Minecraft sales reach 2m

Indie games sensation Minecraft has made over 19 million for its creator Markus Persson, the Swedish developer has said.

Persson explained the early edition of the title had sold about 800,000 copies at €9.95 each, while a later version – sold at €14.95 – had been purchased over a million times.

These transactions would mean Persson has made 19.2 million in revenues from the game.

It all ends up in an account somewhere, and I try not to look at it,” he said in a message exchange with his fans. "I get a normal salary these days for day-to-day stuff, but there’s a big pile somewhere. Paypal takes a cut, there are taxes, and such, but it’s still a huge wad of money.”
