Minecraft: Bedrock Edition (Xbox One)
Minecraft: Bedrock Edition (also known as the Bedrock Platform, Bedrock Codebase or Bedrock Engine) refers to the multi-platform family of editions of Minecraft developed by Mojang AB, Microsoft Studios, 4J Studios, and SkyBox Labs. Prior to this term, as the engine originated with Pocket Edition, this entire product family was referred to as "Pocket Edition", "MCPE", or "Pocket/Windows 10 Edition".
Except on the Apple TV Edition, for which the "Better Together Update" has not yet been released, all Bedrock Editions use the title Minecraft with no subtitle. Before the "Better Together Update", they had different subtitles on each platform, including Pocket Edition (for all mobile platforms), Windows 10 Edition, Gear VR Edition, and Fire TV Edition. Also, the original Java-based version of Minecraft has been renamed Minecraft: Java Edition.
Note: This article is only focusing on the Xbox One version rather than the Switch version and Playstation 4 version.
Why It Used To Suck
- It is literally the mobile version of Minecraft on the console, which is ill-fitting for a console.
- Paid mods (if you can call them mods. There's also old skin packs and texture packs in the mix), similar to Bethesda's Creation Club. Also, microtransactions are used to get Minecraft Coins, which are used to pay for the resource packs, and also for pets and other services on the sponsored servers.
- This is carried over from the Chinese Minecraft server operated by NetEase.
- There are glitches that cause skins to not be rendered correctly.
- Some physics and mechanics are broken, unlike the Legacy Console Edition and Java Edition.
- Downgraded graphics from the Xbox One Edition, due to the game actually being the mobile version of Minecraft. For example, water after a certain distance now looks completely blue with no texture whatsoever.
- As this versions replaces the former Legacy Console Edition, the minigames were removed in this version, which basically destroys part of the multiplayer experience.
- The update felt rushed out the door for Christmas and the Xbox One X launch, as well as Minecon Earth, since there are tons of glitches and framerate drops.
- The game cannot be modded at all. If the Windows 10 and mobile versions of the game and the PC version can have custom texture packs, custom sounds, many mods, and the Legacy Console Edition can also be modded, why can't the Xbox One version be modded?
- Changed creative controls that are hard to get used to.
- Noticeable input lag that is greater than both Minecraft: Java Edition and Minecraft: Xbox One Edition. You will notice it, at least at first.
- The Legacy Xbox One Edition can no longer be bought digitally, and if you have never bought the digital version in order to download it, you're pretty much forced to buy a retail copy of the Legacy Xbox One edition now.
- The tutorial world has been completely removed.
- You can no longer try texture packs for free.
- The addition of featured servers was nice for the console.
- At least this port is good now, along with the Windows 10, PlayStation 4 and Switch versions, but the mobile version is still mediocre though.
- There's cross-platform play.
- Infinite worlds make their debut on the console, and so is the ability to use keyboard and mouse controls.
- Increased render distance from the Xbox One Edition.
- Some players who played the mobile version of the game may enjoy.
- Resource Packs can be used in the game.
- Thanks to Xbox Game Pass, Mojang has reported there were 90 million monthly users.
- Texture Packs from the Legacy Console Edition makes return to Minecraft Marketplace.
- The port has been improving over time with newer updates adding more content and fixing bugs and glitches.
- You can still play the legacy console edition even if you haven't owned it prior.
