Just in time for the big Halloween update Minecraft had sold more than 500 000 copies. About a month ago it had ‘only’ sold 250 000 copies. I must say I didn’t expect the sales to continue at this mind-blowing rate. As of right now the game has sold 524 727 copies and it still sells about 7500 copies a day. That is a really big pile of money the game makes, every day! About 100 000 dollars per day with some rough calculations.
I will write about the Halloween update in a later post, a bit late I know but I want to play it a bit for myself first. :)

Minecraft has now sold more than 250 000 copies, 256 531 right now to be more exact. That’s not bad for a game that is still in alpha, not bad at all. In fact, that’s not bad for any game.
Game sales have slowed down a bit lately but there were still 6500 people who bought a copy in the last 24 hours. That equals 65000 euros in the last 24 hours or in dollars: $87100.
In total the game will soon have made 3.5 million dollars for it’s creator. Considering that it only took a little more than a year, and it was created by mostly one guy that is a really crazy amount of money.
