    I'm a largely in support of this as I feel the old legacy edition has a different play style and experience that caters to the device it's being played on. Similarly to Java edition, Xbox One and Switch edition run much more smoothly on the device they were made for which bedrock edition lacks due to it's attempt at being universal.

    In my opinion you should be able to purchase all Legacy Console editions (Xbox 360 Edition, Xbox One Edition, PlayStation 3 Edition, PlayStation 4 Edition, PlayStation Vita Edition, Wii U Edition, and Nintendo Switch Edition). This would not only make players happy who want to try out these editions or get them again for nostalgia but it would also allow 4J Studios, Mojang, and Microsoft to make some easy money off of these games with little to no effort (since they would not need to be updated).

    This would also allow players who originally played Xbox 360 Edition, PlayStation 3 Edition, or PlayStation Vita Edition to convert their worlds over to either Xbox One Edition or PlayStation 4 Edition in order to be converted to Bedrock Edition from there

    This would be good. I can see them also not having any online multiplayer if this happens but I'd still be fine with that

    Ye this’d be great I ever got this version and I’ve been meaning to get it so I can play my Xbox 360 worlds

    This is something I’ve been wanting for years. Since I’m more of the fan of the legacy edition.adding this would allow some returning players a choice plus make some easy money as it doesn’t need to be supported anymore. Hopefully They can look into this as it’ll be not only easy money but also make fans happy. Of course there should be a disclaimer stating that this version is no longer supported.

    i'm gonna have to agree to captain america, bedrock is not at all optimized and i would love the chance to rebuy the legacy ones. hey mojang you've got nothing to lose, you've already developed the game

    I hope they do this. Or they should at least add the console aspects addon to the marketplace.

    I 100% agree on this. I feel nostalgic for the legacy console editions (especially Switch, as theres no physical version of that one). I feel like Bedrock is clunky and just doesn’t- feel right. I don’t care if they don’t even update them, I just wanna experience them again. At the end of the day, all they’ll need to do is remove the “Get Bedrock FREE!” button, maybe re-name it to “Classic” or “Legacy”, press a few buttons to get it back up on the store, and boom. Done.

    I don’t wanna keep going back to my Wii U just to play my preferred version of Minecraft! Bring it back!
