The PlayStation 3 version of Minecraft has sold over a million copies since release, Mojang has confirmed.
The company's business developer Daniel Kaplan posted a short news story on the Mojang website announcing the milestone. Given that the PlayStation 3 version of the game was released on December 17 in North America and December 18 in Europe, this means it reached the million sales mark in just its first five weeks on sale.
"Minecraft: PS3 Edition comes with everything present in other console versions," said Mojang's Owen Hill when the game originally launched. "They're pretty much identical to play, and will be developed in tandem from now on."
Downloadable skins and texture packs will be available on PSN shortly after the game launches, and while Hill did not confirm that PlayStation-exclusive content would be coming he did say it "would be cool", adding: "Fingers crossed, eh?"
Minecraft was announced for PS3, PS4 and Vita in August 2013. The company has said on Twitter that the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game are further back in its development queue.
The Xbox One version of Minecraft was announced at E3 in June. Building off the 360 version, it promises "larger maps for more complex structures, expanded multiplayer features and enhanced gameplay".
In December it was announced that the PC version of Minecraft had sold 13 million copies, with the Xbox 360 version selling another 10 million.
