The indie hit Minecraft has passed eight million sold on the PC. This is just two months after the game reached seven million sold on the PC. The game has sold more than 12 million units with all of the versions combined. It is also available for the Xbox 360 and for the Android and iPhone.
"The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales! My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it's grinning!" tweeted Markus 'Notch' Persson.
It was just at the beginning of October when the Xbox 360 version of the game crossed the four million mark. This makes it by far the bestselling Xbox Live Arcade game of all time. The game achieved this mark in less five months.
