    But it exists.
    It's called Bedrock Edition and it is Windows 10 exclusive.

    It is actually Xbox One X master machine that has been held back by Nintendo crap.

    Edit: Switch is not crap, sorry. It is good for Fifa 18.

    You do realize games like BoTW exist right? The Tegra SoC in the Switch I would assume is more than enough. Then again, not sure how a C++ rewrite of Minecraft would really handle shaders like this.

    Honestly, who really cares? You can polish a turd, it's still going to be a turd.

    Announcing the Cloud Edition.

    Nothing is holding back PC. If they wanted to make a PC only version, they could have have made it.

    Well this already exists for java, and has for years. Dunno about shaders and such for bedrock but there's HD texture packs there too.
    Honestly just a complete waste of time and effort, i'm glad they realized that. They should be pouring 100% of their manpower into bedrock's mod API. That's the game changer.

    Anyone who has a problem with Minecraft's graphics won't be swayed by a 4k texture pack and shaders. So the project was just pointless.

    Not true.

    I do not like the way Minecraft looks. I would have given the game another go with the Super Duper Graphics.

    I don't even have a problem playing NES games on a tube tv, but for some reason minecraft attacks my eyes worse than any given Virtual Boy kiosk ever did. The only thing harder for me to really watch is some high level classic doom speedrunning.

    Good. Sick of Minecrapped. I've been hearing about it for nearly 10 years.

    Bad, actually. Because you will be hearing and seeing the bad looking version of it for at least another nearly 10 years.

    Mods can't do what they were showing and who would care what a console bricker says? Hah.

    I think people don't understand what the project was. The team was trying to reconstruct the entire graphics engine to support the super duper graphics without destroying the cross platform game it has become. It wasn't simply just a shaderpack anyone could install

    Apparently they can't do what they were showing either, so mods win out in the end. Not that it makes much difference to me, I had my fill of Minecraft a long, long time ago.

    America's heart, she's a beaut.
    That's the thing, they should've sacraficed 4k for shaders, it's friggin' Minecraft. 4k pixels that are ankle high won't look any better in 4k while better lighting would go a long way.

    Glad they will never(?) release it...

    It would make Minecraft another "remastered" piece of junk (to say the least).

    Minecraft is better as it was originally intended without fancy SuperDuperHiResGraphicsCrap.
