I would hate controlling my character on an iphone. Let alone an iPod.

Nope.

I hope minecraft never gets ported to any other thing than the computer.

If you want to play minecraft away from home, get a decent laptop.

Nope.avi.

You know what we need? Minecraft on DS. I can imagine the controls would be OKAY on that.

That would be very epic.

I could see Minecraft on 3DS working, hell we already have a 3D option in the menu and the bottom screen could be used for either a minimap or realtime inventory. Not sure what the 3DS specs are though and there is the issue that the game is far from being complete enough to be ported to any sort of virtual store, maybe after it's out of beta?

Minecraft can already run on iTouch/iPhone, as well as Android, since the game runs in Java. But it's not supported, and Notch has mentioned he won't even look at supporting it (at least for now).

A DS version would be awesome, and is probably do-able. I'm not sure if Java has been ported as homebrew to the DS yet.

If Minecarft were to be on DS, what would it be released as? Homebrew or an actual cartridge?

I'm going for Homebrew, but I'm also thinking the .nds file can take up a lot of space...

I have a Droid. It would be cool to play on my Droid if it was possible to move the character effectively. However, touch screen is not a very good control system for a first person game. The DS would be pretty cool, tho!
In the beginning, Notch created the Nether and the Earth, and in it he made a man of sand and called him Steve. Notch made Steve strong so that he may punch wood, and lo, Steve was to have dominion over all square things.

When will people learn that crossing over a game to a platform it wasn't intended for always ends in disaster?

Implying the 3DS has 3D capabilities

which it doesn't

mobile phones and ipods/phones are currently not powerfull enough to run minecraft in its current form, its far too power hungry, memory read and write speeds are also slower on mobiles (this includes ipods/phones) so imagine trying to play while its got to generate more of the map.... lag city

Correction, it can be run on Android since that is based on Java. Apple devices are based on C, C++ and Objective-C. Which would require an engine rewrite. Notch has said he is intrested in porting a smaller version of Minecraft to Android in the future though.

You do know the top screen is autostereoscopic right?

Minecraft was actually on the ipod touch, it was called minecrafted and it was a complete ripoff of minecraft that some guy sold for a buck without notches permission ( he was going to ask though), it's gone now. Anyways i could never see the ipod with minecraft on it, how would the controls work? How would it handle fancy infinite random generating maps? I want it to stay pc.

I also don't want it on the 3ds, i can't wait for the 3ds to come out ( i want to get starfox 64 3d) but minecraft on it would never happen.
