Now there's a lot to take in! So here's what I understand (guessing!) so far:
Xbox 360: It will be it's own version, just without all the features of the PC/One. Of course it will have (for a while) new features added, but it won't be able to handle "some" of the new features (probably the 'most wanted'). Also can the 360 worlds be transferred to the PC/One? Possibly... if the save files are the same format. We'll see. Can the PC/One worlds be transferred to the 360? 1- Why, beings how the PC/One can run circles around the 360? 2- Dream on.
PC: This will be the 'premier' and most up-to-date version of TM, with all the bells and whistles. It will not have built-in controller support (as that can't be assumed), but use keyboard/mouse instead (more mouse than keyboard hopefully) and there's no reason it shouldn't have the same Easy Crafting. There's always various utilities out there that lets you use a ps3/ps4 or 360/One controllers if you want.
One: This will also be the 'premier' version of TM, but updates may (or may not) be a bit slower coming out and not quite as often. It 'should' be able to keep up with the PC version though. Basically, except for the control scheme, it should be the same as the PC. You'll probably
be able to transfer One worlds to the PC, but not vice-versa due to MS's TOS. (Since I have a One, I can't wait!)
ps4: (I can hear the ps4 fanboys screams from here.) IF
this ever happens, it will be the same as the One. You will not
be able to transfer 360/PC/One worlds to a ps4- plan on starting a fresh, new one.
Just remember that the consoles have strict guidelines as to what goes on them (and how), the PC doesn't.
Anyway, those are my 'guesses' for now. Only Craig and the development team know, and at this point I don't think they can
know all the details yet. But I'm sure they'll let us know, so hang in there.
