I have been playing Minecraft for 3 years on the Xbox 360 version and I have got every update released,(though a few months later than other editions) but I've watched YouTube and people playing the update Aquatic for 6 MONTHS, And I haven't had it at all, and the "official" release was announced by Mojang a ton of times, and they did a really bad job announcing the real date.
Anyways, I have experienced and know that the neglected Xbox 360 edition has had updates WAY later than PC or PE Or PS or Xbox One, but this is the most confusing as the update was once said it was released in June, then August last Wednesday, and I've waited and didn't get it. It was more confusing when I got 4 updates at different times after I heard about Aquatic, 2 of them for nothing I noticed, and one had the addition of the Super Cute texture pack (Thanks) and one today with the addition of the Han Solo and Super Cute Skin packs. Then while waiting for the the update to finish,I'd literally pray that the update would be the Aquatic, but it wouldn't. I was wondering if the Aquatic update will EVER come to Xbox 360, and I'm also confused since Xbox is owned by Microsoft and Minecraft is also owned by Microsoft, how is Xbox 360 so neglected? Plz respond.
4j said several weeks ago we wouldn't get the aquatic update until they were satisfied that it worked good on legacy edition. What exactly that means is up for debate. The mystery updates this past month are quite weird, theres no changelogs, no word about what they're for afaik. They dont seem to add anything, and they lag my game terribly. Also a lot of world deletion bugs have been reported in the last month, and when I noticed this trend I stopped playing console. Since the aquatic update will be the last major update to console edition on all old gen consoles I'm guessing they want to have it be less buggy than the major updates of the past couple years, and therefore require fewer if any bugfix updates after the fact. If I had to guess I would say that we won't see the 1.13 features until Christmas.
The way they have gone about removing legacy edition from x-one and switch users coupled with the fact that sony didn't lay down for them and take the bedrock deal makes this whole thing kinda suspicious to me, but thats just my opinion. After console basically caught up with java edition at tu31 4j promised that going forward console would be updated shortly after java, and they kept their promise, for the most part, until now. It may just be that they want old gen console to go out with a bang and traditionally Christmas is when we get a major update. Or it may be that Sony (and the rest of us old gen players) are being punished.
The people that were playing aquatic update on youtube six months ago were java players, who can play snapshots, and console players have never been able to do that. I bought java like four months ago now and playing snapshots was cool, but you really wouldn't want to run a survival game in most snapshots anyway. They are generally buggy and unstable. There isn't going to be a part one or part two update like bedrock edition, at least afaik, we will get the whole thing at once like java edition did.
Minecraft Update Aquatic Now available for Xbox 360!!!!
On Sunday, September 16th, 2018, the Update Aquatic has come to my Xbox 360 and PS3 and added alot of mobs and aquatic such. Also the bug fixes were great and the spawn eggs and new minigames are a blast! Other misc...
-Added monster spawner in the creative inventory
-Tridents and its enchantments (although riptide and channeling don't work)
Actually, although the aquatic is here, I think its a dumb and stupid cash grab by Mojang and Microsoft, as they will never give us the new updates, like the Natural disasters update of 2019, and I think its not a scam but want more money by getting a new console for the updates and chucking the old one out the window.
What I'm trying to say here is that it isn't fair that Xbox 360 and PS3 are getting the last update until their obseletion. They just want to get more money for an NT$15000 console, and it's not fair. Why pay for a game and console that you already have, just on a newer console? It's all the same, so Microsoft should give everyone ALL THE UPDATES, it's only fair. Also, (threat to the development team), I might just return my Minecraft and 360, and play Roblox for the rest of my life and become an official Minecraft hater? Huh? Mojang should really do something about this.
