    cmon everyone get your crap together and vote for legacy edition to get updates again, bedrock is the worst at fixing bugs, lag, world corruption etc. sure yeah add the blocks to the old version we would like that.

    They don't have the license to do that anymore. Besides, instead of just updating versions that very few people could play now, Mojang should focus on updating Bedrock Edition. Bedrock Edition has a lot of potential for being as good as or even better than the old Legacy Console Editions. Spending a lot resources on Legacy Console that could otherwise be used to improve Bedrock Edition performance, UI and gameplay is a huge waste.

    I hope they at least bring back Minecraft legacy edition so we can download it again.

    Please bring it back. I  have had Bedrock on my Xbox one since it came out in 2017 and it is buggy. The knockback in servers suck, The menus suck, and you have to but everything. Please remove bedrock from xbox one and PS4 and give us back legacy or Atleast make a Xbox Series or PS5 legacy edition

    Ziad El-Moursy  if the Console Edition would get updated it would probably be updated by 4J so the Bedrock Edition won't lose any Dev. I also don't think that the Bedrock Edition can be better because it is very buggy.

    I would love this to happen bugrock is far too glitchy and generally feels worse than the old console edition.

    Bringing the legacy console editions back will be very difficult because 4J studios does not have their developer consoles anymore. I'd personally love to have the Legacy Console Edition back but it is extremely unlikely that they'll bring it back since Bedrock edition brings more sales and it has much more players. As a Minecraft Wii U edition player, I was very disappointed that bedrock was not coming to the Wii U but one of the games directors said that the Minecraft Wii U edition has a much smaller playerbase then any other console at the time (Not counting 3DS and Firestick) and won't be worth porting the bedrock edition. There isn't much we can do in this situation since 4J won't be touching Minecraft Legacy Console again due to them not having the resources they need, but maybe in the future we can have a "Minecraft Legacy Xbox Edition" and have all the textures updated and the game being updated to the same version as Java edition at the time being. Sorry this was long lol

    Look, I agree. I would love for it to come back, but that would throw out months of work for the Bedrock Edition, you guys just gotta move on. I would love it if it came back but, let's be honest. Terrible idea for Mojang, like a really crappy financial decision and would loose a hole crap-ton of the Minecraft fanbase. Case closed, Mojang would be screwed up.

     

    4J also has clearly stated that the older consoles cannot handle the old legacy version anymore so it borderline impossible to bring it back.

     

    I agree Bedrock is broken to all hell, but like man they are trying their best so stop crying about it and start whining somewhere else than 4J Studios twitter page and Mojang twitter.

    This is a wonderful idea! I'd love to see Mojang consider it and maybe bring 4J Studios back on the team! It would be much better to do this rather than use bedrock edition as the mainline edition of the game...

    Sure it would probably require more resources and money, but I think it would be worth it! Plus, the legacy edition preforms tons better than bedrock, and feels less soulless than bedrock.. Feels like it had more heart and soul put into it, when bedrock just seems to be an "upgrade" for the sake of being an "upgrade"...

    And don't get me started on minecoins and mine tokens... Oh my goodness, I understand people make money off of this and it helps pay the bills- but it feels so much like a soulless crash-grab... It even shoves maps and microtransactions in your face when you're trying to start a world... The most Legacy Edition ever did was say "Hey! Look at these cool texture packs, you can try them out for free if you would like, you don't have to buy them though. But we would appreciate if you did!"
    Bedrock is so much more forceful on it, while in Legacy edition it was just there, and a nice little addon...

    With all this being said, I still don't understand why they stopped supporting the console editions of the game besides to have cross-platform play, but I'm sure they could've imported it somehow without having to switch everything to bedrock...

    I agree, the bedrock edition is bad just because its not made to be played on anything other than phone

    OP had a good idea. However, counter-idea...

    Why not have 4J Studios (and OtherOcean, who made New 3DS version) act as external/secondary quality control for Bedrock? Like how an editor is quality control for a book. Why not have these studios who have a good reputation with the Minecraft IP and community, as well as game enhancement/optimization continue to work with Mojang on the most recent versions arm in arm, side by side?

    Certainly get a better product than we have now, at least...

    This is so pointless. Just play Bedrock, it’s essentially the same thing. There are far too many nostalgia-blinded people here voting for this nonsense

    The old Minecraft was more stable and playable. Not only that but I have many friends who prefer the old Minecraft a lot more then bedrock and i agree with them.

    как единственный иностранный игрок в майнкрафт, хочу сказать что консольное издание игры от 4J Studios было намного лучше, чем Bedrock Edition. На моем xbox one s игра работает хуже, чем на iPhone 8. на этом все
