SystemLink: "In a self-explanatory tweet from Notch, aka Markus Persson, the mind behind Minecraft, the addictive builder/miner/zombie killer/whatever you want to call it has got more than 10 million registered users."
Markus Persson is a self made millionaire ! the game cost`s 14.95 Euro ~ 15.00 Euro has over 10000000 users and growing calculation: 15,-Euro * 10000000 users = 150000000 Euros this guy basically did develop mincraft on its own, since 2009. a xperia play version, and xbox-live version is also in development. that means even more cash $$$$$ ! of course he has to pay taxes and that other stuff but in the end i think he is going to make around 100 million Euro net in cash. for the work hi did in 2 or 3 years, that sound pretty awesome to me ! respect Markus ! enjoy the mony Markus ! $$$ $$$ $$$ !
10 million registered users, no buyers.
Registered users not buyers. Minecraft has sold over 2 million copies but yeh he's well paid.
yup i believe he hit the 1 mil mark when it was just him. he still has less than 10 people working for him. A shame he's soon to be under M$'s thumb.
Why would you say that? They're not even making the Xbox port.
3 million people bought the game.. Still good money though!
My damn laptop won't even run Minecraft Classic good.
don't tell me you have the kind of laptop that if thieves broke into your house they wouldn't steal it but they would leave a bunch of Bestbuy ads underneath it. or if you left it on the front seat of your car someone would break in and replace it with a new one. just joking w/ u
