Minecraft on PC Hits 7 Million Copies Sold
It was only last week that it was revealed that Minecraft on the Xbox Live Arcade was selling about 17,000 units a day. Today, there’s even more intense sales news about the indie darling: on PC, the game has sold 7 million copies.
The information came by way of Twitter update from Mojang Business Development Director Daniel Kaplan, who dropped the 7 million figure.
So in addition to being an incredibly good seller on PC, the Xbox version of Minecraft has also notched quite a few sales — over 2 million, to make it the best-selling XBLA game ever. At a rate of 17,000 units per day, that’s about $340,000 daily that the game is earning for Mojang and its creator, Markus “Notch” Persson. Crazy.
