GS:Mojang's open-ended sandbox game reaches new sales milestone.
"Minecraft: Pocket Edition passed 10 million sales in May, while the downloadable Xbox 360 version crossed 6 million at the end of March" PC-over 11 million "The disc-based Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition launched earlier this month, and according to creator Markus "Notch" Persson, was the fastest selling console game in the United States last week" Damn,that's a lot of sales right there.

360 version of Minecraft catchup up to PC version in sales. Hehehe.
Faith in humanity restored! :) You all whiny developers, take notice:
1) you don't need a huge budget to create an awesome game
2) even without super realistic graphics a game can be highly addictive, fun and commercially successful
3) stop worrying about piracy, it's irrelevant, if your game is good enough, if you trust gamers and don't apriori treat them as thieves, gamers will repay you
4) originality pays off
