Minecraft for PS3 sold nearly a million copies in a month

In spite of having already been available on nearly every other platform imaginable, the late-arriving PS3 version of Minecraft has sold over a million copies. Launched on December 17, Mojang has just announced that the PlayStation Network game has recently sold over a million copies, boasting "that has to be some kind of record on PSN, no?"

The Xbox 360 version of the game has already sold over 10 million on Xbox 360, and even more on PC. Minecraft is so popular that the retail Xbox 360 version is actually one of the best-selling games of 2013, selling more than every version of Disney Infinity combined. Kids really love their Minecraft.

Next up for Minecraft is a PS4 and Vita version. Undoubtedly, we'll be writing a similar "it sold a lot" story shortly after its release.
