Game Overview

MineCraft is a sandbox-building video game originally by created by Swedish creator Markus "Notch" Persson and now by his company, Mojang. The game was originally released on May 17th 2009 on Microsoft Windows as a development alpha version but has since been ported to OSX, iOS, AndroidXbox 360, Xbox One, the PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation 4.

The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Gameplay in its commercial release has three principal modes: survival, which requires players to acquire resources and maintain their health and hunger; and creative, where players have an unlimited supply of resources, the ability to fly, and no health or hunger.

Such a great port on the powerhouse
handheld system, really deserves all the
sales it gets, the digital sales of this
title could push it closer to the 3m
mark when you consider there is a lot of
perks to picking it up digitally, I got
it on Vita from PSN knowing that I would
also gain access to the ps3 version, and
on buying a ps4 you can get the nextgen
upgrade purchase of this from psn for
about 2-3 euros instead of the full
price again.

Digital sales should be
very high I would think based on that.

Adding to
that the confirmed 300k digital sales in
Japan and you should have over 2.5M

This game may very well be the Vita's
only 2 million seller in its entire life
cycle, and it's game that's owned by
Microsoft on top of that.
