Minecraft on PS3 have sold over 1 million copies

Mojang: Hello all!
Hope you are enjoying the picking and placing of blocks! Just wanted to let you know that Minecraft on PS3 recently sold over 1 million copies (that has to be some kind of record on PSN, no?). It is crazy considering the game was released just before Christmas last year.

The story is too old to be commented.

yup, waiting for ps4 version because I don't want to be gypped since it might not have ps3 crossbuy. I can wait for it.

1 million so soon? Minecraft is a genuine phenomenon.

Good for them. I don't get this game myself, have never been able to put the time in though. Each to their own :)

You relax and build shit. Everything you see is yours to take and do with it what you can imagine. Pretty much sums up the game.

This game clearly prints money.

Grap1420d ago

well at least it was innovation at it time and they didn't milk it, unlike candy crash and angry birds

Lol i've never even played minecraft but everyone says they love it. Is it really that awesome?

It's ok as long as you play with friends, but if you play by yourself it's kinda boring. I have it on PS3 and haven't played it for like a month now, and before that I played it like, maybe 5 times. Its's not worth $20 in my opinion, unless you play it with friends.

IMO it's an acquired taste.. I've tried the PC and 360 versions and after a hour I'm bored out of my mind.

Seen some amazing structures for it, just not for me.. might be for you though.

My boys love it.

I can't honestly stand to be in the same room when they play Minecraft. It looks and plays tedious,slow and boring. IMO. Even the music put's me to sleep!

So I was a mean Dad and deleted it off the Playstation. Now they play it on a laptop in their room. With the door shut. And headphones on. :)

I play the PC version and I know the console versions are a little more limited in comparison but the basics should still apply. With that said, it's not a "normal" game. It's somewhat slow paced at times but even if you are playing single player Survival, there is almost a constant tension to get something done before sundown and get under cover or the stress of exploring underground and suddenly opening up an underground cave system full of creepers, skeletons and zombies.

Similar to Don't Starve, there is a bit of a learning curve as there is no official tutorial and you either experiment and die a lot, use the various Internet resources to research what to do or use a phone app like Minecraft Canary. Once you know how to craft basic items like torches, a pick and a shovel, you can concentrate on gathering food and exploring but there is always the constant threat of falling, creepers (even in the daytime), lava pools above and below ground, Endermen, etc. There are a lot of things to find, craft and use to protect yourself and use to make surviving easier. Everything from weapons and armor to redstone creations that is the magic "electricity" to let you make various moving and operating creations. Everything from automatic doors to very basic, but functioning, computers inside your Minecraft world.

Playing multiplayer has it's own issues and you can either cooperate or raid and destroy. Some prefer to just build stuff and there is a mode without all the survival aspects and enemies that gives you unlimited blocks to build and create whatever you want. Some go for the abstract like pixelated game character 3D models, others go for architectural designs of real or imagined buildings. Still others duplicate other things in the Minecraft medium such as Tolkien's Middle Earth and Martin's Game of Thrones. It's a pixelated, 3D canvas where you can create almost anything you want where a lot of the more tedious laws of physics are suspended and unlike Legos when you were a kid, you never run out of blocks of a particular color, lol. Just my .02

The better game, yes. But Minecraft is the better sandbox. Both games are great, I just think that Minecraft is overhyped these days...for a game that printed tons of money it evolves too slow. Mojamg should hire more people imo.

Lord_Sloth1420d ago

I wish they would fuze them.

Um, how exactly do you compare LBP to Minecraft? They're completely different.
