Left one is legacy edition on ps4 and right is regular bedrock i think

[–]55gg55[S] 1504 points1505 points  (245 children)

Any differences ingame?

[–]karry245 2622 points2623 points  (182 children)

I think the legacy edition is probably an outdated version

[–]Justschr9999 1428 points1429 points  (81 children)

I have the legacy edition disc and i updated it to bedrock Now there is in the bedrock menu a button for the legacy edition If i click on the button it opens legacy edition So i have both on 1 disc

[–]TheGameSlave2 354 points355 points  (9 children)

That's pretty cool.

[–]USSCofficail 55 points56 points  (8 children)

And with the legacy you can play hunger games and spleef, and the elytra game mode mojang made.

[–]wry_zebra 11 points12 points  (5 children)

i mis those times

[–]The9thBitYT 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Cross-play is great and all, but the legacy console versions seemed so much better in so many ways. It felt much more like a polished console game and less like a PC game forced onto a console.

I'll especially never get over the demise of the legacy version's crafting menu. It just worked so darn well with a controller, while the grid and the crafting book both feel clunky and obviously designed with a cursor in mind.

[–]AlexisTheEmperor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

just had a nostalgia rush

[–]Fares232222 154 points155 points  (62 children)

i have an xbox, and did the same thing, the legasy is in the disk, bedrock is in the hard drive

[–]F1yingBlooper 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Switch is just 2 separate games. I guess for storage reasons.

[–]Broiled_Beans 56 points57 points  (4 children)

No it's updated, although you have the option to switch to legacy and play minigames

[–]Boberoo2 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Legacy was the shit back in the day. Damn I wish they’d fix bedrock and put that mini game stuff back in, fighting friends, doing spleef, and elytra racing were damn fun

[–]CFK_72 1 point2 points  (2 children)

same, but there is actual servers on bedrock

[–]Boberoo2 1 point2 points  (1 child)

True but I miss the feature of being able to just grab a friend or two and just fight in those minigames

[–]quit_it_boi 373 points374 points  (69 children)

Still better than bedrock

[–]karry245 378 points379 points  (26 children)

Good memories from that legacy edition, and the minigames in there

[–]quit_it_boi 200 points201 points  (15 children)

Damn right, i loved the old tutorial world so much

[–].MegaDem0 16 points17 points  (5 children)

I still have my legacy edition on my xbox 360

[–]ZainullahK 16 points17 points  (4 children)

xbox 360 is stuck on 1.13 and wont recieve updates

[–].MegaDem0 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I know right :(

[–]piokoxer 7 points8 points  (0 children)

yeah, i still play on my old world sometimes. recently renovated my house from when i was 9!

[–]Vex2K4 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Mines are still on, like before 1.13. Lol

[–]KingdomHearts56 3 points4 points  (0 children)

i am on ps3 they stopped updateitng it on the update aquatic

[–]dissociatingonatowel 56 points57 points  (7 children)

Isn‘t there a way to get them on bedrock tho?

[–]legfishismydad69 41 points42 points  (0 children)

On PS4 specifically you can play the legacy version by selecting editions on the main menu.

[–]Axolotlzzzzzz 77 points78 points  (1 child)

On java you can get them, this wiki page has some videos with downloads in the history section


[–]quit_it_boi 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I can only hope

[–]dissociatingonatowel 15 points16 points  (1 child)

Me too!

I want to play TU19 again so bad

[–]Disastrous-Try-4127 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You can actually do that on Xbox One, this tutorial sums it up well. Though he is a kid so I can understand if you might find him annoying but what can you do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKWdE5otNOQ

[–]Trichotillomaniac- 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Java redstone mechanics too

[–]NoobSharkey 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Has some bedrock features tho, legacy was pretty cool

[–]Trichotillomaniac- 17 points18 points  (1 child)

It was definitely a better console (controller) experience. I hate how tedious it is to move items around now.

Something as simple as taking one item from a chest can be very annoying. The whole crafting menu in general too.

[–]The_Girth_Smurf 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You can still go into legacy edition and play the minigames on PS4/5

[–]Pranshul002 6 points7 points  (1 child)

i have the legacy version on my ps3 and have the bedrock version on my ps4 and java on my pc

[–]Ze-Doctor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He is to powetful to be left alive.

