Yes take heed suits. Creativity and originality pays.
I mean, come on, I thought the bad sales were the pirates' fault? Bad PC! Bad PC! Baaaad...


Considering the relatively small size of the game and the ease at which one can find a cracked version, it seems to me that PC gamers just want quality PC games and are more than willing to pay for them. Also, Notch's engagement of and attention to customers, the modability of the game helping to create a large fan/mod community, and the high bang-for-buck ratio didn't hurt either.
And the concept was original, and clearly just the right amount of "sandbox" to make gamers take notice. You could have 100 PC exclusives with those same features and not have them sell anywhere near 6 million titles. Concept and luck aligned nicely in Minecraft's favour.
