Minecraft has sold 13 million copies

Minecraft

It's been a while since I played Minecraft, and frankly, I wish I could go back to it. The addictiveness of the game is overwhelming.

It recent news, Minecraft has sailed past 13 million copies, creator and Mojang boss Markus “Notch” Persson has confirmed, giving an official statement consisting of the single word “whoa”.

Just a reminder that we’re only talking about the original Minecraft here – Minecraft “Prime”, as it were – which is available on PC and Mac.

If we want to talk about the console, Raspberry Pi and mobile versions, then, well – things get even more real. The Xbox 360 version has done 10 million, Microsoft confirmed this week, and at last count in May, so had the Pocket Edition.

It’s coming to Xbox One, Vita, PS3 and PS4, too, at which point we expect the number of copies of Minecraft sold to overtake actual devices, create a black hole, and suck as all into a nightmare alternate universe of creepers and tree punching.
