The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft has sold more than 12 million copies, according to a post made by Mojang’s Daniel Kaplan over on Xbox Wire. The previous milestones the game has achieved on other platforms include over 14 million units on PC, and over a million units on Playstation 3.

While the Xbox 360 version of the game launched way back in 2012, the Playstation 3 version launched back in December of last year. In comparison, the Xbox 360 version sold over a million units in its first week, while the Playstation 3 version took a bit longer and raked in a million units over a month’s time. Both versions have been getting extra content via downloadable content released after the initial release, however the most requested feature is “probably bigger worlds.”

“We’re pushing the limitations of the 360 in various different ways and we will continue doing that,” Kaplan said. “However, bigger worlds would require the guarantee of a hard drive on each 360; since not all 360’s ship with hard drives that makes things tricky. Luckily, on Xbox One, that’s not an issue.”

The game is still coming to Playstation Vita, Playstation 4, and Xbox One, although the final release dates for those platforms have not been confirmed yet.
