Minecraft Pocket Edition To Be Released For Wider Selection Of Android Devices Sept. 29th

Looks like the Sony Xperia Play’s exclusive grip on the Pocket Edition of Minecraft is coming to an end – which is wonderful, since many people wondered when it would have a wider release for Android. Miners can now look forward to September 29th as the date that the ‘rest of us’ get to build our sand castles.

Accompanied with this great news is also a video of Pocket Edition’s on-screen controls. Who wants to go stomping through some dungeons and destroy some zombies with me?

    ummm wtf is the point of this game? O.o …im not knocking it..i seriously wanna know

      it’s like a survival/building game. collect resources, make things with what you collect. Hard to explain since it’s kind of like playing real life with blocks but real life physics and what not. Picture being the only person in the world but with monsters at night and animals during the day. Minecraft.

    4 days is too long to wait. Here is hoping it will be compatible with my TF101 and my Droid 3.

    Honestly, I don’t really enjoy playing games on my phone. It’s probably because my thumbs take up too much of the screen when I’m playing games with these type of controls.

    I just got a $827.89 Samsung Galaxy Tab for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.

    I wonder if we who bought the PC version will have to pay an additionally fee for the mobile version (I assume we will)

    • Anonymous

      its like an $8 app for the Xperia Play atm, total bs imo.

      • ehhh

        Why is it total BS?  Why would you think the mobile version should be free just because you bought the PC version?  Doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.   Not to mention that game is really cheap in the first place. 

        • Anonymous

          I don’t think the mobile version should be free, but I do think it should be discounted for those who have already purchased the game. 

          • ehhh

            okay.  I’ll agree with you on that.  :)    I keep forgetting Im not on BGR and sometimes I just jump  to conclusions too quick.

          • kaligura

            Didn’t Notch originally say that by purchasing the PC version you will get all future updates, content and versions? Wouldn’t that be a future version of Minecraft?

    I’ve never had interest in Minecraft, but looking at how intuitive they made the controls, and assuming there is at least some defined multiplayer aspect to it, this will sell like hotcakes.

    i love that later in the video it says “iOS version coming eventually”.  suck it

    • WAldenIV

      Finally someone got it right. Android first. iOS whenever it gets done sometime later.

    looks more like Finger-in-the-wayCraft

    seriously, what is the point of this game?

    • Zzzzs

      The game is focused on creativity and building, allowing players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D world. The game has two variants – free Classic and paid Beta –
      where Classic is focused entirely on construction with unlimited
      material supply, Beta requires players to acquire resources themselves,
      and contains mobs, player health, and additional features and items. The gameplay is heavily inspired by Infiniminer by Zachtronics Industries,[6] Dwarf Fortress by Bay 12 Games and Dungeon Keeper by Bullfrog Productions.[7][8]
