Minecraft PS Vita Edition PlayStation Vita 1

Minecraft: PS Vita Edition has sold over one million units at retail in Japan according to tracking firm Media Create. This means that – despite the brand being owned by Microsoft – it's the first Sony published title since 2004 to hit seven digits. The last first-party release to achieve the target was Gran Turismo 4 on the PlayStation 2.

Of course, Minecraft: PS Vita Edition wasn't developed by the Japanese giant, but the firm did publish its retail release in the East, so this kind of counts if you squint. It does demonstrate how Sony's brands have much more pull in Western territories these days, though, as Nintendo is regularly knocking out million sellers in its home nation, while Sony's been made to wait 12 years for one.