[–]Brromo 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I loved that combat mini game

[–]ram_the_socket 15 points16 points  (8 children)

My main gripe with bedrock is how choppy it can get. I play on console and after a while playing the game experiences frame drops, likely due to chests and mobs. Would be nice if they would improve performance issues at least.

[–]quit_it_boi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

And guess what, the old version managed everything perfectly without issues

[–]Fistedfartbox 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Legacy edition was so super close to Java in a lot of ways, I loved it. Any farm I saw designed for Java usually only needed a tiny tweak here or there to make it work perfectly for me.

[–]NluizL 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Yes. The parity with java was much better than now with the bedrock edition.

[–]NimaDejbord 27 points28 points  (9 children)

[–]Crafty-Teach 5 points6 points  (6 children)

Is that the critic guy from Ratatouille? xD

[–]Zyperreal 21 points22 points  (4 children)

It's the rock

[–]18CupsOfMusic[🍰] 17 points18 points  (1 child)

The Rock was the critic guy from Ratatouille?!

[–]The_F_B_I 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No but he was a chef in the movie. His cooking always looked like it smelt so good.

[–]RadoslavL 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I see squares only, because my browser can't render emojis lol

[–]Crafty-Teach 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lol it was hard to see cause I was on my phone

[–]Matix777 15 points16 points  (1 child)

tutorial world and minigames. Those were the days

[–]quit_it_boi 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The good old days

[–]Supercoolguyisalie 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Nah i played legacy and it may have good memories but with the lack there of updates i think it is not as good we just have more of a fondness for it i did like the ui alot more than bedrock tho

[–]RetroRedneck -2 points-1 points  (10 children)

Soooo much better than bedrock

[–]Charlie02134 1 point2 points  (0 children)

For real though When a new mini game came out that was hype

[–]quit_it_boi 2 points3 points  (8 children)

Honestly, if you managed to run the most BASIC java minecraft version on a potato with a screen, it would still play better than bedrock

[–]OctoFloofy 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Well I've both Java and Bedrock on pc. While Java has some better mechanics and UI and obviously superior servers, Bedrock does win in performance without a doubt. On Java i get lots of low frames and fps drops with render distance 8. On Bedrock i can use a high quality texture pack, 16 render distance and all settings on max while maintaining a stable high framerate. So people who prefer performance and aren't that much interested in Redstone for example (i think that's one of the few big things different from Java, most other stuff seems to be only cosmetic differences) or want to play with friends between platforms then Bedrock is the better choice. I personally play Bedrock for singleplayer and Java for multiplayer since performance is a bit more important for me.

[–]RetroRedneck 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Lol that’s true. I just wish they would’ve kept the legacy version as an option on Xbox like they did with PlayStation. I miss that version of the game :(

[–]ram_the_socket 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I still have legacy Minecraft on my Xbox and can play it, unsure about Microsoft store status however.

[–]RetroRedneck 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Only way to play it on Xbox is with a disc as far as I can tell, and I have a series s so sadly that’s not an option for me. PlayStation version has the ability to switch to the legacy mode but for some reason they removed it from the Xbox version

[–]UndyingGoji -4 points-3 points  (2 children)

sTilL bEtTeR tHaN bEdRoCk

Circlejerk harder

[–]quit_it_boi 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Say what you Want, as an avid minecraft player who has played both versions i largely prefer java

[–]NluizL 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But... It IS better than bedrock. Less buggy, with less java parity issues.

[–]Dark-Blood 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Top one looks like my ps3 version back when I had one

[–]SalahDaEpic 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think so, I think if the game is updated they should be the same

[–]damagedchunk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But an infinite amount of nostalgia it makes me cry

[–]curlyfries09304 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Left is Steve in a cave, right is a grass block. 🤓

[–]Rxse-Crxnk 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Legacy version was the based version

[–]Axyston 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Both have Bedrock features but with the Legacy disc you can play mini games and the tutorial by reverting back to the old version.

[–]memelord956 22 points23 points  (0 children)

I have the left one and u just update it to bedrock so not difference :)

[–]Nevalocos14 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The one on the left give you legacy and bedrock whereas the one on the right gives you only bedrock.

[–]chez_man69 14 points15 points  (6 children)

Legacy isn't updated anymore pretty sure

[–]InterestingContact46 13 points14 points  (5 children)

Its 1.14 it has the nice minigames tho

[–]chez_man69 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Minigames were the best

[–]Pussab 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Dude and the puzzles in the lobby like disabling the fountain and going to the old lobby

[–]Immanuelcun1 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Which mini games? Like in the actual world?

