Over six million copies of Minecraft sold on PC

Writing to his fans on Twitter, Minecraft creator Notch announced that the game has sold six million copies on PC. This is a major milestone and is a victory for the indie gaming scene.

Most interesting is the fact that this figure doesn’t include Xbox 360 sales. In fact, total sales for the game is now estimated to be over 9.2 million copies, making Minecraft one of the most popular games of all time.

The game is still growing. A recent update snapshot gave players a sneak peek at NPC trading and more new features. Developer Mojang is currently working on Cobalt.
