Tell me how:
1) Minecraft is better for the Xbox. Where are the mods, better controls, texture packs and map editors? Sounds like you've chosen Xbox, not PC, and Minecraft with thumbsticks is nothing but hilarity.
2) How FEAR and Far Cry were better games on the consoles, and how they had better, more responsive and faster controls than a mouse/keyboard.
Why not the same as PC, you say? Because consoles cannot possibly match the controls of a PC, and that limits the game / what you can do extraordinarily. As a result, all games that are on consoles but started on PC are dumbed down so little children on consoles could play them. For example, why do you think health has been taken away from first person shooters? It's so those little children will be able to shoot their enemies from the side and kill them before they have the chance to turn around (dem slow joysticks!). Look at Call of Duty from 2003, then look at Fail Warfare / Black Ops now. You can shoot through walls and you can kill anyone with almost any weapon with 1-2 hits. Not to mention the hitbox was designed to make it easier for these little children to achieve headshots at a much easier rate.
We real gamers who are the reason why these companies have the money to make consoles in the first place (the reason why they are so successful) are getting a giant middle finger up our ass every day by these game-makers who are supposed to be loyal to us. If they could put a series on the consoles without changing ANYTHING (dumbing it down), then I would have no complaints. But alas, in this dark and twisted world, that's not a truth we can enjoy, and that's why we PC gamers (not you, apparently) hate the damned consoles. This hate obviously doesn't include the retro consoles, just mainly Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the dreaded Wii who REALLY started this whole Kinect/Move/casual mess in the first place.

And I am confused on how they were "fixed".

Okay. I've had it with PC Elitests. I've read through this entire thread and I've seen about 5 intelligent posts. The rest is a bunch of dimwits throwing insults at each other for no ****ing reason. Let me go through all the half assed exuses for arguments as to why this shouldn't happen that I've seen so far.
-Now Microsoft owns Minecraft!!1!!111!
No. Just no. Where the **** did you get that idea from? Is your brain up your ass? Seriously. No. Microsoft doesn't own just any game that comes to it's console. In fact, it probably owns less than 10% of the games that come to it's console. There is literally nothing Microsoft can do to Mojang or how they develop the game.
-Now the forums will get flooded with 12-year-old Halo and CoD fans!!!!!111!1!!!
It already is, you ignorant dumbshits. I can bet you that 70% of the users on this forum are under the age of 17. Any time you see someone post something to the effect of "kool mOdz!!1! her iz 4 u!!!" chances are that their testicles haven't descended more than a millimeter and that they play first person shooters all the time. Also, the assumption that everyone, or even a sizeable fraction, of people on Xbox Live are like this has no merit and is simply ignorance and dumb****ery.
-Minecraft won't get updated any more because the Xbox version will be holding it back!!!1!
Yet again. Simply, no. When transferring Minecraft over to the Xbox, the only modifications that will need to be made to the code are changing the way you control your character. And this only needs to be done once. Notch will simply keep writing the game he normally would and then the people at Mojang who are responsible for the Xbox version will basically copy/paste the new code into their version of the game's files. It'll take a whole 5 minutes longer than the PC version to develop! Wow! That'll definitely hold it back!
-You have to use the Kinect?!?!?!?!? WTF?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
No. You don't. It's controller compatible. lrn2commonsense and also, lrn2lookupmoreinfo
-Why is this only for the Xbox?!?!?!? WTF?!?!?!?!?!?
Because Microsoft could pay a ****ton more than Sony, and have a lesser history of being hacked.
-Minecraft isn't an indie game anymore!!!!!
Yes. It is. It's soley being made by Mojang, which is a completely independent company. It's just going to be spreading out to more than just PC/Mac gamers so it can make more money for future development.
Overall, this is only a positive thing for the community and Mojang. Anyone who complains about this is simply a PC Elitest who's too ignorant to even think about what they're saying and just spewing insults out at people they don't even know.
I apologise for the vulgar language in this post, however it was neccessary to get my point across.
