Minecraft Console Edition

More People Now Own Minecraft on Console Than PC


Mojang recently announced that sales of the console versions of Minecraft have now outstripped PC and Mac.

Despite having fewer features than the PC version, the console Minecraft editions have now sold more copies, Mojang’s  data analysis guy Patrick Geuder Saga tweeted.

“Minecraft console editions together just passed Minecraft for PC/Mac,” he said. “And across all platforms, we’ve sold almost 54 million copies.”

Exactly how that 54 million breaks down by platform, Mojang has not revealed, although we do know the Xbox 360 version alone has sold more than 12 million.

Expect consoles to become an even more common way to play Minecraft as versions come to the PS4, PlayStation Vita, and Xbox One this August.
