Minecraft Sells 2.5M, Notch Interview

Minecraft originator Notch Tweets about sales of the indie sensation: "2.5 million sales! That's as much as Diablo 1 and FarCry, according to Wikipedia." On a related note, there's a video interview with Notch on PC Gamer where they spoke with him at E3. Along the way he expresses his ambition to make his game more of a game: "Reviewing Minecraft now would be kind of unfair because there are things we want to fix before then… I want to make Minecraft feel more be more like a game – so you can actually win it."

Fools, Notch isn't changing anything intrinsic about the game, if you enjoy building without combat or enemies then that will always be available on easy mode. The stuff he's (likely) adding is content that will make higher difficulties more interesting, as well as content that will make exploring more compelling and rewarding; thus why the next update (1.7) is called the "Adventure Update."

So annoying how whenever Notch adds or announces some new feature the whole community acts like the rug is being swept out from underneath them. Ridiculous.
