Minecraft to Xperia Play first
Timed exclusive on Sony's phone
Mojang have revealed to Gamasutra that the mobile version of indie-hit Minecraft will be hitting Sony Ericson's Xperia Play phone first as a timed exclusive. No word on what it will cost, when we can expect it or anything like that, but if you were waiting for a general Android version to be released, it looks like you will have to wait a bit longer - the plan is to "release early and update frequently," just like they've been doing with the PC version.
"When playing on smartphones you will have a different screen size compared to PC, different hardware, different attention spans and thus the game needs to be customized to fit the mobile specifications," Mojang told Gamasutra.
We're bound to hear more about it at E3, since a Minecraft-themed media event will be held there.
