The lights are on
Mojang said today Minecraft for PC and Mac has now sold over eight million copies to date.
"That’s a lot," said Mojang's Owen Hill. "Not as many as the The Sims 2 or Half-Life 2, but more than the Sims 2: Pets and Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty according to this page. It’s a big number, basically."
Minecraft on Xbox Live Arcade recently surpassed 4 million sales and even overtook Call of Duty as the most played game on the service for a week.
So add in Xbox and you get 12 million. That's awesome.
I just got back into it with a friend. It's kind of turned into one of those classics that you will pick up a some point down the road. Doesn't surprise me it's still selling. More than something like SC II however is remarkable.
good! it's a fantastic game and the modding community is extending it's life tenfold.
Having sold more units than Star Craft II is a feat.
I am glad that Minecraft is getting it's dues.Fun game for all.
*laughs* Of course this game did better than Sims 2: Pets.... Did anyone even like Sims 2: Pets? Not really a good comparison, Owen Hill.
