That's right, the PC version of Minecraft has surpassed 7 million sales! In addition to blowing the lid off of XBLA sales records, and continuing to set incredible landmarks in the handheld market, Minecraft also has over 37 million registered users!
Minecraft as a game continues to have a phenomenal level of success, with humble beginnings in the hands of Mojang founding member Markus "Notch" Persson, and growing over a period of years into one of the most successful indie game titles in gaming history. In addition, the recent changes to Minecraft in 1.3.1 - and future changes planned for 1.4, including Mod API support, more adventure map options, and more - are setting the stage for a whole new generation of game. In many ways, the upcoming changes will allow people to custom-tailor Minecraft to their liking with minimal effort and hassle, paving the way for the ultimate user-made experience.
Congratulations to Mojang for the amazing sales milestone, and to everyone out there in the Minecraft community for making it what it is today!
that's about $168000000, give or take a few $10000s, just from the PC WOW! THEY'RE RICH But that's not in their currency, and it's not 100% accurate, but that's still a LOT of money. They still need to pay for other things, so that shaves off a few $$$. Can I just borrow a bit? Maybe a lot...
