INQ: How big is Mojang’s Minecraft? It’s on the PC, PlayStation, Xbox, iPhone, iPad, and Android devices for starters. It’s sold over 54 million copies total. A report last week indicated that Microsoft wanted to purchase the developer studio and the game for $2 billion. A new report Saturday claims the purchase amount is actually $500,000 higher. Many are wondering why Microsoft would spend that amount of money for a single game franchise.
