Minecraft Pocket Edition Now Available on Xperia Play

Minecraft Pocket Edition Now Available on Xperia Play

Aug 18, 2011

The time for building structures in low-polygon environments has finally come! Well, for a small subset of Android users, anyway. Minecraft Pocket Edition has been released on the Android Market, but only for Xperia Play phones at this point. The game is the same core game as the PC version, where the main goal is, well, there is no goal. It’s just to build, explore, and have fun. The mobile edition has 36 different kinds of blocks, and local wireless play. Reportedly, features like enemies and underground mines are not in the game yet, and it isn’t cross-compatible with the PC version. For those who haven’t gotten into the craze yet and are wondering why exactly this game that looks like it came straight out of 1990 is so popular, a demo is available for perusal. The game should hopefully be available on the Android Market at large, but until then, Xperia Play owners can rub it in the rest of Android owners’ faces. Any Xperia Play owners that want to rub it in our faces? Leave your impressions in the comments!
