Minecraft sells over a million copies on PS3 in five weeks
Today Mojang has announced a somewhat startling development, but one that they have every right to be proud of. Specifically, their game, Minecraft, has successfully sold over a million copies on Sony’s PlayStation 3 as of today, which marked the fifth week since the game was released on PlayStation 3.
Said Daniel Kaplan, “Hope you are enjoying the picking and placing of blocks! Just wanted to let you know that Minecraft on PS3 recently sold over 1 million copies (that has to be some kind of record on PSN, no?). 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 and I hope you will like the future updates we have planned for you (more on that in a later blog post).”
Are you surprised that it sold so quickly?
