That is a fantastic box art, captures much of the mood from the game.

I may just get it

If Sony are smart they'll release physical copies for Vita and PS4.

A Vita bundle would be terrific at the right price.
That would indeed be a very smart move.

Portable Minecraft as a packing. That's sure to sell a couple systems.

If they release this physically for the Vita it might help convince me to pick one up. I play Minecraft sometimes on the PC, but a portable version that isn't touchscreen-only and far behind version-wise is what I really want...never feel committed to big projects on the PC version because you can't multitask very well.

I agree, but it will be hamstrung by the silly memory card prices and Minecraft is a game that demands a lot of storage. (unless of course Sony sees sense and drops the price by 50% across the board)

Err?

Minecraft is tiny in terms of file-size.

They could bundle a 4GB card and it would take up barely any of it.

Edit: If they bundle the Vita 2000 they wouldn't even need to include a memory card as it already has 1GB of onboard storage.

Doesn't it have almost weekly updates along with various skin patches at the like? I can't imagine they'll all fit along with numerous save files on a 4gb memory card. Unless the Vita is getting the P.E version of the game...

The PS3 patches are usually tiny and just replace the last patch when it updates. The Vita patches will likely be even smaller.

It's a complete non-issue.

Ah, I didn't know the newer patches replaced the last ones. I guess that makes the storage issue moot. Thanks for clearing that up.

Still, Sony should take the opportunity to drop the price of the memory cards.

Not sure about boxed, but a crossbuy promo on Vita/PS3 may make me rebuy Minecraft again since my original PC Alpha purchase all those years ago... such a different game from back then, though.

Since it's published by Sony, if they won't do the same for Vita then they're just stupid

This pretty much confirms it's coming to PSV and PS4, but not if it's physical..

I'm pretty sure they confirmed them for the those platforms well before that picture was released. The only problem has been the release date, since they really haven't given any clue as to when they would actually be out.

PS4 and PSV versions were announced at the last Gamescom conference, so that's been known for a while.
As I said in the PSN thread, it's genuinely concerning how few people actually realize Minecraft PSV has been officially announced for nigh on a year now :(

EDIT: On the above blog post, 4J are taking questions. So... jump on it!

PAL Charts Top 10, start to make room for your new inhabitant.

...Has MinecraftX360 dropped from Top 10 at all?
