Minecraft available in the Market for most devices


Minecraft fans have been jealous of Xperia Play owners for over a month now. Sony Ericsson’s gaming device has maintained exclusivity over this game since August. After some delays, Minecraft: Pocket Edition has finally made it out to the rest of the world.

This building game is now available in the Android market for all devices that meet the minimum specifications. There seems to be a bit of a problem, though, which we hope will be fixed soon.

According to the Android Market, the only requirement is having Android 2.1 or above. This statement seems to be rather faulty, since people have been reporting incompatibility issues with many devices. Some of these are definitely low-end, but still run Android 2.1 or higher (like the LG Optimus smartphones and the HTC Droid Eris).

There have even been reports of issues with devices running Gingerbread and some Honeycomb tablets. While the written requirements seem to be quite simple, compatibility must be more complex than what it seems. There are instances in which people with the same devices have different results.

Regardless, most mid-to-high-end devices seem to be working just fine. If you want to get your build on, go ahead and try to download the demo version for free! If everything works fine, you can get the full version for $6.99.

If interested, hit up the links and QR codes below. Let us know in the comments if the game is working on your device (and which device you are using). Any Minecraft fans getting the game? Happy building!

  • mkrmec

    I’m just pissed that I have to pay for a game I already payed for!! Probably won’t pay because it’s stupid to pay twice for the same game… 7 $ for something that isn’t even working like it’s supposed to. Laters

    • heeros

      same. I won’t be buying it. I already own the full game.

      • Amjoco

        What? You guys have bought games for a PS3 or Xbox 360 but wouldn’t expect to be able to install or play them on different consoles would you? Someone had to port this game over and probably didn’t do it just for the fun of it, they need to put food on their families tables just like you do. C’mon, it’s 7 bucks! lmao

      • JBC

        Cheap bastards.

  • Dirge

    Works fine on my Droid Charge.

  • Panatella

    Works great on my Desire HD! Too bad i cant buy the full version without a creditcard. Oh and the multiplayer in the free mode isnt working for me either, it just keeps searching for games.

  • Amjoco

    It’s working fine on my Asus Transformer so far.

    Probably because the requirements you list differ from the official ones? It’s not 2.1+ devices – it’s for 2.2+.

    From the Official Mojang website: http://mojang.com/2011/10/07/minecraft-pocket-edition-on-android/

    “Today we are very happy to announce that Minecraft — Pocket Edition will be available world wide for Android 2.2+ phones.”

      Guess the Market has it wrong. Not you – my apologies.
