Minecraft Xbox 360, PS3 outsells Minecraft PC

The best-selling version of Minecraft is no longer the PC.

Developer Mojang took to Twitter today to announce Xbox 360 and PS3 versions have combined to surpass Minecraft's Windows PC and Mac offerings in sales.

Microsoft debuted the title on Xbox 360 some 18 months after it originally launched. Sony's PS3 began carrying the game more than two years following the November 2011 worldwide release on Windows PC.

The studio confirmed this past February that the two computer platforms had tallied more than 14m units sold, while the Xbox 360 edition sold past 12m copies between retail and digital sales as of April.

Also in February Mojang confirmed Minecraft has sold 14 million copies on PC.

Adding in mobile platforms, Mojang states the indie phenomenon has sold nearly 54m copies across all platforms.
