Minecraft Sales Pass 1 Million Mark

Markus “Notch” Persson, creator of the phenomenally popular PC title Minecraft, just announced via Twitter that sales for the block-based building/survival game have now surpassed 1 million copies. This would be an impressive achievement for any game, but the fact that Minecraft just went beta last month is just remarkable.


As of this writing, 1,000,190 people have “bought” Minecraft. This figure refers to users who have created premium accounts, which includes people who purchased the game and gifted it to a friend. I don’t have the official stats yet, but I’m pretty sure Stephen “M-M-Minecraft!” Johnson personally gifted over 45,056 copies to friends, family, and colleagues, but I’ll let you know when I nail down those figures.

How many of those 1 million copies were you responsible for buying?

Should the need arise, feel free to E-Mail me your tips, suggestions, and/or personal philosophies, or follow me on Twitter.
