Minecraft Hits 9 Million Sales, Pocket Edition Updates Coming

Minecraft - 9 Million Sales, and Counting
_________________________________




That's right, the PC version of Minecraft has surpassed 9 million sales! Minecraft as a game continues to have a phenomenal level of success, with humble beginnings in the hands of Mojang founding member Markus "Notch" Persson, and growing over a period of years into one of the most successful indie game titles in gaming history. In addition, the recent changes to Minecraft in 1.4.7 - and future changes planned the game, including Mod API support, more adventure map options, and all sorts of customization options, including the highly anticipated Redstone Update - Mojang continues to push the game to new heights, even as they get involved in the community, with everything from direct-feedback bug fixing to real-life renewal projects.





Pocket Edition Update 0.6.0 Now Submitted
