Minecraft creeps to over 1 million copies sold on PS3
To say Minecraft has struck a chord with audiences is an understatement. Mojang’s virtual LEGO playground surpassed 39 million copies sold across PC, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android late last year. The latest addition to the Minecraft family is the PS3 version that launched on December 17th in North America, and on December 18th in Europe. The game was greeted with immense success as sales have already hit one million copies sold. Minecraft has likely become one of the fast selling games in the PlayStation Network’s history.
Mojang and 4J Studios (the company that handles the console version) are preparing PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita versions of Minecraft for a release this year. I imagine they’ll dominate the charts too.
