Creator of all things Minecraft, Markus Persson (aka Notch) announced on his Twitter account, “2.5 million sales! That’s as much as Diablo 1 and Far Cry, according to Wikipedia.”
Ahhhh Wikipedia. You're so inaccurate ;)
its 15 bucks each or something isnt it? Wow, that is alot of money for small team
$14.95 per copy * 2,500,000 sold = $37,375,000 Not bad at all!
Um about 1.6-1.8 mill of those are from alpha. Back then it was $10. For those who got in before beta, they'll get the full game PLUS all DLC and addons for free. Beta buyers will only get the full game. If I remember right that is. Either way, Notch did one hell of a good job making this game.
That's $37,375,000 split between 8 people cause that's how big Mojang Studios is as of 2011. Small studio, big product is the backbone of Indie and PC Gaming. Good Job! European Developers are Kicking ass and making the best games. I think Minecraft gets out of Beta November 11 2011!
Well played notch. well played.
It does not deserve those sales.
good for them! I hope Overgrowth has the same success!! - http://www.youtube.com/watc... - http://www.youtube.com/watc... - http://www.youtube.com/watc... I can't wait to see what the community makes with this game! PC it only does innovation!! Then M$ buys them & calls them exclusive.
I might have to bite and get this. I only hear good things about it but I have no creativity which I could tell from Little Big Planet.
So if they're making so much money, why can't they get better customer support? I've been waiting since December last year for a reply to fix an account problem, yet after countless emails to different adresses I have recived NO FEEDBACK. Its a shame to cos its a brilliant game.
Damn good job Notch. This game is great. Cant wait to see where this game goes. Or the subsequent games that follow.
