GAH. Got all excited and then the Switch version isn't updated yet. :(

Hopefully soon, though!

I checked last night, my W10 version is still at 1.15 so my account hasn't been migrated yet I guess. Hopefully I can check out the Better Together update tonight. If it's all up to parity feature-wise with the Java Edition then I'm moving over to the W10 version and leaving Java behind for good!

My new version clicked over from being £16 to free in the store this morning.

So I've installed it on the Xbox One my kids use. All sorted and ready for them returning home from school.

However I've kept the old version on there as the minigames are sadly not transferring over.

So i've only played Minecraft on PS4. I've had it on Windows 10 but only ever played solo.

Now with this update I see servers to join.. man what the HELL is going on?! This is totally overwhelming.

The new version doesn't have the minigames. So if you or your family like those it's worth keeping.

Right now it's digital only, but I'd be shocked if the retail versions of Xbox One Edition (and Switch Edition) weren't eventually replaced with this.

There is a new retail version coming November 7 (alongside XB1X)

$40 and includes the SDGP as well as Chinese Mythology Mashup, Natural Texture Pack, Biome Settlers skins, Battle and Beasts Skins, Campfire Tales skins

It'll take a few days for everyone to have their free one. Mine was showing the price yesterday.

But when I clicked on the price today it then told me I already owned it.

I haven't played this game since... 2012 I believe.

I might get the Switch release when it gets the Better Together update. Though I might not play for long as I'm very excited for Dragon Quest Builders 2.

The new inventory and crafting will take some getting used to on Xbox.

Also, a lot of things are "broken" now, which have long not been functioning on PC like my AFK fishing system. I realize this was only a matter of time, but I'll miss the convenience.

Got the update for Android.

Can play once but if I close the application and reopen it, I get a message saying that a licence couldn't be found for the game and closes it.

I bought it from Amazon App Store

**never mind I had to re-download it from the store and it installed the update**

Great OT. Though I think you should edit in "Java Version" to the "Not Supported" picture. In addition, since it is a Minecraft OT, maybe include instructions on how people can redeem their Windows 10 version for free if they have Minecraft Java Edition.

Have Java Edition? How to Redeem your free copy of Minecraft for Windows 10 and be Better Together!

Step 1: Login to your Mojang account: https://account.mojang.com/.
Step 2: If you are not redirected, go to: https://account.mojang.com/me
Step 3: Under the header "Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition", click the button titled "Claim your free copy"
Step 4: Click the "Redeem" button or copy the Gift Code, open the Windows Store, Click the 3 Menu Dots and select "Redeem a Code",
Step 5: Enjoy your free version of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition... which is now Better Together

The java version of MC for some reason took a lot of resources to run well. I tried making a frakenstein pc so that my son could play and it was an absolute hog. I had to add a medium range GPU from a few years back to get 30 fps.

And do we know what features does the 4k update provide, aside from 4k output and HDR?

Itíll be good to be on a platform that is way more efficient. Has me hopeful for the SDGP, which pretty much looks like Sonic shaders but that was pretty poor performing even on fast PCs

Someone would have to buy a Realms to get true cross play. I'm open to doing so, although we'd probably want some sort of consensus on seeds, game modes, etc.

Yep, from what I've read it seems like buying a Realm is the best way for all of us to "play together".

If we are taking opinions, then I personally prefer a survival server! Creative gets boring to me after a while, I honestly find hunting for building mats half the fun of the game and survival gives food farming a purpose.

No, 10 friends (plus you) or 2 friends (plus you), so 3 or 11 users total.

Same, however I really like the current server's hybrid setup where you can switch between the two modes in the spawn city. Having access to creative was handy at times when I lost all my stuff very stupidly or when I needed Elytras because I spent 2 hours looking for one only to have an Enderman spawn on top of me, already angry somehow, and knock me into the void. Having to make the trip back to spawn made making the switch a non-trivial choice.

I assume we could still do this on a Realm with command blocks?

Also, despite the fact that I never saw more than 5 other people online in GAFLand at a time (usually it was just me or 1 other person) I don't like the limit of 11 people. Especially since this new update is likely to draw interest from lots of people looking to play again.

Yeah, they will be. It's only just come out of Beta. I don't know how they're going about recruting more public servers, but I can't imagine it'll be a free-for-all quite yet.

Hopefully soon. I just want a server to build on with tons of people around. The ones now are all mini games and I don't really care for them.

No kidding. There's one of the three that has a survival section on it, but it doesn't seem too popular. I'd kill for just a huge 100-1000 person PvE survival server.

Even PC looks to have moved away from that kind of setup on large servers. I guess there's more money in minigames.

If you can remember the username you used, that can help you upgrade to a Mojang account

Same. I think I bought it the same day it was announced on Slashdot. Yeah, that's how long ago it was. It says that my account has been migrated from the older user-name-based version to the e-mail based version, and I tried feeding it fake information just to make sure it doesn't say this for every e-mail/username combination, but the system isn't sending me any of the password resets I requested. Not sure what's going on.

I bought Minecraft back in alpha days, played the heck out of it and then put it aside for years. Few months ago I felt like giving it a spin again, noticed the account had migrated and I couldn't log in. Had to contact support and dig out the receipt from paypal to prove I had bought the game before I got my old account back.
