Minecraft may come to PlayStation, Wii U “unlikely”

Indie smash hit Minecraft could launch on PlayStation platforms in the future, but a Wii U release isn’t on the cards.

Jens Bergensten, lead designer of Minecraft Pocket Edition at Swedish studio Mojang, told iGamer (via Edge): "Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles. When it runs out we'll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely."

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition sales have surpassed five million copies since the title’s release last May, helping make it the most purchased Xbox Live Arcade game of 2012. The franchise has shifted over 20 million copies across all platforms. Mojang reportedly brought in just under $100 million in profits last year.
