Over 1 Million units?! O.o

How much is the game converted, like 20 bucks? Profit margins done well I'd say.

Notch is just raking in the money. Amazing that he started this project alone :O



So why it's 600k on the leaderboards?

Actually the fundementals of Minecraft are fairly easy in comparison to things, anyone with enough programming skills and low artistic skills could've done this, he was just the fucker lucky enough to do it and be succesfull. :P

offline players. That's why mrstickball also indicates that the true number for most games is higher.
Why would you want to be online to play Fez for example ? Or why would you want to be connected at all times if you don't have a gold account ?

There are a lot of games like that, such as Super Meat Boy.

The other thing I'd note about Minecraft is that, from what I've seen, there are multiple leaderboards, such as a 'normal' leaderboard, and not a global leaderboard. If this is the case, then the numbers would indeed be undertracked. Oddly enough, not everyone will play and update their data on such a board. Toy Soldiers is a good example of that. They have easy, normal hard, and global boards. Only about 60-70% of users will actually accrue statistics on the 'normal' board.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.
