Markus "Notch" Persson has confirmed via Twitter that the PC version of Minecraft has passed the 8 million sold mark.
"The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales!" Tweeted Notch. "My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it's grinning!"
I'm sure his grins sound like dollar bills rubbing together. Wadding together. His entire facial muscle structure is made up of currency fibers. 8 million is nuts for a game that dropped about this time last year. Congrats, Notch.
