$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!

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.
