bring 1.13 or 1.14 to the game. It will then make it so legacy feels finished. Thank you for reading.

    This better happen. This is all is needed to finally send off the console editions of the game.

    This is a good idea because the aquatic update should get added to Xbox so the players on there get to experience it as well as PlayStation and Java Minecraft players. It’s unfair on the Minecraft Xbox community if they don’t get the aquatic update.

    Surely mojang will do this right? Everyone wants it and it costs them nothing.

    I genuinely do think mojang should consider this, one major reason is that the 360 edition cannot transfer old user worlds to Xbox one edition due to the update they left these games on. There’s definitely a lot of people out there who miss their old worlds, and can’t do loopholes to figure it out like the small out of people willing to. Even my little cousin wishes he could do this.

    And that’s just the world transfer issue. Not the fact that ps4 did get more updates. I do understand that mojang was pushing the bedrock edition and that’s why it ended legacy the way it did, but the least they could do, after saying no more updates and continuing to update (small update and bug fixes yeah). But come on.. it’s possible. Don’t let down a part of your community just because. I myself am obsessed with legacy edition. But the fact I play on Xbox the most, it’s unfair I can’t have 1.13 At least.. if mojang goes all out and ports the ps4 versions update (1.14), and MAYBE reenlists the Xbox one edition, that’d be… amazing.

    I hope my vote counts, don’t let me down mojang.

    Why would Mojang want ps4 edition to outperform their parent company’s own console even if it’s only for console edition it still makes a massive difference and makes them look stupid

    Agreed, if the ps4 version already has those updates it shouldn’t be all that difficult to get it ported to the Xbox and Switch. There’s no excuse for this not to get done.

    This would be the best final touch ever too console edition. It sucks only ps4 has it because not everyone has one, I’m sure many have Xbox’s but can’t enjoy the 1.14 update, literally the Xbox 360 is at a higher version than Xbox one. I would love to see every console edition version of Minecraft end at the same update. Please fix this so we can enjoy the Village and Pillage update! Thank you.

    The update would be great because after all of those years it is stale and Xbox one or maybe even switch need an update

    This is a great idea. Let everybody get the equal update and not be left out.

    I completely agree with this. One of the big reasons in my opinion why the Xb1 version should be updated is because transferring a world from the xbox360 to the xbox one is simply impossible right now due to the xbox one only having an older version than the xbox360. In short I think this would be an amazing idea as it will leave the xbox one and switch edition finished.

    The console editions would definitely benefit from this!!!!! Especially as a console player myself!

    The best idea ever I remember when my Xbox 360 got it's last update it was so sad one last update into one of the most significant updates for Minecraft would be amazing as a final sendoff.

    I fully agree with this. Xbox One Edition and Nintendo Switch Edition need to be updated. This would fix the issue of not being able to play older gen worlds on newer gen consoles. Here is an example, let's say I wanted to move my creative world from Xbox 360 Edition to Xbox One Edition, although I would be able to move the save, I wouldn't be able to play it on Xbox One Edition. Updating Legacy would fix that problem.

    Amazing idea, it should really be implemented. I always wished for this to happen. 10/10

    I love this idea! Theres been a lack of parity between the old gen console versions of the game for too long and I would love for them to finally be on the same update. As for how easy this post makes it sound, I’m not sure that’s exactly the case due to different operating systems being used, but I can’t imagine it would be too difficult.

    I hope all consoles (xbox one/Nintendo) gets updated to verison 1.14 cuz both of these can Handle newer updates, also I also want cross play to be a thing like all consoles can play with each other in legacy, and I know that bedrock was made for connecting all consoles but the bedrock engine sucks and bedrock just looks depressing.

    It would be great, Xbox one edition being is stuck on TU68 for way too long, It needs at least update aquatic
    This version is still loved by so many people and it's not fair it was replaced by bedrock edition

    This is an amazing idea as almost all the other consoles have the newer updates except for the Xbox One and Nintendo Switch!

    Xbox one edition need the update aquatic
    It's been years since Xbox one edition got a full content update, me and many other players want it to be updated, and no bedrock is too bad for me to switch to nothing beats legacy console editions and I hope Xbox one edition will get to 1.13

    I'm speaking here as someone who grew up playing Pocket/Bedrock Edition. If this were allowed it would be amazing, in all honesty. This should definitely be possible, at least on Legacy Xbox One. I presume Legacy Console uses a very similar codebase across all platforms, so you could easily use PS4's update data. Not only that but Legacy Xbox One had an update this year, so it's not like you can't update the game today. I haven't really played a lot of Legacy Console, but there are still people and communities that love playing Legacy Console, just like how there are people who love playing on older Java Edition Versions

     

    To give the people who play on Xbox One and Nintendo Switch one last, final send off, would be a dream come true for all the people that still play those versions. This would be pretty safe to do so now as well, because Bedrock is far ahead of Village and Pillage by 6 major updates. In my opinion, you have nothing to lose by updating these Editions of the game. Think of it like Base Game Versioning, but for Consoles. This is something Console Players can only get by playing old marketplace maps (Which has its own set of issues which I won't go into)

     

    Please Mojang, Microsoft or whoever makes these decisions. I ask that you heavily consider this. In all seriousness, what could possibly go wrong by giving Xbox/Switch players one, final content update? You would be doing more good then bad today, and I guarantee you will be praised for making such a great decision.
