It's likely that the Android version will come first, as he was already testing it a while back. He mentioned it on his Twitter. It's not news that mobile versions will be coming, as like I said, he's already mentioned it on his Twitter several times.

There's going to be an Android version?????


Gawdl3y2821d ago

Well of course there is, Notch himself uses an Android phone.

I'd like to get it on NGP. That'd be freaking awesome.

I'd like to see a PS3/PSP2 version myself. It would be pretty cool to be able to play at home, but easily be able to copy your saves to the PSP2 version to take on the go.

It is great that it is coming to the iOS and Android, but I just don't like using the touch screen for first person games on my iPod. I find it to be more frustrating than fun to play games like that on it.

Fucking netbooks can run it, why couldn't you get this for PC?

Shit man, drop the commodore 64' and upgrade!

Lol my laptop can barely run it while it can at least run Supreme Commander on low settings. Some driver issue that makes it go 10 fps when you get near my massive structures.

DUSK5062821d ago

lol I play it on my pc, I just think it would be cool to have it on consoles.

Hey wtf is up with these devs lately...IPHONE is getting way too freaking much support when it comes down to what platform publish your stuff for...where is the love for the 3DS...or NGP, sckers.

I sense a smell of apple, a rotten apple. or just "Money money money" said with the accent from killing floor. Yep, iPhone is getting too much support. Hey notch, what do you say to "finish" your game before you start porting it over to other platforms?

Minecraft would be kind of annoying to play on a controller. The benefit of a mouse on the pc or a touchscreen is you can switch items quickly. Very important for creeper encounters.
