This is the list of features exclusive to Console Edition.
The Mansion in the 1.3-1.4 (TU7-TU11) Tutorial World.
- Mini games
- Tumble mini-game
- Battle mini-game
- Glide mini-game
- World types
- Large, medium and small option due to the lack of infinite worlds (Xbox One and PS4 along with Classic).
- Biome Scale
- Small, medium, and large option. The small option is the default due to the lack of infinite worlds, so one world can have more biomes.
- There is a "Find Balanced Seed" option, selected by default, which makes the game randomly select seeds that have a better variety of biomes.
- Superflat Interface
- An interface for creating superflat worlds.
- The Nether
- Has limited size, and is slightly larger with a larger world size.
- The Nether-Overworld portal ratio is larger depending on world size: 1:3 in Classic and Small; 1:6 in Medium; and 1:8, like other versions of Minecraft, in Large.
- The edge of this dimension is made of bedrock.
- The Nether is hollow, with a flat ground, when using a superflat world.
- The End
- The maximum number of end gateway portals is four, rather than twenty.
- Each end gateway portal leads to only one island, which is as big as the main island. One of the four outer islands is guaranteed to spawn an end city.
- The size does not change with regard to world size. Even on Classic, the islands are so far apart that they are all on different Maps.
- Each of the five islands are surrounded by invisible walls, making it impossible to go between them without the use of end gateways.

randomTickSpeed and some others with an interface.
