Minecraft on PC sells 8 million

Fans of Notch’s Minecraft will be pleased to hear that the PC version of the blocky building game has now sold a whopping 8 million units.

In a Tweet from  Markus Persson he simply says:

The PC version of Minecraft just passed 8 million sales! My face is making grinning sounds, so I assume it’s grinning!

I think everyone’s face would be grinning if you had shifted 8 million copies of a game. Well done to Mojang for proving that word of mouth can sell games.
