It seems that Minecraft’s sales are going well for the consoles versions.
Minecraft, one of most popular games out there, sold over 54 million copies across all available platforms: Xbox 360, PlayStation3, PC, Mac, iOS and Android. This news was confirmed by Patrick Geuder Saga, the head of data analysis at Minecraft Studio, which used his Twitter account to make this statement.
It seems that the most Minecraft players use their computers. They were the ones who bought almost 16million copies. The next biggest platform is Xbox 360 with 12million copies sold, and it’s followed by PlayStation 3 with only 1.5million copies. However, the game is expected to come for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in August 2014.
Anyway, there is no news regarding the game coming to Nintendo platforms such as 3DS, Wii or Wii U.
It seems that there are still many gamers who still choose to play games on PC, rather than on consoles. Maybe it’s because of the graphics, since we all know that if you have a good computer, you will always have better visuals than on a console.
Even if Minecraft comes with larger world sizes in the computer version, it does not support split-screen multiplayer mode like the console does, which may be in handy if you have many friends at your place who want to play too.
Mojang, the developer of Minecraft, made a total profit of 326 million dollars in 2013 and now, with the upcoming release of Minecraft on next-generation consoles, it may score high.
