today that it has sold over one million copies of Minecraft
on PlayStation 3.
The PlayStation 3 version of Mojang's best-selling
blocks game launched on the PlayStation Network on December 17 of last year with an asking price $20.
That suggests the game sold more than a million copies in roughly five weeks, an impressive feat -- though not quite as impressive as the time it sold more than a million copies on the Xbox 360 five days
after being released
on Xbox Live.
The PlayStation 3 version of Minecraft
is the latest cross-platform leap Mojang has made, but it's not the last -- more versions of the game for new platforms are in the works, including versions for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. Mojang is also working on a subscription service called Minecraft Realms
, which is currently running in beta in Sweden and is expected to launch later this year.
