Minecraft: Pocket Edition Finally Crafted, Is Live In The Market Now

After suffering a mysterious delay on their game, Minecraft: Pocket Edition creators have finished their work at the crafting bench and came out with something more awesome than a diamond pickaxe. The game is now available for download in the Market.

That means you can get started on punching trees and tilling soil and building houses while you are on the go instead of being tied down to your computer. If that all sounds really boring, you probably have not played Minecraft before, and should definitely give it a try. The demo is free but the full version will run you $6.99. And trust me, if it takes up as many hours as the computer version, it will be the most cost efficient game you’ve ever purchased. (I have over 150 hours in the console version for a ~$20 game.)

Buy.

Update: The game is now available for many Android devices through the Android Market. Go get it!

    Has Notch said anything about how they’re handling the alpha purchasers? We’re supposed to get the game on all platforms…

    • George Fayad

      When were we ever told that? Alpha purchasers get all updates to the computer game. Nothing was ever said about other platforms to my recollection.

      • http://cad.cx Colin Dean

    That bro conversation was the most awesome thing I’ve read all week
    Cheered me up after the massive fail at Google with their delayed event… then the 6 month old processor, 5mp camera, and average battery in the leaked Prime device :/

  • Tony Allen

    This isn’t out yet. Eric, get your stuff together, this hasnt’ been released for anything other than the Xperia Play as of yet. Don’t need raging Minecraft fanboys over here too.. get enough of that on the forums and twitter.

  • ProfessorFarnsworth

    Wow I was unaware gays had taken over that phrase.  No fair I want, to own a phrase :(  I’m pretty sure saying that makes you a douche though.   Too bad.

  • ProfessorFarnsworth

    Where are you seeing the device limitiations at? 

  • Anonymous

    Sure this is the non-XPERIA version?  Says unavailable for Thunderbolt, Tab 10.1, etc.

  • Pokerman

    A no go on the thunderbolt as well.

    FYI: 
    Xoom
    Samsung SCH-I800 (Gal Tab OG)

    Droid 2
    Droid 3

    This item is not compatible with these device(s).

    Please disregard. Reading a little lower – the application still hasnt been updated. My bad.

    Market says last update was August 16th, 2011. No new update showing.

    • Anonymous

      Then that must be it. The newest version of Minecraft: Pocket Edition is not yet in the Market. Might wanna update this post, Eric, especially if that is the case…which hopefully it is.

      And you mean the “PC” version, right? There is no console version yet.

  • Anonymous

    Umm excuse me, but what does this have to do with the Galaxy Nexus?

    • Anonymous

      Was thinking the same thing!

  • Swest4

    I don’t think it’s released yet. The market link shows an August release date and version 0.1 so I think it’s safe to guess that this is the Xperia Play version.

  • Anonymous

    The new update for all android devices isn’t live yet fyi

  • Kuboo99

    Hmmm, not compatible on Nexus S 4G, Droid X or Asus Transformer. I would think that at least one would work…

  • yeah buddy

    Guys it hasn’t been updated yet it says the last time it was updated was august 16th just wait a couple of hours

      Yeah, the Xperia PLAY.

      lol

  • http://twitter.com/Jason13L Jason Lassourreille

    Did they not update it yet on market? I can’t find a device it IS compatible with!

  • Anonymous

    That’s awesome! Have been waiting for them to release Minecraft: Pocket Edition for more Android phones since last week.

    But damnit, it HAD to be 2.3 or up in order to work on my Droid X. I still have 2.2. I guess this is a good enough reason to any to finally take the leap and update my phone to Liberty (Gingerbread 2.3).

    Sweet!

    • Anonymous

      Hmm…just checked and it seems that my Droid X is incompatible.

      Freaking lame as ****.

          This app is compatible with your Verizon Motorola DROIDX.

    seriously?  “not compatible” with the bionic?  you gotta be Fn kidding me.  i was psyched to try this out.  release an app compatible with all current phones or don’t release it at all.  i can understand if a droid eris can’t run some stuff.  but between the bionic and my xoom, this app compatibility crap ticks me off.

    • Keith Sumner

      Yeah, ridiculous! I can’t play this on my brand new dual core 1g ram 4g phone!? Asinine!

      It’s not compatible with the Droid X either. I mean, come on! Seriously? Games with really incredible graphics work pretty well on my DX, yet Minecraft: PE doesn’t? Extremely strange. Granted I only have Android 2.2 still, but I doubt the Market knows that. Crazy!

      • Anonymous

        market does know this. but from a developer stand point it’s because of other factors with the phone. Most likely an issue with Motorola phones and how their opengl works. Making a 3d game that’s compatible with all phones is not as easy as it sounds. It’s easier to make something work with all computers than it is to make it work for all androids.