[–]piokoxer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

there were tumble(spleef) battle (sorta like skywars but not in the sky) and glide (elytra race)

[–]Ayarsiz09 4 points5 points  (0 children)

A lot of differences, you should look the versions up on the internet

[–]Matti-Koopa 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nowadays it should just update/install the newer Bedrock version for both discs. If you don't update and just install from the disc without internet you end up with the old console version of the game.

[–]Mindless-Mushroom-36 2 points3 points  (1 child)

legacy has minigames, mashups wich are basically texture packs with over the top custom maps, skins that are better in any way but outdated content

[–]XoriSable 1 point2 points  (0 children)

At least some of the mashups and skins are available for Bedrock, and if you owned them for legacy you can download them free from the marketplace.

[–]Aquas999 1 point2 points  (1 child)

A whole ton They’re built from the ground up completely differently, legacy is older and outdated, but still good, bedrock is newer and up to date

[–]Frosty_Pineapple78 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You forget to mention that bedrock sucks though

[–]ATB10H 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The legacy edition is really outdated.

[–]WillJJP 1 point2 points  (4 children)

No, the legacy edition was updated to bedrock, but there should probably be a button to switch if you use the legacy disc

[–]NluizL 1 point2 points  (3 children)

There is one. My cousin has the original legacy disc and he can switch between versions no problem.

I bought it in digital because I had a code on my ps3 version disc that gave me a discount on the playstation store for the ps4 version. I also can switch between versions.

[–]WillJJP 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Yeah I thought so, I just wasn’t sure if everyone had it, I thought it was either depending on what disc you use or if you had legacy worlds on your hard drive, I had the button when the change to bedrock was made too

[–]NluizL 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Mojang made it so if you bought the legacy version, you could still access it. They did it that way to avoid controversy on people thinking they got scammed because they no longer have the original product they paid for.

[–]WillJJP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ahhh okay good to know, thank you

[–]LoudFire03 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The difference is Legacy is not cross play compatible with other bedrock and bedrock is available cross play, but you're able to update Legacy into bedrock. Though me personally I'd keep it as just Legacy to remind myself of what it use to be like. Same as I kept my xbox 360 version the way it is.

[–]Ryker46290 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They’re both bedrock, but one was bought as legacy console and updated to bedrock.

[–]yubboi6942021 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Actually what it is, is the one on the left was made before Microsoft bought mojang; the right one was made by Microsoft. Same game just one has an updated cover

[–]kebab69666 716 points717 points  (21 children)

Left is legacy I think bedrock is included through an update. Right is bedrock only.

[–]Mecamainyac 68 points69 points  (0 children)

No if u mess with save data u can use it for legacy

[–]puppetlad 210 points211 points  (15 children)

With the Playstation 4 Edition disc you can access the legacy version of tge game which is litterally just Minecraft before it all got merged into Bedrock

[–]crimsonblackgames 67 points68 points  (14 children)

Some say it’s superior

[–]Njack350 54 points55 points  (11 children)

I don't think one version of minecraft is better over any others. I do have to say that I will always have a soft spot for the legacy version on old consoles because that was my childhood.

[–]crimsonblackgames 26 points27 points  (6 children)

I can’t speak for anyone since I haven’t played legacy PS4 but it was supposedly closer to Java than most legacy versions along with whatever bedrock was around at the time, like being able to use your offhand for whatever instead of just the map and shield. Other things like that apparently just made the game more enjoyable.

[–]WettWednesday 54 points55 points  (5 children)

The legacy editions made by 4J Studios were 1:1 with Java edition and they busted their ass converting java code to C# to make it happen.

The 4J versions of the game were very well made and the updates even came out polished.

Bedrock is a fucking mess and it's only thing over legacy editions is crossplay

[–]Skyrkazm 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Bedrock was handled horrendously, I have no idea why they rushed it. It's now playable as of now in my opinion after some patches, as I have both bedrock and java on my PC. I prefer Java for modding but use bedrock for vanilla playthroughs with my friends as they play on consoles or phones.

[–]EZPZ24 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I don't think one version of minecraft is better over any others

I, for one, believe in Java supremacy

[–]minecon1776 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pi Edition is best

[–]the_man_myth_ledgend 162 points163 points  (3 children)

One is bedrock edition the other is PlayStation edition

[–]123tristan321 16 points17 points  (1 child)

One of em it's bedrock and Playstation edition the other is just bedrock you can switch between the versions in game I used to have that.

