November 13, 2012 -

Another day, another milestone met for Mojang's ultra popular sandbox building game, Minecraft. It has managed to surpass the 8 million sales mark on the PC platform, according to a tweet from Mojang co-founder and Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson.

"The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales," said series Persson via Twitter.

"My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it's grinning," he added.

The PC version of the game sold a million copies since it hit its last milestone of 7 million in August. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition recently surpassed four million sales as of October 1, according to developer 4J Studios.

If they would get their heads out of their a**e* they could be at 20 million by now. SO many broken promises, outdated code, and broken systems. It's really getting sad.

I wonder how successful it's going to wind up being? Can it beat Super Mario Bros. 2? Or SMB3?

Re: Minecraft for PC Sells 8 Million Copies To-Date

well, not much to say other then congratulations to Notch, he has achieved what many indie game developers dream off: making a living off their games. And not only that, but making Mojang into a company. I honestly thought sales would start to die down by now, but man was I wrong! Now, will Minecraft reach 10 million sales? I guess we'll find out

Re: Minecraft for PC Sells 8 Million Copies To-Date

Well, it's already 12 M if you count the two together...
