The PC version of Minecraft may have come out first, but the console editions have now exceeded it in terms of overall sales.
Mojang staff member Patrick Geuder tweeted an announcement about Mincraft’s growing success.
“Minecraft console editions together just passed Minecraft for PC/Mac. And across all platforms we’ve sold almost 54 million copies.”
So far, Minecraft has been released for the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and even on mobile devices. It’s amazing how well the little indie game has been able to take over the world by storm. The fun in Minecraft lies within your own imagination. It’s like having your own LEGO set, but less expensive and it’s easier to make things.
As of right now, the Xbox 360 version alone has sold over 12 million copies and the PC version has sold 14 million copies. The sales figures for the mobile and PS3 editions of the game have not been updated, but I’m sure they’re pretty high too.
The first Minecraft game hasn’t stopped though. Later this year, the game will be out for the PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita too. I wonder if Minecraft will ever reach Nintendo as there has been no mention of a Wii U or 3DS version of the game yet.
