"New crafting system"
The Xbox version of Minecraft has a completely different crafting system compared to the PC version. Instead of dragging and dropping items onto a crafting table, you'll be able to select the final item you want to craft from a list. If you have the right resources then the item is automatically created for you. There's no need to remember any of the crafting recipes or go online to find them. This should make the game much better for new and casual users.
"SMP with PC Version"
The Xbox version of Minecraft will eventually come with online (SMP) support but this is not planned for the first version. Eventually, you'll be able to play SMP and join other Minecraft servers from the computer version of Minecraft (PC, Mac, Linux).
Worlds can be saved in the usual way, but they'll be persisted to your local Xbox storage area or onto any of the Microsoft cloud storage systems. You won't be able to load worlds from the PC version of the game because they are in a different format. The games already got over 70,000 reviews on XBLA and it's not even out yet! It just goes to show how excited you all are and how much we love Minecraft. So get your Xbox points topped up and prepare to download one of the best games to arrive on XBLA!!
