So 1 million x $19.99 ( – Sony's cut) = a nice amount of cash to add to Mojang's considerable war-chest. Not bad for a game already available on a ton of other platforms.
See the official announcement here:
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).
Enjoy your weekend!
