Minecraft builds past 8 million sold mark

Notch, can I borrow $5,000?

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.
