Minecraft sells a million on PS3

"It is crazy considering the game was released just before Christmas last year"

Mojang's domination of the industry continues with the news that the latest port of the title has sold over a million copies on PlayStation 3.

"Minecraft on PS3 recently sold over 1 million copies (that has to be some kind of record on PSN, no?)," said Mojang's Daniel Kaplan.

"It is crazy considering the game was released just before Christmas last year. We are super grateful for the support and we are very thankful for your dedication."

The PlayStation 3 version of the blocky blockbuster was only released on December 17, and was developed by 4J Studios. Mojang can add the millions sales to the already impressive numbers on other platforms, 10 million on box 360 and close to 14 million sales on PC. In the last 24 hours alone, 19,534 people bought the game on PC.

A PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 4 version on the game are expected soon.