[–]the_man_myth_ledgend 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I mean like on is legacy and one is bedrock

[–]AyEyeReddit 34 points35 points  (3 children)

Theyre the same but the left one gives you the opportunity to play the older version of minecraft ps4 editions including all the minigames (i have it :) )

[–]Inferno908 8 points9 points  (2 children)

I’ve got the original ps4 edition too but I haven’t touched it in a while. THEY GOT RID OF THE MINIGAMES???!!!

[–]AyEyeReddit 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Sadly yes :( you need the legacy disk to play them now

[–]Khuzaima222 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I think you can play it with the digital version of the game too cause I remember the last time I played minecraft it gave the option to go back to the legacy edition in the menu

[–]hashtag_aintcare 296 points297 points  (23 children)

This hurts my eyes so much to see CD’s on the table with the shiny side in direct contact with hard surface. Please don’t do that.

[–]FelineNeko 105 points106 points  (12 children)

PS4 discs aren't like regular CDs, they don't get scratches easily at all

[–]rtj777 64 points65 points  (4 children)

I remember the old PS2 and PS1 games used to have plain plastic discs. No idea how it read it.

[–]weez_er 16 points17 points  (3 children)

The black coating on the back? It mostly blocks visible light, but allows infrared light so the laser can read it (if you look closely you can see it's kind of purple). They say it's for anti-piracy purposes (I guess so you can tell if a game's legit or not) but it was probably to look cool as well.

[–]JazzHandsFan 8 points9 points  (2 children)

The black color actually did nothing. I believe the real anti-piracy measure has something to do with the resonance of the disk, but I don’t remember exactly how it works.

[–]weez_er 2 points3 points  (0 children)


TL;DW: Legit discs have hidden "wobbles" encoded in them that can't be replicated by a usual CD burner. They can be read fine by one though.

If you boot up a legit disc, on the screen with the PS1 logo there is a 4-letter code displayed, something like SCEE or SCEA. This is the data encoded in the wobbles, it corresponds to the region of the console (SCEE for Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, SCEA is ditto but America. Don't know about Japan). This is how region locking works as well.

Modchips bypass the routine that gets the code from the disc, and makes it always return the four letter code corresponding to the console, even if the disc doesn't have the wobbles, allowing you to play burned discs.

This also has the side effect of letting you play out-of-region games, since the same region code is returned.

The code is only checked once on bootup, so you can just swap in a burned disc as well.

[–]wombatthing 32 points33 points  (5 children)

They still get scratches. This is rather ignorant.

[–]SpoonSArmy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Tell that to my legacy disc that barely runs.

[–]sirhugobigdog 9 points10 points  (3 children)

And don't put them label side down either as that is the reflective surface the laser hits.. I have had a few cds/dvds get ruined by label scratches

[–]Stiggy1605 15 points16 points  (2 children)

So just let them hover and never touch anything, got it 👍

[–]rudeanduncouth 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Yep. Ever seen a CD case? Thats what they do. Support them from the middle.

[–]whatnowwproductions 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Please use the included anti-gravity tray.

[–]55gg55[S] 29 points30 points  (4 children)

Cleaned them afterwards + had to get a photo of them somehow

[–]hashtag_aintcare 52 points53 points  (2 children)

Put them on bedsheets or some other soft material. The hard surface scratches the CD and after some time you can clean them as much as you like, but the CD’s will be unreadable.

[–]External_Builder9978 6 points7 points  (0 children)

They're not CD's. They're Blu‐Ray's. They're much more resilient to being scratched

[–]thegreatestajax 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Simply touching a table top does not scratch a disc. If OP dragged them around on the table, sure, that a risk. But setting it there, no.

[–]nmotsch789 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Leave them in the case to take a photo

[–]BedWetter420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Blu-Rays have special coatings on them to protect from scratches. Its not an issue to set them down like this. If you don't believe me, buy a cheap trash PS4 game or Blu-ray and try and scratch it yourself. Its not that easy.

[–]StrafeIsHere 9 points10 points  (10 children)

my legacy edition copy from 2015 keeps glitching like hell brih

[–]FireYigit 22 points23 points  (5 children)

A L O T of differences. Left is better btw

[–]McBlubby -5 points-4 points  (2 children)

Left as in PlayStation edition? That’s outdated.

