LEGO Minecraft Feels Redundant

Collectible set to ship this summer


Oh, gosh. I think we've encountered an infinite loop of geekery. Danish toymaker invents play set with infinite building possibilities. Swedish programmer designs computer game based on same philosophy--creating whole worlds from blocks. Danish toymaker picks up on Swedish game's popularity, releases set based on its own virtual protégé. Will this go on forever? Am I staring into the abyss?

So, yeah, the LEGO set of PC games has inspired an actual, real life LEGO set of its own. The LEGO Minecraft set is currently available for pre-order and will ship this summer.
