Minecraft Console Sales Pass PC/Mac, Total Sales Almost at 54 Million
That’s a whole lot of griefing.
Mojang’s Minecraft has been a monumental success since releasing for PC way back when, but its popularity truly sky-rocketed when it released for the Xbox 360. It’s now available for the PS3 as well with Vita, Xbox One and PS4 releases planned. Just how successful have the console releases been though?
According to a tweet by Mojang’s Patrick Geuder Saga, who handles data analysis, “Minecraft console editions together just passed Minecraft for PC/Mac. And across all platforms we’ve sold almost 54 million copies.”
That’s a pretty stellar amount and not the least bit surprising. After all, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has been a top selling game for nearly a year now in both the US and UK. The PlayStation 3 Edition has just recently joined it and is also selling fairly well. As of June 25th, the Xbox 360 version has sold 12 million copies while the PC version sold 14 million units.
