Xperia Play Gets Exclusive On Mobile Minecraft

Viral indie hit Minecraft has landed a mobile partner in Sony-Ericsson, whose Xperia Play (AKA the Playstation Phone) will the first device to have the game customized to a handset. Mojang, who makes the game, confirmed that they were working with S-E to fit the game to the screen and hardware.

There’s no information on pricing or other platforms, but an E3 event points to a June 7 release. I’d guess it will have a period of exclusivity on the Play or maybe a reduced, bundle price. We’ll be at E3 to find out, so stay tuned.
