Nothing stops the Minecraft train. Minecraft continues to show impressive legs as it pulls in new players on a daily basis. Markus Persson, known as Notch to most, announced the original Minecraft has topped 100 million registered users.
Notch also revealed 14.3% of all registered users converted to paid accounts. Potential Minecraft users are required to register for a free account from the Mojang website before purchasing Minecraft. The free account only allows access to the game’s demo.
Just another milestone for a game that earlier in the month sold over 14 million copies since launching on PC and Mac. Other sales numbers include more than 10 million copies on Xbox 360 and over 1 million on Playstation 3.
Minecraft’s success also extends to mobile devices with the ‘Pocket Edition’ selling more than 10 million copies.
Minecraft is only going to get bigger. Mojang (development team responsible for Minecraft) is developing Minecraft editions for the Xbox One and PS4. Look for more millions of sales in the months and years ahead.
The success of Minecraft has been truly incredible. It has fostered an indie scene that continues to grow. Minecraft was the first to prove AAA-esque sales are possible no matter how many people you have working on a game. Now, the indie scene has some of the best games out there. And, Sony and Microsoft are taking notice.
Let us know if you’re one of those millions of sales in the comments below. What would you like to see Notch and Mojang work on next?
