*orgasms*
And what's up with the quality of the picture? ;/
"There is a world we cannot see, a world where all our imagination, dreams and fantasies lay true with no limitations and endless freedom. It is there as we speak, and it will always be there. Our world will never be able to connect to the other, but we will know that it is there, beyond this world. Those who you have lost in this world is there, and you will meet them when you are no longer part of our current world."

Playing on the 360 is now nearly the same as the PC (Build wise)

I played around with it. It seems to also have a graphical change. Looks a bit cartoony to me. I've never played the PC version so I'm not sure. Tried map seed "1.8.2 Test" and got 3/4 ocean, medium land mass with arctic and swamp. Northeast had a small land with one village near plains. Deleted. I'll try tutorial and creative later.

Ok, this may be a silly or stupid question, and it may have been answered elsewhere. But I haven't been able to get a solid yes or no answer anywhere I've looked. Are Villagers coming with the Villages?

Going by the PC version, villagers were added in the full version, which was 1.0. The latest XBOX 360 version, as you know, is Beta 1.8.2. So, my answer is, yes, there will be villagers, but not yet.
