why did they put that same old sensor in it, they really should have developed an update 21 or 24mp sensor, I wouldn't buy an X-T1 because the sensor is likely to be replaced with in a year.

This is no different to the Nikon DF using the same sensor as the D4, the D4 sensor isn't great and caused many Nikon users to switch over to Canon

That "same old sensor" is still the best APS-C sensor for all round performance. All you have to do is look at the Pentax SLR forum where there are many discussions on whether the K3's 24mp sensor offers enough of an advantage over the K5IIs' s 16mp sensor to make up for its shortcomings.

I think technology needs to advance before we'll see a 20+mp sensor that offers the DR and high ISO performance of the 16mp sensor and I for one am pleased to see that Fuji aren't offering an inferior sensor just to have a prettier spec sheet.
