Minecraft's portable exclusivity on Sony's Xperia Play (aka "PlayStation Phone") comes to an end this week. Minecraft: Pocket Edition will be available on the Android Market this Thursday, September 29th.

The mobile version of Minecraft is similar to the Xperia Play version, albeit with a virtual d-pad. Unlike the PC version, there are no enemies, and no health and hunger bars either.

An iOS version is also in the works, and will be available later this year.

      That looks horrible on a touch screen, I bet it is actually pretty good on the Xperia Play. Does anyone out there actually own one of these things?

      Fingers crossed there is a tablet mode! And crossed-fingers-crossed that there might even be good keyboard support for the Asus Transformer :-D
