One of the more pleasant surprises at E3 this year was our hands-on with the Xperia Play. I was really expecting to dislike the device, but after playing a few games on it, I found it to be totally legit, even if the games selection isn’t so hot right now. And what’s more, they had Minecraft on it.
As one of the headline games of the new platform, it’s no surprise that Minecraft is getting a little official love — today, it takes the form of a truly sweet looking Minecraft-themed Xperia Play. It’s being sold by Mojang themselves, so you know it’s for real.
It’s not clear whether this is a one-off or just the first of many decals and themes. I’d guess the latter. That hasn’t stopped the bidding from topping $1200, though — and there are still six days to go as of this writing. But then again, people do tend to open up their wallets a bit when the proceeds are going to charity, as these will.
