The little indie game that could just keeps growing. Back in June, Minecraft on PC had crossed the 11 million mark. Now, not even three full months later, the game has sold another seven figures, bringing the revenue generated from just the PC version of Minecraft to $323,400,000. Add in the Minecraft: Pocket Edition’s 10 million units sold and the 8 million that have found their way to XBox 360s across the country and there are a solid 20 million units of Minecraft sold. Not bad for an indie game that is basically a sandbox.
Microsoft has been quoted talking about Minecraft, calling it a “beast” and will be bringing it to the XBox One. Sony will follow suit with Minecraft on the PlayStation 4. Nintendo has said they were big fans of Mojang, Minecraft’s developer, but did not have any announcements as of yet about the series. Back in march, Mojang developer Jens Bergensten talked of a Wii U version of Minecraft as “very unlikely”.
Also just released this past weekend on Jinx are the two latest LEGO Minecraft sets. The Village and The Nether will sell for a cool $34.99 (almost $10 more than the actual PC software goes for) and be compatible with the already released LEGO Minecraft Micro World.
