Minecraft Tops PSN Sales for 2014 Across All Three PlayStation Platforms

Minecraft Tops PSN Sales for 2014 Across All Three PlayStation Platforms

Minecraft continues to show its massive appeal, topping PlayStation Network sales for all three current Sony platforms (PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita) in 2015.

Originally released on PC on 2011, Markus "Notch" Persson's creativity-focused indie game has grown into one of the most popular games available today. Among other platforms, it came out on PlayStation 3 in 2013, and on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita last year.

Sony Europe's PSN Store sales charts, published overnight on PlayStation Blog, further cement Minecraft's position in the gaming landscape. It was the best-selling game (as far as digital sales go) for all three platforms, beating out the likes of Grand Theft Auto V, The Last of Us Remastered, Destiny, FIFA 15, and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Sony also revealed that the PS3 version of Minecraft was the single best-selling product across all platforms, while Grand Theft Auto V generated the most revenue. Had PS one Classics not been ranked separately on their own chart, Crash Bandicoot would have been the second most-popular game on PS3, only behind Minecraft, but it wouldn't have even made the top 10 list on PS4. Outlast, on PS4, was the best-selling indie game.

Trials Fusion is a surprise, I wasn't aware so many people loved that game.

My guess would be because it is so darn cheap. I only bought the game (on disc though) because it was only $30, and I haven't even played it yet.

Not really my cup of tea, but I can see why Minecraft is so appealing
