Minecraft PC Surpasses 9 Million Sold Copies

Minecraft modded
Minecraft is a killer app, we already knew that. What’s interesting though is that the game’s sales are not slowing down at all. According to its official site, the PC version of Minecraft has sold over 9 million copies. Guess PC gaming is not dead after all, right? Nevertheless, it’s also astonishing how successful Minecraft, a game with low system requirements, can actually be. We’re also wondering whether a next-gen version of Minecraft would boost those numbers or not.
In case you’ve been locked somewhere without Internet access, Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players worked together to create wonderful, imaginative things.
The current version of Minecraft is 1.4.7, and those interested can purchase it from here (priced at around 20 euros).
