Sales of indie phenomenon soar ahead of Xperia Play and Kinect release

Minecraft sales top 2.5 million

Minecraft, the world-building indie project, has been sold more than 2.5 million times on PC, the game’s creator has revealed.

Markus Persson posted a message on Twitter that read: “2.5 million sales! That’s as much as Diablo 1 and Far Cry, according to Wikipedia.”

The news comes just days after Microsoft announced a Kinect-compatible version would be coming to Xbox 360 by the end of the year.

Minecraft is also due for release on mobile devices such as iOS and Android, after a period of exclusivity on Sony’s Xperia Play.
