Xperia Play scores Minecraft for awesome building on the go


Minecraft has a huge cult following. And while we're not the biggest of gamers here at Pocketables, it's still nice to see such a franchise going mobile, especially on such a sizzling piece of mobile gaming hardware.

What you see above is the creator of Minecraft, Markus Persson, playing the game on his Xperia Play, which runs Android. If you are a fan of Minecraft, you'll remember that iOS users already have the ability to view the block worlds on their devices, but lack the ability to edit them. It's coming for iOS, too, but Android will be getting it first. Makes sense though; I'd rather have physical buttons to play a game with, anyway.

The thing I'm most excited about here is the potential for syncing across clients. Whether you're running OS X, Linux, Windows, iOS, or Android, you should be able to edit your own worlds from any device you may be using at that time. Have an iPod touch and a Casio G'zOne Commando? Awesome! Pretend you're working on something important with your Commando when you're actually supposed to be working out on the field, and then when you get home, you can bust out your touch to finish a mountain.
