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
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,
will kick off on November 18 in Las Vegas.
