The popular blocky sandbox game Minecraft is close to 54 million copies sold across all platforms, says Mojang's Patrick Geuder, who also tweeted that the console (Xbox 360 and PS3) versions of the game have now outsold sales of PC and Mac versions. The game will be available on Xbox One, PS4 or Vita in August. The Vita version of the game is Cross-Buy compatible and is free for users who own the PS3 version. Xbox One and PS4 owners who own the game on Xbox 360 or PS3 will be able to download the newer versions for $5. The first time that players played Minecraft began in May 2009 when the alpha version of Minecraft was made available, over two years prior to its official release in November of 2011. MINECRAFT SKINS Mojang and creator Markus "Notch" Persson have been celebrating numerous sales milestones since then, with the most recent noting that 15 million copies of the PC version were sold in April. The Xbox 360 version sold 12 million copies, while the Pocket Edition for iOS or Android has reached 21 million. [Image: Mojang] MINECRAFT
