I genuinely dislike the mobile version of Minecraft. That might not sit well with some folks out there, and I totally get that. The killer for me with Minecraft: Pocket Edition is the touchscreen gaming. I can’t deal with those virtual joysticks.
The PS Vita, though? The analog sticks on the platform have me considering a portable version of the game I dumped oh so much time into on my PC a few years ago.
Aram Jabbari (of PlayStation) put together an over four minute video that shows what Minecraft looks like on the PS Vita. In spite of the commentary that I didn’t like too much, the video actually sports a pretty good look at what would-be miners can expect.
I’m that much closer to nabbing Minecraft on my portable. I don’t own it on any other PlayStation platforms, so it’s gonna cost me $19.99 to enjoy. If you have Minecraft on the PlayStation 3, it’s free on the PS Vita through Cross-Buy. If you have it on the PlayStation 4, it’s only $4.99.
