Jeepers creepers! Crikey! Jawch! Inoffensive exclamation native to your home country! Minecraft has sold 8 million copies on PC and Mac. That’s a lot. Not as many as the The Sims 2 or Half-Life 2, but more than the Sims 2: Pets and Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty according to this page. It’s a big number, basically.

I asked Jeb for some words to highlight the awesomeness of the sales and got this back: “I can’t think of anything clever to say. It’s simply amazing.”

Thanks for buying Minecraft everyone! Have a lovely day. :D

What a fantastic milestone! And such a deserving game. Now if only they could take all that money and iron out a few glitches, I'm sure even more people would buy it!
