Minecraft Hits the 8 Million Sales Mark

Posted on November 13, 2012 AT 03:08am

It doesn’t look like Minecraft sales are going to be slowing down anytime soon as the game has just passed the 8 million sales milestone just a few months after hitting 7 million.

“The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales,” said series creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson via Twitter. “My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it’s grinning.” The game has added another million copies to its sales total since the announcement of 7 million sales was made back in August.

It’s not just the PC version of the game that’s doing well either, the Xbox 360 version of the game passed the four million sales mark last month, according to developer 4J Studios.
