Minecraft PS Vita coming next week to NA and EU


Minecraft fan-boys, which includes me and just about everyone else, will be happy to know that finally the PlayStation Vita version of the game will be making its way to the handheld next week. After a long development process and being delayed due to bugs and glitches, we will finally have a true portable version of the addicting block-building/survival game.

Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition will be available via the PlayStation Store next week on Tuesday, October 14th for $9.99 for the US and on Wednesday, October 15th in Europe. If you don’t want to have the digital version of the game and prefer to go to store to make  your purchase, then the game will also be available at retail on November 11th. But, remember, the PS Vita version is also Cross-Buy; here are the details from the PlayStation Blog.
