The crafting on PC is perfectly fine. It keeps it open for modded items. If you have the menu like 360, modded items would be much more difficult to implement. The PC version is far and beyond the minecraft you guys are playing on 360. I live in a jungle. Which has cats. I can train a cat to follow me around by feeding it fish :3 When I kill an enemy I earn XP and level up. I create an enchanting table to enchant weapons and tools. I have a diamond pickaxe with "Efficiency III" and it mines as fast as gold. I can brew HP potions and such to help me out. I don't think you can find nether fortresses. So that means the nether on Xbox is useless still. I can enchant my armor to have certain advantages, I can also change how minecraft looks. XBOX players get to see pixels, but I see a smooth landscape thanks to LB Photo Realism x286. Minecraft on xbox needs Enchanting at the least. And the dragon. If they can't get the dragon in there then players will eventually get bored. And the enchanting tables add to the replayability. The quicker access you have to mining and gaining materials the more people will want to play. And the PC version rewards many hours of dedicated , slow, gameplay. With high quality enchanted items that work better than usual. The xbox version is okay. But they should really consider what they add before they leave something out. If anything, figure out how to control the mob spawning. It's absolutely ridiculous at night.
@FudgeSociety the xbox one is going to get updates you know and and the graphics are blocks so dont try to make them seem lie they're state of the art on pc ok
