Notch’s face makes “grinning sounds” as Minecraft sells 8 million

Markus Persson - aka 'Notch' (Image found at What’s that racket? Where is that noise coming from?

It’s difficult to place, but… it almost sounds as though someone is grinning…

And wouldn’t you know it, someone’s face is curling at the edges, and that face belongs to none other than Markus Persson (better known as Notch), the creator of the wildly successful and popular world building game, Minecraft.

Why would Notch be grinning so hard that noises are emanating from his visage?

It appears as though Minecraft on PC has just reached eight million units sold! From a tweet by Notch:

“The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales! My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it’s grinning!”

The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft isn’t doing too badly, either, having passed the three million mark earlier this year – that number is sure to have increased since July, though, with great support from developer 4J with the latest 1.8.2 patch, and a follow-up patch arriving soon, too.

Are you playing Minecraft?
