    I find Minecraft to be boring.

    I find Minecraft Classic to be even more dull.

    I find Minecraft Classic, on single player, with bad controls to just be a complete waste of time.

    Seriously, just get a laptop and play Minecraft if you really want to. Or save yourself the pain and play Terraria.

    This was already announced before. Did you really need to make a news post for a screenshot?

    Dreamland.
    Minecraft is probably going to be put on every portable device that can handle it, not that I mind.

    I really do not understand what the fuzz is about this minecraft. It get's thrown in my face way too often when it doesn't look even remotely appealing to me.

    You don't have much of an imagination for building stuff, do you?

    Was kinda hoping iOS wouldn't get Minecraft PE, if only because of personal reasons.

    you shouldn't say anything about a game you've never played, i actually love this game but at times survival mode gets boring once you find diamond, and my computer isnt even remotely capable of handling multiplay but still the game is awesome in my opinion

    titen, he can do whatever he wants.
    He doesn't like Minecraft? Big deal.

    People actually are allowed to play or not play what they want/don't want to.
    It's great that you love the game and all, but he stated he doesn't like it, yet everyone is constantly rubbing it into his face.
    I would like it either if people kept "redirecting" me towards a game I didn't like.

    im just saying that hes criticizing a game that he never bought and actually played, if he actually played and didnt like it, thats another thing.

    And how would you know if he never played it?
    You probably wouldn't need to play it to know that the game is/isn't for you.
    Just looking at gameplay videos would tell you what the game is about, and then you could potentially judge if you're interested or not.

    Why would I buy a game that doesn't appeal to me in any way? The whole idea of minecraft doesn't appeal to me, neither does the gameplay elements nor art style. If I wanted to play with blocks I'd buy some Lego.

    Anyways, it would be the same as me smoking next to you repeatedly even though you don't like it. Maybe you should buy a pack of cigarettes and see if you like it? (basically what you tell me to do ;) )

    Everyones entitled to their own opinion, whether you agree with it or not.

    Also, /agree with Pingouin7.

    I tried the Android version, terribly disappointed. I think this will be the same, so, not looking forward to much. I'd rather play Eden, that iOS Minecraft clone, atleast, Eden has had me more impressed than the official Android MC.

    Thumbs on a screen take up too much space.

    I'd rather play this on a device with control pads and buttons instead of a touch screen

    Minecraft just isn't for phones, especially with ones with no buttons...
