Minecraft surpasses one million sales, still in beta photo



Last week, Maurice pointed out to me that Minecraft sales were dangerously close to reaching 1 million. (The game's site shows that figure.) I told him I might as well wait until that threshold was crossed. Well, here I am, telling you that this inevitable event was, in fact, inevitable.

Tremendous news for Mojang Specifications, which has in recent times become an honest-to-God development studio with an office and multiple employees. That's the power of Minecraft. I cannot wait to see what else they have in store.
