“Minecraft - Pocket Edition for Xperia Play will be released this autumn, and will cost 6.99 USD,” Perrson aka “Notch” claimed.

Minecraft Pocket Edition is built on the massively popular PC version itself, however, because it will be pushed to a smaller screen, some functionalities will definitely be lost. But, according to the company, the overall feel of the game will still remain quite similar to that of the original Minecraft.