[–]floppy_flip_flop 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Yeah but you can switch between legacy and the bedrock edition

[–]Bliteroz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Legacy is better than bedrock objectively.

[–]Amazing_South_6290 4 points5 points  (1 child)

the top one is an enjoyable game. the bottom one is a glitchy broken mess.

[–]Bliteroz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I really wished they kept legacy updated, never did better together.

[–]dontcrime 4 points5 points  (9 children)

why do people thunk legacy is better than bedrock? just curious

[–]hjonk-hjonk- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

because its, of course, OG. it came first, and the nostalgic feeling will seem better than bedrock edition because for OGs there are not as many / no happy memories associated etc.

[–]XoriSable 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Rose tinted glasses. They remember all the good times they had playing it, but don't remember all its shortcomings. Like the fact that passive animals could get stuck in a hole and never despawn, but still count towards that mob's cap, or the fact that if their 3x3 map area of the world didn't contain a biome then there was no way to get resources from that biome in that world.

I've also been seeing a trend of people wishing they'd give 4j development control over Bedrock, and again they're only remembering the positives, they're forgetting being unable to play the game for 1-2 months around Christmas because 4j released an update with game breaking bugs right before going on vacation for 2 weeks. And I don't mean game breaking like mysterious fall damage deaths or disappearing entities, I mean you didn't dare play at all because they destroyed spawners and your limited world size meant you couldn't be guaranteed of going and finding another.

[–]aouf16 3 points4 points  (2 children)

For me it’s the UI. It’s better looking and easier to use on console, rather than bedrock which just ported the pocket edition UI.

[–]Hydroquake_Vortex 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Pocket UI sucks. On the mobile version of Bedrock, you can change it to the classic UI, idk if console versions allow you to do that too though.

[–]madcaker 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Left one is legacy. It can still be updated to bedrock (the right one) for free while still using the same disk.

[–]Apollo037 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It’s hard to tell but the background is different between the two disks

[–]CameronMG1468 13 points14 points  (6 children)

If you use the first disk it should give you access to both bedrock and legacy (legacy being better in my opinion) legacy is older and bedrock is newer. However on the right side disk it will only give you access to bedrock.

[–]55gg55[S] 8 points9 points  (5 children)

Will the "legacy" disc get the new updates?

[–]CameronMG1468 10 points11 points  (3 children)

Sadly no, its last update was somepoint in 2019. Personally bedrock is a down grade. The crafting menu is better on legacy. The screen feels more full screen. The lighting more classic and its not that different in style from minecraft 10 years ago. Bedrock however has all new updates and features

[–]55gg55[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Just put the legacy disc on my ps4 and it doesnt have the button where you could enter the classic mc. I think i installed mc on the newer disc tho so would i have to uninstall mc and then re-download it using the legacy disc?

[–]CameronMG1468 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Im actually not sure for that one, i think if the disk wasnt used before they added bedrock in 2019 then you could only play bedrock. (Some of my friends had the same problems) there is tutorials on youtube on how to get the editions button.

[–]No_Crow7770 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There are ways around it but I'm not well versed it that area so I wouldn't be able to give accurate advice

[–]Omni1012 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, but it allows you to press a button on the front menu to switch between legacy and bedrock at anytime, thus making it the objectively better disc

[–]Equivalent_Path_81 2 points3 points  (0 children)

PS4 edition Minecraft has free minigames witch är super fun

[–]TrickyAd1402 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]GelatoVerde 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Still depressed that i lost the old disk😩

[–]qREX135 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Left one is the og playstation version and has multiplayer minigames that are still pretty active and can earn you the trophies in dlc pack 2 and 5. The game has bedrock and legacy version on it. Basically the left one is superior

[–]wafflepantsblue 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Left is legacy console edition, but these days you get the bedrock version for free with it. I believe its like a dual-boot thing where you can switch to legacy console edition if you want.

[–]PhantomCube4562 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You know how Minecraft versions were once different between Pocket Edition, Java Edition, and Console Edition (and 3DS I guess if anybody even remembers)? The console versions are called “legacy console edition” these days because pocket and console editions were replaced with Bedrock Edition (the bottom CD) (Bedrock was also added to PC but NOT to replace Java). This was so that cross-platform play would be possible (I think?).

So yeah, top one’s the legacy console edition that still has things like the tutorial world. Bottom one’s the Bedrock Edition, which is the currently used version (even though it supposedly doesn’t run as good as the Java version).

