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."

I love Minecraft. From time to time when there's a big upgrade, I do a lan party with my brother, his gf and my gf. We build something epic, explore and work together to survive and make our life better. Everyone does what they feel like and you really get a feeling of achievement.

Mojang is TERRIBLE at supporting the game. There are mods out there that literally have hundreds of new things, and they're all balanced and solid. It's inexcusable really.

Scumbag PC Gamers: Whine when there are no mods that the community could do more than the developers. Also whines when there are mods that the community is doing more than the developers.

How many people bought it and checked it out for a week and never touched it again?

Probably a smaller percentage than people who buy a triple A game, beat it once, and never touch it again. Or people who buy a game on a Steam sale for the same price as Minecraft, and then 5 years later still haven't played it even once.
