Okay, I’m going to try my hardest to hold in my excitement for this rest of this post but this — is all win. If one of your favorite past times is gaming (like me) you would know that every year there is a huge gaming convention in Los Angeles called the Electronics Entertainment Expo – or, as we in “the biz” call it, E3. Video game developers from all around the globe gather to share off their latest wares, among them being the big 3 – Microsoft, Nintendo, And Sony.

And it looks like the latter will be throwing a nice little after hours party to show off their newest venture, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play. Thanks to Kotaku, we’re able to see exactly what the invite looks like and lo and behold, its themed to the teeth with clues as to what they may be unveiling. I got 3 words for you: Mine-freakin’-craft.

If you’re unfamiliar with this game, its an indie game for the computer that in it’s short time out, has grown to mythic proportions taking over the lives of almost anyone who dares to experience its majesty. Its long been known that the developer had planned to bring the indie smash hit to iOS and Android but it looks like Sony may have managed to get the exclusive ahead of Apple and even ahead of other Android devices (how’s that for fragmentation).

So if you love Android and you’re serious about gaming, could the possibility of Minecraft sway any Verizon customers who were maybe on the fence on the Xperia Play? If this exclusive is any clue, it looks like Sony is going full force with the Xperia Play and I’m already expecting more surprises at E3 this year.

Oh- and don’t forget, yours truly will be on hand at E3 the first week of June, representing for Phandroid and armed with my trusty camera to bring you guys all of the latest and greatest in mobile gaming. Its going to be a great week, peoples!
