I think it will continue for at least a few more years. Eventually people will migrate away from the older gen consoles and at some point it won't be monetarily feasible to continue support for the older consoles. That's probably not going to happen for a while though.

Minecon is not an inexpensive experience, even if it is in your hometown.
Last year the tickets were $130 US dollars per person. You also had to be prepared to purchase the tickets within the first 30 seconds or so of them going on sale. Yes, they sell out that quickly. So even if it's in the building across the street where you live, there's no guarantee that you will get tickets in the first place.
If you do happen to get a ticket, you also have to consider the money that you will need for food, parking, and any memorabilia that you want to buy while you are there. None of those things are cheap.
If it's not in your home town, then you will of course have to pay for transportation (driving, flying, train, etc.) and hotel accommodations as well.
Here's a recommendation that I have. If you are 18 years old or above, and you are able to at least afford the travel, hotel, and food, it is possible that you can attend Minecon for free. When the announcement for Minecon is made, go to the Mojang website and fill out a request form to work as an agent at the convention. If you are selected, you will have to pay a $60 US dollar deposit for your ticket which will be refunded to you after the convention. You will have to work one of the two days of the convention, but the other day is yours to do with as you please. I did this for the 2016 Minecon and it worked out rather nicely.

Neither shields or banners are in PE / Windows 10 Edition yet. The only things that you can hold in your off-hand slot currently are maps, and arrows. If you have arrows with different potion effects on them in your inventory, whatever arrow you are holding in your off-hand is what will be used.

i have buyed two version of win 10 edition recently for my teen boys playing MC as well. i have the same problem with booth accounts as "easy_ezed" already stated.
since my boys want to have exentensions, mods, and the java edition, they can not use win 10 edition. so i am wondering how i can migrate / upgrade their accounts to a full mojang account with full functionality.
i am really not sure if uninstalling MC W10 edt. as adviced from "Greymagic27" is doing the job, cause, why / how shall the website recognize the type of game i have purchased ?
thank for you help in advance.
There isn't any migration or upgrade option of going from Windows 10 Edition to the PC/Java version. You will just have to purchase two licenses (one for each of your boys) for the Java version of the game and install that.
You don't need to uninstall the Windows 10 Edition, you will just have two different versions of the game running on the computer instead.

It says right there in the chat window that someone just joined. Also, if nobody else was ever in your world, why were you sending a chat message that says "Well I'm only going to be in this world for a few seconds"

There are two versions of Minecraft that run on Windows 10. Unfortunately, they are not compatible with each other.
There is the Windows 10 Edition which is based off of Pocket Edition.
There is the PC/Java version which is what DanTDM plays 99.9% of the time.
There are mini-game servers out there that are compatible with Minecraft Windows 10 Edition (pe.mineplex.com) You just have to search for Pocket Edition servers in order to find them.
If you want the exact same thing that DanTDM uses, then you will have to purchase the PC/Java version of Minecraft to use the other servers.

The only issue I have with the new snapshot is the change to beds. I'm okay with having different colors for the beds, but you can now no longer craft the bed with different colors or wool, all three pieces need to be the same color. So it used to be if you started out in an area where there were only two white sheep and one black, you could kill them all and still make a bed. You can't do that now. It's just a minor annoyance, but you should be able to craft some sort of "default" bed if you don't have a matching set of wool.

You don't have to purchase content from the store if you don't want to. Mojang is not stopping you from using the free resources that have been around for years. If you can find free maps, skins, resource packs and behavior packs you will still be able to use them.
The store is really no different than it was before. Instead of just being able to buy skins and resource packs, they are now offering other content created by the community. HOWEVER, that content has be be sold by an actual business that is registered with Microsoft.
So, you can still use the free stuff that you can find, but if you want a map made by one of these companies that make them professionally you can purchase it if you want to.
My big concern is with the new coin system that they are going to. You now have to purchase virtual currency and make your purchases that way. I would rather keep things the way they are. I'd rather buy something for the exact dollar amount than purchase it with some arbitrary value in some virtual coinage, especially if they only sell them in fixed quantities where you have to buy more than what you actually need.

I just wanna say, it's not gonna be in the U.K. This year because of everything that's happening over there, it would be disastrous. I wonder if there will be any bombings if it is in the UK. I will imagine that it will be somewhere it hasn't been yet, it's already been in NYC, so that's ruled out, its been in Orlando, so that's also ruled out, I think it should be in a different country than USA, like Australia or Canada.

rplatham has a good point! Regarding finding particular biomes... I had a lot of difficult finding them all at one time. Maybe you know about temp relationships and are just having bad luck, I’ll mention this anyway just in case. Reference this: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Biome
Tips for finding all biomes!
From what I understand certain biomes don't generate next to each other and it's based on temperature relationships. For example, a swamp land or roofed forest is more likely to be next to a jungle than say Taiga is. I used to find myself bouncing a lot between hills/extreme hills and Taiga with the occasional plains until I realized there are relationships. In your case, if you’re looking for a snowy biome, you should thoroughly explore extreme hills, stone beach, gravel hills etc. when you find them. There are 3 other strategies I’ve found useful.
- If you are a mass rail / train station maker, think about doing this near the build height limit. I create my rails going in various directions as a means to explore and create connections to various biomes simultaneously. I create a train station like 4 blocks below build limit above my current base. Then I start in a given direction laying wood half slabs and rail with powered rail every 24 blocks. Turn rendering all the way up so you can see. You can see a lot of biomes this way that you might have missed by exploring on the ground. If you want to explore an area below as a potential train stop, take some gravel and drop them off the edge until you have a way down then stand on the gravel pile and shovel you’re way to the bottom. Jump / build back up to get back or build a station with an up/down mechanism at that location if you like.
- Use the nether! The nether is 8 times smaller than the overworld. So, let’s say you want to travel a very long distance quickly, you can reduce your trip by 8x by using the nether and porting back. For example, build a rail which takes you thru the nether 1k blocks in a given direction and build a portal at each end. Those portals should be around 8k blocks apart in the overworld!
- Find the ocean. Once you’ve found it, circle the entire shore line. Ocean biomes could be adjacent to any biome. I’ve often found every biome by simply following the shores in a boat.

This is one of my early game goals for new worlds. I make my farms with two modes, auto kill and xp farm (where I kill). I simply have a drop mechanism with a switch that moves a piston in the way if I don't want them to drop too far (xp farm mode). The piston stops them from falling an extra couple of blocks, leaving them with 1/2 heart. Consider too that with a looting sword if you want a ton of arrows, bones, armor etc. quickly, you might want to kill them instead of standing there while they drop/die or drown die, or whatever your grinder method is.

then they should also remove all uses of "Looting" and "Fortune" enchanments too... since that is a form of duplication... and i guess they should remove vine growth, crops, fishing, mining anything, trees, water, lava, chickens, cows, and anything else that drops more than one item example would be the ender dragon egg... since there is only one in the world...
Looting and Fortune are legitimate enchants added to the game.
Duplication glitches are not a feature and can have knock ons.
