Mojang's success story continues as the PlayStation 3 release of its hit title Minecraft has sold more than one million units on the platform.

"Minecraft on PS3 recently sold over 1 million copies (that has to be some kind of record on PSN, no?)," said Mojang's Daniel Kaplan. "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."

The PlayStation 3 version of Minecraft was released on December 17 in North America and December 18 in Europe. It is currently available on the PlayStation Store for $19.99, £12.99 and €18.99. The game is also expected to be released for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One later this year.

Should outsell the xbox 360 version within 2 weeks

Awesome news. It's selling about as well as the 360 version did, and it's got a higher metascore to boot. Should be a great seller on PS4, especially if they do a retail release.

I never really understood the popularity of this game. It's my most overrated game of all time, maybe I'll just give it some more time. The demo I played didn't acquire my attention.

It's a game without goals without scores without lives... It's the most radical of any game developed today. If your used to following a yellow brick road then you will be scared to play this game.

You think it's overrated based on a demo you played? I'm not sure what was in the demo but as Codejerry said this game really just gives you the world and lets you go nuts with it. If you have an imagination it is a fantastic tool to let it go wild.
