Minecraft earned $350,000 in a single day

Minecraft earned in upwards of $350,000 in revenue last Wednesday alone.

Via m00d: For just over a month now I have been logging Minecraft sales data, the following is that data charted in many fantastical ways. As you can see, there are multiple points where a spike in sales was seen, the most notable are the TF2 blog plug and the Machinima directors (SeaNanners etc) videos that have driven many sales. For information on each point rollover and it will give you the date and exact figure, dates are formatted month.day! Any references made to time are GMT.

The story is too old to be commented.

Is it possible Seananners had something to do with this. His Minecraft videos have easily over a hundred thousand views some near 500,000. He definitely introduced many gamers to this game.

Actually i think it was davidr64yt, he has been doing a series of Minecraft videos on youtube for a while now, Seananners got the idea to do it from him.

Still I think he's ever so slightly more popular than david. I think that was the first episode Seananners referenced him.

one man just silenced an entire idustry that believed extreme production costs were the future of gaming.

I've been saying this for a long long time already. The pc crowd was humbled after crysis. Graphics are not everything.

Gameplay > ALL

this one dev just pocketed more cash than any dev at Infinity Ward or Bungie. Possibly Valve and Blizzard also.

Yeah Seananners has done alot to promote this game.

I don't think it's any one guy. Pretty much every gaming media site out there is talking about it! It's like an internet gaming wide phenomenon at the moment, and rightly so.
