$250,000-a-day Minecraft strikes indie game gold

Sales of one man indie game hit, Minecraft, have surpassed $250,000 per day.

According to stats provided by developer, Mojang, one copy of the $10 game is currently being purchased every 3 seconds, representing sales of more than $12,000 per hour.

The world-building game has been in development for more than one year. It is largely a one man project of experienced Swedish game maker, Markus Persson.

The story is too old to be commented.

Bull. It's total gross is less than $2.5M according to far more reliable sources.

That's a lot, for a game made by a single guy, but it is nowhere near $250K per day.

I don't think it means every day since it came out, I think just recently it's gone to $250000, like it just hit that much in the last couple days. Anyway, not my type of game but good for him.
