If you happen to own an Xperia Play phone, then your purchase has just been justified because the Xperia Play can now download the Minecraft: Pocket Edition app from the Android Market right now. Minecraft: Pocket Edition will cost $6.99 at the moment and those familiar with Minecraft should know that this app is currently at the stage Alpha 0.1.
Despite being a very early build, gamers will have 36 different block types to build with either on their own or with another player all in randomized worlds. The game will be continually developed as time passes similar to the normal Minecraft that is on PC, Mac and Linux. Those who don’t have an Xperia Play may still be able to play Minecraft: Pocket Edition in the future as they are working to make it available to other Android capable phones.
