Yep lol. That's a lot of copies.

Sure is. In fact, according to my calculations that's more than 400.000 copies sold!
Not as much as 500.000 though.

Now Notch will always live in the shadow of Minecrafts success. He's working on a new game and hopefully it will be addicting as well. Hopefully it won't have to live up to Minecrafts expectations.

minecraft is addicting as hell.

Agreed. Since you can do basically anything with it (100s of mods) you can never really get bored with Minecraft.

One of Minecraft's biggest audience is actually little kids. It's the lego of their generation.

Terraria is way better IMO. Wait, I've never played Minecraft. Maybe someday. :)

My daughter bought it on xbl and she loves it. I know it's better on PC but she loves it on xbox anyways.

Ever since it got the 1.8 update with Pistons and Creative Mode, it's been pretty damn good.
