Pocket Edition Clears 1 Million Sales!

The popular hand-held version of Minecraft recently cleared one million sales - congratulations, Mojang! It wasn't long ago that we began speculation on when the "1 millionth sale" landmark would be achieved, and it took just shy of two weeks to go from 750,000 sales to this remarkable milestone. Our attention now turns to the 2-million mark; it likely will not be long in coming.

Minecraft - Pocket Edition launched on Xperia Play last summer and quickly became the Android Market's most worldwide-downloaded app. The recent Survival Mode update to the game makes Pocket Edition more of an action-oriented experience, with health bars, weapons and animals included, as well as the addition of more blocks from the PC version of the game. Creative mode continues to see improvements as well; while the portable sandbox isn't expected to be a mirror of its PC counterpart, it nonetheless holds its own as a solid gaming experience.

The XBLA version of the game is still expected to hit consoles in March 2012.
