Notch Has Money

Everyone knows there are a lot of people playing Minecraft, but the sales milestones Notch keeps tweeting still manage to make us feel dizzy. Today he announced that 3 million copies of Minecraft have been sold so far. Last month we reported that Minecraft boasted 10 million registered users, of which nearly 2.7 million were paid copies. That means that Mojang have sold a staggering 300,000 copies in the last 30 days. At just under £13 each, we're now waiting for Notch to announce his intention to buy the moon.

Purchasers of the Humble Indie Bundle #3 can get a taste of Minecraft until 14th August. With the highly anticipated Adventure Update still on the horizon, sales are unlikely to slow down in the coming months. Minecraft will get a full release in November and Mojang are throwing a party to celebrate. The Minecraft convention, Minecon will kick off on November 18 in Las Vegas.
