You know your game is doing well on the sales board when your only competitor is Tetris.

176m sold. 200m registered in China. Does that mean Chinese users didn't buy?

I was wondering about that as well. Does that just mean China has a massive piracy problem?

I recall (possibly incorrectly) that Minecraft has a F2P version for China.

How does this rank compared to other top game series? Especially in revenue since minecraft costs $20, far less than most video games.

If every copy was sold for $20 that about $3.5 billion in revenue. In terms of sales its now the bets selling game.
