I don't know if we'll ever have actual command blocks come to the consoles. Just learning the simplest of commands may be a bit much for the casual gamer. Now, I don't mean that that should be a deterrent, but it could be a factor as to whether the effort is worth it. If a relatively low percentage of players are ever going to use command blocks, then 4J may deem that risk (e.g. potential game-breaking bugs) is not worth putting them in.
Instead I think we'll see an expansion of the Host Options. Take for instance disabling weather. It will almost certainly not take the form of a written command; instead it'll probably be a checkbox option that'll suspend or resume weather patterns, like they did with the day/night cycle.
Command Blocks aren't for casuals--there's a reason why you obtain it using /give and not through the creative menu.
I'd love them and weather control, even if it's a simplified version (obviously checking to see if a zombie is wearing enchanted leather armour and killing it instantly is a bit too much for the systems).
