I bought Minecraft for me and my dad on the xbox. Over the last year my dad and me have shared the same Minecraft account since we only have one pc. My had dad is often playing it on the pc. So he was realy excited to get it for the xbox so he at minimum didnt have to wait to get on the pc. Now you can sit back and relax and mine. Bonus is I can play with him.
However just as the Bombcast start talking about minecraft and how Jeff hut the edge of the world then my dad came in and said "The map....is only your world. I have hut the edge of the world." This instantly annoyed me. I know they are going to update it from the current 1.6.6 beta build of pc and improve.
However I cant find any info on if the size of the world will become like the pc. A number of people ask this and the main reply is. "You think it will be like pc? Your insane!" Maby that is true and there is a limit to the xbox for a seemingly simple game.
This revelation has me and my dad very very disappointing on the Xbox version, I dont think we are going to play and view this as a waste of money.My dad even talked about "I am going to delete my minecraft on pc. Since Ill just playing this version from now on. as long as they update."
However I am scared at the prospect's ahead. Look at the well toted Xperia play version....is an alpha build of creative mode and has not improved. The Ipad version was released and was the same build. I dont hear that they have improved. Yet they charge money for it.
Does anyone have any nugget of "Sourced" info. I would only take a link that just someone saying stuff at me.
It feels pointless to play this version.
Coming to the realization with the biggest argument that makes sense is. Multiplayer, the main big sell of the xbox version. Try and run an infinite map with 4 to 8 people at all 4 corners at the one time....it only means more and more ram.
Ugh which means its freaking horrible prospect that this is severely not the version I want and i am greatly greatly greatly sickened by the fact I bought two copies. I also have to burden my fathers disappointment in it. since he is actually a bigger minecraft player than me.
I fell horrible enough folks no need to keep guilting me by basically calling me stupid with comments such as "Its xbox what did you expect?!" I know, I just hoped, I could change it. nope I am stupid so don't remind me. If anything this is to warn other people now.
