Minecraft: PlayStation Vita Edition (plus PS3/Vita download code) - £9.99 @ Game

The physical version of Minecraft for PS Vita - which also includes a cross-buy download code for both the PS3 and Vita versions (there is a small upgrade charge if you want the PS4 version).

After Microsoft recently increased the retail price of Minecraft for all PlayStation versions (http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/minecraft-s-retail-price-is-going-up/0167347) this works out at about half price.

The trade-in price at CeX is currently £10 fwiw.

So you could theoretically buy this, use the code for PS3 & Vita and then use the cartridge on a friend's Vita?

ordered, thanks

Great price. Ordered. Heat.

OOS already :(. Now showing as £22 for pre-owned.

Managed to snag one thanks for the heads up!

This definitely contains a code as well? So I could give the physical to a mate or trade it in for £10 and own it for free on both PS3/Vita?

I wondered that, too. Shame it's OOS.

They have stock in my local stores but the 'new' games in Game tend to be already opened. I wouldn't be surprised if the codes have mysteriously disappeared

Much to the shock of staff oO X)

Just picked up a copy in Glasgow Silverburn, fully sealed.

Amusingly, the guy told me, "They don't really make Vita games anymore." I recently bought Odin Sphere and God Eater 2, but yeah, I guess it's somewhat niche these days.

Sega Hard Girls oO X) I love the Vita. Largely because I can game without the old ball and chain complaining.

Just to confirm, guys: my sealed copy had the code inside. Managed to redeem it, and while it specifically said 'PS3', I subsequently went to my Vita and had the option to download the full game for free. Huzzah!

The seal also had a sticker on it that said something along the lines of 'Property of SCEE. Not to be removed prior to purchase.'

That sticker basically means that Game aren't paying Sony for supplying the game until after it is sold, and if they go bankrupt again Sony get their stock back as they haven't been paid for it.

Interesting stuff. And hence the code was effectively guaranteed X)

Back in stock online, just bought one. Thanks OP

Good question. I signed in on the webstore, added the PS4 version to my basket, went all the way through the purchase process till I was one click away, but it still said £12.99. And there doesn't seem to be a separate upgrade option.

There should definitely be a PS4 upgrade option - blog.eu.playstation.com/201…on/

Have you tried on the console itself?

Yes I tried via the app and on the PS4 itself. I've searched through all the Minecraft items on the store and nothing specifically says upgrade.

Update: As of February 25, 2016 this upgrade offer and the DLC content transfer offers are no longer available.

Just bought this from Game for cheap PS4 upgrade

Same here. There's a lesson for me here to check everything out before I make the purchase. On the plus side I redeemed the code and sold the physical version for £10, so free Minecraft on Vita and PS3.
