    Legacy Console UI is the best version of the two. Bring it forward Minecraft!

    I 100% agree with this. The UI and control difference is what is keeping me away from this version of the game. 

     

    I much rather go back to the 360 and play (Which is what I'm doing) than play bedrock at this point.

    Yes please add this I'm super interested in a UI/GUI that has the original design of the console.

    Yes please. I'm staying on Legacy Xbox One Edition just because of this.

    I don't play much any more, entirely because the current UI is horrible with a controller.

    I am okay with change. The new UI appearance wise is really not at all that much worse than the Legacy Console UI. But I do not enjoy change when it involves an objectively slower and buggier response time than the product is been using for god knows how long know. I do not know how hard it was to make a responsive UI but it needs to be prioritized. This is one of the largest reasons I still see this version of the game inferior even though you guys have stopped updating the Legacy Consoles. This game has so many options and ways of playing, without polish it becomes overwhelming clunky and annoying to play.

    PLEASE BRING BACK THE GUI FROM THE DEDICATED CONSOLE EDITIONS!

    Minecraft Bedrock has a terrible GUI for controllers and doesn't have feature parity with the dedicated versions. We can't block death messages for example. The designers don't have to think about anything. Only the developers need to think about the implementation. It was so much faster and easier to use before. Stampylongnose and ibxtoycat have discussed the GUI in great depth.

     

    And DO NOT forget that Android and W10 can use controllers, keyboards + mice and touch and Xbox is now getting keyboard + mouse support soon. It's also worth noting that Sony is finally getting into crossplay. They are pretty mad about the store though. You should also release Bedrock Edition for Linux (rpm and deb) and macOS. I am aware of the method to use the Android version on Linux by the way.

    I strongly agree. Right or wrong, people in general tend to prefer the UI they are used to. I find myself preferring versions other than the Bedrock edition simply because I don't like how the UI looks. At the same time, I'm sure others like the new version. If it was an option to make it all look like classic - maybe even a reskinned UI feature for the store - I would probably move to Bedrock sooner. If the goal really is to unify them all then anything to feed nostalgia should be explored.

    I will likely avoid Bedrock entirely until this is a thing. To emphasize how serious this is, I quit multiple MMORPG games entirely because of UI changes and NEVER went back. Changes to UI can outright kill a game.

    I've sort of gotten used to the UI, but it's still just a hideous mess.

     

    No clue why there's been no movement on this.

    The creative inventory was so much easier to use in the old console versions. It work well with controllers. Now it's so clunky, slow, and difficult to use and is not well designed for use with a controller. It's so annoying now. I think this kind of option would be a great idea. I know I'd certainly use it.

    The new crafting for console players is kinda hard to understand I don't like the drop button in the crafting section, I miss being able to just pick up an item and then place on top of one item pressing quick action and then place the item I'm holding was so much better and also pressing R2 to distribute was easier than pressing x. To be honest I rather play on my ps3 than my xbox, because the UI is better

    YES! I did play on PS3, then switched to mobile ('cuz no more updates), and now I'm mostly on PC. I just want to experience the old UI again.

     

    Edit: I just saw the pictures posted in the comments and want it more.

    This is definitely a necessary change. The old UI was just quicker when it came to grabbing materials(for me personally), and the new one just makes it go so much slower when you want to just open and switch. Definitely needs to be made as an option, because that's what users from the 360 will be more comfortable with.

    I totally agree!

    To any Microsoft employees reading this: The Bedrock edition's UI for crafting/inventory/other in-game interfaces is not built for joysticks and d-pads. Using a cursor to pinpoint a specific item in a large grid is extremely difficult, and makes crafting so much slower and difficult. I just can not play the new version, along with the majority of my friends, mainly because of this. Please bring back the Legacy Console UI for crafting, inventory, and other in-game interfaces as an option that we can turn on/off. I would love to start playing the Bedrock edition if this gets resolved.

    Please please please add this option in bedrock. I’ve been playing the Xbox one edition since the new version came out as I can’t get used to the “classic” way of crafting. It’s mega clunky on controllers to navigate around the menus and craft. Please add the old console legacy version of crafting, please 😭😭🙏🏻

    1000% Agreed. The new UI is good if you're pocket edition or even PC, but for Console, it makes it so much harder. It's harder with a joystick to take items out of a chest because it moves slower and doesn't go from slot to slot. Also, the creative inventory is just flat out ugly. Please make this change MC. I would totally be willing to pay to have a legacy option if that's what it takes.

    the creative inventory of legacy console was the best one compared to every other version (especially in how it sorted items), it would be great if it came back
