Following the ‘grinning sounds’ that the face of Markus ‘Notch’ Persson made as Minecraft on PC reached sales of eight million units, the game’s creator revealed that the franchise racked up over 450 000 units in sales on December 24th across all platforms -
Notch tweeted:

“Across all platforms, Minecraft sold 453k copies on dec 24! Wowzers!”

That’s not even the half of it, though. Before 2012 ticked on over to 2013, developer 4J Studios revealed that Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has so far managed to find its way into the hands of over five million gamers on the platform. The studio tweeted:

“On New Year’s Eve 2012, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition passed 5 million sales!”

Are you a part of the phenomenon? Have you bought and played Minecraft on PC or Xbox 360, or on an Android or iOS device?
