Minecraft proves that a great indie game with a nice marketing campaign can actually sell quite well on a dead platform. Notch’s little gem has finally surpassed 4 million sold copies, a number that a lot of triple-A games would like to achieve on the PC. To be more accurate, Minecraft currently has 16,051,591 registered users, of which 4,000,043 (24.92%) have bought the game.
In addition, in the last 24 hours, 57,314 people registered, and 11,655 people bought the game. Pretty amazing numbers, right?
In case you have been living under a rock or something, Minecraft is a game about placing blocks to build anything you can imagine. At night monsters come out, so make sure to build a shelter before that happens.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
