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.
