Minecraft Sales Reach 50 Million, Tetris Still No.1
Filed under: MINECRAFT, GAME SALES


Minecraft has been a gaming sensation for years, even before it was released. Its sales figures continue to astonish, with development studio Mojang now confirming that these figures have risen and will continue to rise thanks to the upcoming releases of PS4, PSVita and Xbox One versions.

Mojang's Patrick Geuder tweeted that Minecraft has surpassed 50 million sales: "Minecraft console editions together just passed Minecraft for PC/Mac. And across all platforms we've sold almost 54 million copies."

Markus 'Notch' Persson's game is currently occupies 3rd spot as best-selling video game of all-time. Here's how those numbers breakdown:

  1. Tetris - 143 million copies.
  2. Wii Sports - 82 million copies (since 2006)
  3. Minecraft - 54 million copies

The interesting thing is that incredibly successful triple-A games are much lower than the abovementioned title. GTA V, for instance, sold 34 million, with impending PC, PS4 and Xbox One releases.

I wonder how many people are going to buy GTA 5 twice.
