Minecraft is out on the Vita in the US right now, and should be hitting the UK today
On the PSN
Minecraft for PS Vita is out right now in America. You can buy it on the PSN Store. Maybe you could make an iPhone?
If you're in the UK, it should be out later today. You could make a Windows Phone, then call your friends in America on their iPhone. I'm thinking about this too much.
If you're waiting for the retail version that'll land on November 11th in the US, November 19th in Europe, and November 21st in the UK.
Anyway, we'll update this here story when you can get Minecraft in the UK. In the meantime, why not go outside and feel the Autumn chill on your face?
