Minecraft Looking at PlayStation—When Its Exclusive Deal With the 360 Ends

Minecraft on the Xbox 360 is no joke. In October, it briefly dethroned Call of Duty as the Xbox 360's most-played game, and is still a solid No. 2 five months later. So its viability as a console title isn't in question.


Mojang is considering a PlayStation version, said Jens Bergstein, the lead designer of Minecraft's mobile editions, once Mojang's exclusive deal with Microsoft is over. "But Wii U is very unlikely," he told iGamer.

Minecraft's Xbox Live version released in May; it's unknown how long the game's exclusive pact with Microsoft will last, but it was a big on-stage announcement at Microsoft's E3 2011 keynote. Minecraft, in less than a year, has become the best-selling Xbox Live game of all time, by a mile, and sold nearly half a million copies on Christmas Eve.
