Minecraft Pocket Edition Released For Android, But Don’t Get Too Excited Yet

Prepare to cry tears of joy my fellow Minecrafters. Mojang has just recently published Minecraft for Android on the Market. But don’t get too far ahead of yourselves if you do not own an Xperia Play. Minecraft has been released with only one compatible device for the next month or so, and yes, it’s the Play. The full edition of the app will run you $7, so that isn’t anything to cringe too much at, since we were expecting a $10 price tag. 

The game is only missing a few things for being a mobile version. Most players of Minecraft use the “Survival Mode”, and that is something which this mobile version lacks. We are hoping the developers will be adding it soon, but for now, you just get to run around with other players on local wi-fi networks and build things. No creepers, zombies, or skeleton archers. Kind of boring, right?

Fingers crossed that it remains the price of $7 when it is released for all other compatible devices. We are doubting it will be available for any devices with no physical keyboards though, seeing as how Minecraft relies heavily on keys, and on screen controls for this game would seem somewhat silly.

Who is super stoked for Minecraft on Android?

Cheers everyone who sent this in!

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    barbour
    jacket
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    jackets
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour
    uk.

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    barbour
    ladies
    and 
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    jackets
    silver 
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    an 
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    jacket
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    mens
    the other artists.

      Holly 
    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    jackets
    museum 
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    jacket
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    I hope that current Minecraft users wll be able to get at least a discount. I already paid $15 for the PC version during the Alpha, I don’t particularly want to pay another $10.

    awesome!

    Couldn’t you use that new app that lets you use the DS3 controller on Android phones?

  • Stephen D

    Aww. The fact that it costs 7 bucks and is exclusive to the Play makes it a rip off. Anyone who wants MC on their phone should get Minebuilder. It’s worlds are bigger, and it’s more like real Minecraft. It’s compatible with Minecraft texture packs(as long as they aren’t HD), and it lets you import your Minecraft worlds. They’re adding multiplayer soon too. 

    • Caseighopeus

      how can a world be bigger than infinite?

      • Stephen d

        reviews are saying that the worlds in mc are small and that they reach the edges very quickly

        • Rowb

          How the hell can ‘Minebuilder’ look more like real Minecraft when MinecraftPE is made by the SAME PEOPLE who made Minecraft?!

  • Josh Carroll

    Droid 3 does not like to run this application…

    • Granted

      Hmmm, maybe Xperia Play looks like Droid 3 to you.

      • TheAndroid1

        The commercial said it had a game pad.
        They keep swapping it out with the Play.

    I doubt it’ll be keyboard-phones only. I own a D3 and HATE using the physical keyboard for games. Plus think of all the iOS games out there. Say what you want about apple, but they have more/better games than we do ATM, and that’s without any physical buttons of any kind.

    Boring? No, I always play peaceful! I’m trying to build and explore, not fend off spiders and skeletons.

    only complete losers play this game, like my little brother

          I was just going to ask how you could possibly balance playing a game a few hours out of the week while  giving your right hand a daily workout.

          Too easy…

          I have a WIFE and I have time for games, if you have no time for activities you’re doing it wrong

            That’s exactly why we have time..it’s because we HAVE wives…LOL…not like we’d be doing much else.

          • Caseighopeus

            i’m gunna have to disagree, girlfriend = no time for video games, wife = plenty of time for video games, less incentive to impress :P

    I simply wished to appreciate you all over again. I do not know what I would’ve gone through in the absence of these ideas shown by you about such a subject. It was before a scary scenario in my view, nevertheless taking note of the well-written mode you dealt with that took me to weep for gladness. I’m happy for this guidance and thus pray you really know what an amazing job you were undertaking educating most people via a web site. I am sure you’ve never come across all of us.

  • BOB

    It has to be available for phones with no keyboards, wasn’t it coming to iOS too?

      Pwning… I can see the Cheeto stains on your fingers, and the gigs of porn fattening up your hard drive.

    I never understood the appeal to this game.

    Ya Diiiiiig!!!

    I’m pretty stoked! Can’t wait till it’s released on other devices.

    The “not available for phones with no keyboards” kinda kills it….

      I paid $23.88 for an i Pad 2 32-GB and my girlfriend loves her Pana sonic Lmiix GF 1 Camera that we got for $ 38.41 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LCD TV to my boss for $ 637 which only cost me $ 61.76 to buy.

        I know you did, you’ve told me MANY times. However, on an Android/Google devoted site, you may not want to lead with the iPad. P.s. you misspelled/misused “there” in an ad. Oh and “al” is a very nice guy to give you stuff for such little money.

      • TheAndroid1

        Each bid costs a dollar.
        So that 23.88 was really $2388 dollars to the company.

        Factor one dollar per bid in to the item plus all of the other items that you didn’t win.
        Guess what? You probably should have gone to the retail store.

    The graphics look awesome

  • Soandso

    The only keys you really use are the space bar and WASD…

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      And all the number keys to select items? And both mouse clickers? Come on now

      • Soandso

        These can’t be performed with a touchscreen?

        • Suchandsuch

          I’d like to see how you replicate 16 hardware keys with a touchscreen, while keeping the screen useable as a display.

      • http://twitter.com/cantcurecancer Quentin Davis

        If only we had an app that allowed us to tether a Wiimote, PS3, or Xbox controller to our phones…who cares, just disallow any phone w/o a hardware keyboard from downloading it.

        • http://twitter.com/KansasJayhawker Jonathan Reid

          There is an app for that if you are rooted

            You dont even have to be rooted…

        Actually i tried it on my droid charge and all you need left are the mouse left and right, the wasd keys and an inventory key.
