Console sales of the popular sandbox title Minecraft have apparently surpassed sales of those on the Windows and Mac version, according to developer Mojang.

Taking to Twitter to share the news was Mojang's Patric Geuder, who announced that all versions of Minecraft has sold nearly 54 million units across all platforms. That is a huge amount of punching wood, and further pushes Minecraft as a huge commercial hit for creator Markus "Notch" Persson.

Sales for Minecraft have been a continuing climb ever since its original debut way back in 2009, and the upcoming launch on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One will no doubt fuel that fire forever more. Last known combined sales were at 34 million in February of this year.

Thus leading me to believe that console people are dumb. Why play a s*** version when you can play the better version on your parents PC?

How you waste your time is offensive to me. At least I have the decency to waste my time properly.

More importantly ... how rich is this guy now!

Exactly. Most the Minecraft crowd are kids. The PC community these days isn't really the place for younglings is it.

Even parents know that consoles are so limited that their kids are safer as a result.
