Minecraft heading for Xperia Play exclusive

Minecraft heading for Xperia Play exclusiveIndie gaming sensation Minecraft has gone from strength to strength on the PC, yet unlike the open layout of the game itself, in real life you've thus far been restricted to the world of computers to get your fix.

Well, that's soon to change, as it looks like the PlayStation Phone - or the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play - has been lined up to bridge a path across to the world of mobile. Now you're talking...

Like many underground gaming successes, it's hard to pin down exactly what's so special about low-fi building game Minecraft, yet the numbers don't lie and millions have found it an addictive way to while away a few, er, days.

So you better make sure your Xperia Play is fully charged, because the Android blower has been picked to pop Minecraft's smartphone cherry. The PlayStation-friendly version will have customised controls to take advantage of the Xperia Play's button layout, we're told.

We're not sure how long the Xperia Play exclusive will last, but the game will apparently be finding its way to other Android phones, as well as to the iPhone and iPad, some time after that.

Developer Mojang is expected to dish up more details at the E3 gaming expo, which kicks off early next month.

janiscool, well, "Playstation Certified" any better? That means Sony very much stuck their hacked neck out the window to get into the Android market, don't you think? That makes it a 'Playstation' phone imho.
