Ok, you guys do know that Minecraft Pocket runs on Android, right? (Only in the Xperia Play, but that is because of hardware requirements, not software). https://market.android.com/details?id=c ... inecraftpe
The Play has a 1GHz Snapdragon and an Adreno 205 GPU. AFAIK, RasPi has a better GPU and a worse GPU, perhaps they balance out... Now all we need is one of those Dalvik-to-generic-Linux ports already happening to run Android apps on the RasPi.
I do indeed - in fact, I mentioned it. I also mentioned that it's still not clear whether it will be opened up to *all* Android devices, or only those that Sony approve (through the Playstation Certified scheme). In order to get hold of the APK - legally - you have to buy it through the Market, and the Market won't let you buy it unless you have a compatible device.
Even if it is still possible, the pocket version is only Creative mode; it's not quite the same as the Survival mode on a desktop PC.

The only hope you have for a port is the Android version - assuming someone can get Android running on the RasPi. That version however is currently limited to Xperia Play handsets, and it's speculated that it'll only be released on other handsets that Sony approve as "Playstation Certified" (meaning powerful CPU, lots of RAM and beefy graphics).
