Minecraft: PS3 Edition

You didn’t think that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition’s relatively late arrival on Sony’s ageing system would impede its commercial performance, did you? Good, because after around a month available on the PlayStation Network, the indie smash has already exceeded sales in the region of one million units. We’re convinced that people must be double-dipping at this point, as there can’t possibly be a sentient being on the planet that doesn’t already own a copy of Mojang’s brick-‘em-up.

As part of a brief blog post, the developer's Daniel Kaplan noted that the sales are “crazy” considering that the game launched just before Christmas, and hinted that he hopes that fans like the updates that the company has got in the pipeline. For the record, the title has sold over 20 million copies across various platforms to date, with the already announced PlayStation 4 and Vita versions poised to push that figure further.
