Minecraft For PS Vita Released In PlayStation Store Update, Available Now For $19.99
Minecraft's march to platform dominance continues as the wildly successful title--recently purchased alongside its parent studio by Microsoft for $2.5 billion--launches on the PS Vita.
Sony's handheld is the latest system to become home to Minecraft, available now on the PS Store thanks to yesterday's update. The title is available on Vita for $19.99, and offers 2-4 player splitscreen or eight player online modes.
Microsoft promised the franchise would not be limited to only its own systems going forward because of the acquisition, and the Vita version has obviously not come to a screeching halt since the announcement. Buying the Vita edition will also give you access to the PS3 title--more Minecraft everywhere!
You can check out additional details (or make a purchase) on the game's store page, where a demo version is also available. There are already plenty of texture packs for sale as well if that's your style, and the game should be a more fully realized version than the mobile edition, but will obviously lack all of the modification of the PC version. Still, for portability with real controls, the Vita version seems like a good bet if you still always need a Minecraft fix.
