Yea, your right maybe thats because you release an update that actually changes the game once every YEAR. Meanwhile Mojang that works on pocket edition and PC edition are making massive upgrades and INVESTMENTS into Their products FUTURE. The fact that your last REAL update to the game (the one that added horses) came out in december of 2014 says ALOT. Out of ALL these past months you have managed to release a whopping SINGLE and incredibly SMALL update which catered almost solely to creative players. The fact that 4J acted like it was a real update and not a small insignificant one (which it was) is disturbing to say the least. To me that shows that 4J knew people were going to be very disappointed with there pathetic excuse of an update. So they purposely avoided saying anything about it being small to avoid catching flack for it until it released.
They Honestly Should have said this :
Here is an extremely tiny update, we know many of you have been patiently waiting since december of 2014 for a real update like 1.8; but we have been way to busy making useless texture packs to sell to you guys while acting like were somehow working on actual updates to the game. So you all enjoy your stained glass and new colored fences!! And don't worry in just another 9 months we are going to add rabbits and the clown fish to the game!! And after just a few short decades and 200 skin packs later we plan on having the entire 1.8 update out!! WHOO HOOO!!!!!
And i just love how around the same time that embarrassing update FINALLY came out u guys releases the GREEK MYTHOLOGY Mashup pack. Which included a GREEK Themed world built ENTIRELY FROM SCRATCH by 4J employees. It said that right in the description, just so you know 4J steve that basically says to me (and MANY others) that instead of worrying about releasing new biomes and new features into your version you would rather spend months and months making all of this fancy and utterly useless Skin and texture packs, just so you guys can turn out all of our pockets for some more easy money. I play with a lot of PC players and many of them ask me from time to time if the console version is worth buying yet. I always tell them the Truth which is NO! I tell them about how 4J only cares about and releases pointless skin/texture packs just to rake in more money off of us, and how you guys constantly claim to be working on real updates for the game, yet somehow if we are LUCKY we might get 1 REAL update per YEAR...
