It was only back in January that I wrote about Minecraft passing the 1 million sales mark, well this week the indie blockbuster created by Independent developer Markus Persson, has now passed 2 million sales, just over 3 months later.

So far 7,076,319 people have registered and 2,016,824 people bought Minecraft which equates to 28.5 percent. If you fancy giving Minecraft a go it’s still on sale for €14.95, with a 25% discount active for the duration of the beta. After which the price will sell for €20
