We already know that the mobile version of Minecraft, dubbed ‘Pocket Edition’ is due to land on the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY later this year. However, we now have some details on pricing. Developer Markus Persson (aka Notch) told IGN recently that the timed Xperia PLAY exclusive will cost $6.99.
Notch says that at this point the mobile version of Minecraft is a bit “experimental” and that the game will be more of a “social experience than playing it on a PC”. He plans to explore this social aspect more before it is released.
In other gaming news, Xperia PLAY optimised versions of Spacelabs’ 3D MMO Pocket Legends, Konami’s Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 and music puzzler Lumines are now available on the Android market. Check out a video of PES 2011 on the Xperia PLAY below.