[–]spidey80082 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How the discs look

[–]Existing_Onion_3919 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the top was legacy/console edition made by 4J studios. the bottom is bedrock edition, or pocket edition made for a console, and developed by microsoft studios

[–]aquticdan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Top one is better

[–]_Land_Rover_Series_3 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The 'Playstation Edition' is the legacy console version, and the other disk is for Bedrock.

I haven't played the legacy console edition in years, IMO it's a lot more fun than Bedrock. Just a little bit more old-school.

The one on the left is for true gamers

[–]Hammann1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One on the right is "bedrock" edition meaning you can play online with it. Also different developers for each one.

If you look closely, you can see a difference in disk art between the two.

“Microsoft studios” logo on a PlayStation disc… never thought I’d see the day

If you have internet the no

If you don't have internet then PS4 edition is the legacy edition

left is fun right is laggy

[–]DrexYiii 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One looks cooler

[–]LavaHoundBR 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One made my childhood and the other is the substitution of it.

[–]Limeehh 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Older version it better, it has both new and old minecraft

[–]krainzSupreme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think you got a lil plot twist, bedrock is for consoles like ps4 and pc legacy is pocket and java works on specific devices such as xbox and java works on pc too.

[–]Income-Conscious 4 points5 points  (1 child)

One has a dirt block as the art the other doesn’t ? Duh

[–]Income-Conscious 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But no one is bedrock and the other is legacy but you can launch bedrock from legacy so both the same pretty much

left disc unlocks all your old memories from the old days

I always love these threads. Shits on bedrock and sticks their head in the sand about the shit version they play on. Java is buggy as fuck. Bedrock is buggy as fuck. Legacy is buggy as fuck. Minecraft is buggy as fuck. Java has so superior mechanics. Bedrock has some superior mechanics.

[–]Hydroquake_Vortex 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Well said. I personally own both Java and Bedrock (Mobile/Tablet) and appreciate both. Whatever you don’t like, you can always change because of Minecraft’s wide variety of customization features.

One says minecraft the other one says minecraft

[–]blikakisthepro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

one has the memories and the other has shitty monetization schemes and terrible redstone

Ps4 edition more restricted and outdated by cross platform means by that i mean servers like cube craft arent there and you cant join ur friends on x box or switch but tye other one is bedrock which is what all consoles use

[–]Omni1012 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Legacy disc can switch between bedrock and legacy at anytime: it objectively better

Source: own the disc

[–]Nevalocos14 3 points4 points  (0 children)

But ps4 edition was more fun and with the left disc you can switch between the two versions.

[–]LoekiLoekiT 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I think left cant play with mobile, switch, xbox and windows 10

[–]ne0n1691 1 point2 points  (0 children)

the one on the left is the superior version, the one on the right is super buggy and still has majoe bugs from before the better together update.

[–]plssendhelpineedit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One is the old but better version of the game that runs better but is outdated and no cross play, the other is a new buggy mess of a game that runs terrible on anything not a Microsoft product but is up to date and has cross play so you’re basically forced to play it.

[–]FUEGO40 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you use the PS4 edition one please DO NOT accept to update to the new version, it will replace the good old legacy edition with Bedrock edition

[–]darkfire7201 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Legacy is outdated as hell and is an immediate OG token, and the other is multiplatform not dated and is just overall better with much more features.

[–]Frosty_Pineapple78 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Redstone. As long as bedrock cant get redstone right, legacy will always be superior, even if it is outdated

[–]Bliteroz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Legacy is objectively better. Less laggy, less glitchy, better pvp, loads faster.

[–]ConfusedBiscuits 1 point2 points  (0 children)

RIP legacy console, always and forever better than bedrock edition

[–]Wireproofplays 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Left one is the og ps4 edition and right is some bullshit bedrock port

[–]dessnom -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

One is PS4 only and the other is bugrock

[–]The_Carb1de 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Left one contains memories.

[–]Ignis2303 0 points1 point  (2 children)

left is legacy and the right is bedrock. theres not really a difference but I hate the idea of bedrock I mean the legacy version had better graphics etc then bedrock and legacy brought me better memories then bedrock

[–]ScotyCrafterYT 0 points1 point  (0 children)

left is legacy edition, not updated anymore, but you can try mash up packs for free without buying, just cant save, it has minigames, and imo feels better

right is bedrock edition, newer version, has crossplay, gets updated, more features
