A Minecraft App That Runs in Your Browser: Mine Any Site

Sony has released a free browser app that lets you dig through the surface of a website to reveal Minecraft blocks below it.

Huh?

The java overlay known as Minecraft Anywhere lets users either dig with a pickaxe or summon a creeper to blast away a chunk of whatever website you’re visiting, using forced perspective to give the illusion that the overlaid image of Minecraft blocks are “deeper” in your screen than the foreground website.

You can download this cute little gimmick over .here

Now, I don’t mean to sound insulting, but… What is the point of this?

This is mostly in support of the Xperia Play version of Minecraft, in conjunction with the addition of Survival mode to the mobile version.
