Minecraft on PC sells 8 million12 Nov 2012
In a Tweet from Markus Persson he simply says:
The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales! My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it’s grinning!
I think everyone’s face would be grinning if you had shifted 8 million copies of a game. Well done to Mojang for proving that word of mouth can sell games.
