PC Minecraft Sells 8 Million

The Mojang Website has word that the phenomenal success of Minecraft continues, revealing the indie construction game has now sold more than eight million copies on the PC. To put this in perspective, they note that according to the Wikipedia, this makes it the ninth bestselling PC game of all time, ahead of such luminaries as StarCraft II, Myst, and Diablo II. In response to this, Notch has provided a message, which is either encoded, or really badly mistyped: "69I960EHE0A4A0IVG0EHE02500R4R0G1T30PLJ00V6V0EHE0V1U01V10U5U0VGV0V4R."

Ye poor souls; that's at least 8 million sets of eyes subjected to the horror that is Minecraft's 'artwork.'

Still, very impressive, even if I found Terraria to be more entertaining than Minecraft.

Sphax BDCraft texture pack. I don't play with default textures.

I put about 60 hours into Terraria, which is pretty impressive for a game I paid less than $3 for. I've put hundreds into Minecraft. I agree that Terraria is more game-like. I only built what I needed to build. I didn't feel much urge to make things simply for the sake of making them. Modded Minecraft can be more game-like. (There's even a Terraria mod for it).

Hrm, that texture pack looks... dangerous. I could easily stand to look at that and start playing Minecraft for real. Now the question is, should I risk possibly adding that level of addiction to my existence?
