Minecraft PC Sells $10MM; "Subtly" Teases Horses

Mojang's Jens Bergensten tweets about the sales success of the PC edition of Minecraft, as the indie sensation continues to perform sensationally. He says: "Minecraft (PC) has hit 10M! As promised, a subtle hint on the main 1.6 feature (thanks @ebbakier): http://imgur.com/qAuCLex :D" The "subtle hint" is a photo of a pleasant lady with a horse, so obviously they plan to add pleasant ladies to the sandbox construction game. Thanks GameSpot.

I'm not clicking on any link that says "photo of a pleasant lady with a horse"
In this case it really is what it says it is. Its SFW too (blue generally warns if a link is NSFW). Its also family appropriate.

Blue, there's a diff between $10 million (bucks) and 10 million (copies).
He's sold 10 million copies, but made something like $200+ million on the game.
If he made only $10 mil on the game, he wouldn't be nearly the sensation, and it would have only been about 500k copies.

Which is pretty impressive. That probably makes it one of the highest all time sellers certainly of PC games, and probably still pretty high even when including consoles.

Wait, you complain that vanilla is to bland, and then complain FTB is too much stuff? Nice.

Your mom. Tekkit has as much stuff if not more, except that it doesn't make the world look stupid and keeps things manageable and in the spirit of minecraft.

I actually play FTB now, but that's because I got bored of Tekkit...

The problem with FTB is that it adds WAAAAY too many mineral types. It looks dumb and there's just too much stuff to take note of.

They're doing a terrrible job of updating the game.
Modders have done soooo much more.

I'd settle for a few new monster types to fight.

What mods do people rec?

Tekkit. Doesn't add too much crap to the world, but there's an assload of new items that you can craft. Many overpowered, but require tons of materials. It adds a lot of high level gameplay and is the only way to go if you want to create amazing structures outside of creative mode.

Oh, I don't think so. I still prefer vanilla Minecraft to any of the mods. There are a lot of good ones, but I like to keep it simple.

I went around the block enough times with the vanilla minecraft that there's no reason to play it more. All I'm saying is that they're barely doing any work on the game while modders do a shitload and it's much harder for them.

I wish there was a way to run a server and turn off certain things. I want the new cart mechanics, biome updates, and such for example, but I don't want XP, alchemy or enchanting. I basically want an updated version of how it was before it went actual release.
Couldn't you just ignore the alchemy and enchanting? There is nothing forcing you to use either. Same for the experience, yeah -- you'll get it, but just ignore it. *shrug*

Yeah I think that's fair to say. Cart Boosters were stupid but also fun and made getting around a lot more enjoyable, I've never cared for the official powered rail implementation and speeds.

For me Minecraft jumped the shark when they disabled cart boosters. And I can only facepalm at people who say "but they were never intended to work anyway."

I've gone cold turkey on Minecraft, haven't played since August of last year. Guess I'll jump back in when 1.6 is release.
