Minecraft Sales Reach Surprising Mark: Console Sales Have Passed PC Sales

Minecraft is one of the world’s most popular games.

The open-ended sandbox building game has virtually limitless possibilities for players. On the PC, Minecraft is one of the most mod-friendly games in existence and literally thousands of popular mods have been created over the past few years.

Although initially a PC game, Minecraft creator Mojang also recently released Minecraft on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

Since releasing Minecraft onto consoles two years ago, Mojang has sold millions of copies. The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft has sold 12 million copies alone, while the studio has sold 54 million copies of the game in total.

In a recent tweet, Mojang’s head of data analysis announced some surprising results: Minecraft console sales have officially passed Minecraft sales on PC/Mac.

In other words, there are now more Minecraft players on console than there are on PCs and Macs.

Mojang did not explain how the numbers broke down across all platforms. Today, Minecraft is available on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Mac, Raspberry Pi, and Android. Although we know that the Minecraft 360 edition has sold approximately 12 million copies, the sales figures for other platforms remain unclear.

Furthermore, Minecraft versions for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 are expected to be released later this summer.

Fuelled by all of these sales, Mojang earned an astounding $326 million last year. Furthermore, a Minecraft movie is actively in development by Warner Bros. and the producer of The Lego Movie, Roy Lee, has been rumored to be involved.

Is Minecraft now officially a console game? Absolutely not. Haven’t you seen the amazing Minecraft mods on PC?

That being said, it’s good for the game as a whole that more console players are jumping on board. It gives Mojang more capital to develop Minecraft 2 – or whatever they have planned next – and attract legions of fans while they’re at it.
