"The unabated popularity of Minecraft is simply staggering. Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Microsoft have announced that it’s now sold a staggering 176 million copies, putting on an extra 20 million in the seven months since MineCon last September.
That new figure is important, because it surpasses the last known figure for Tetris, which stood at 170 million as of 2010 – 70 million physical and 100 million mobile downloads. Of course, Tetris sales haven’t stood still since then, with recent iterations such as Tetris Effect and Tetris 99 adding to that figure, but the rate at which Minecraft has been selling, it’s almost sure to surpass the classic puzzler sooner rather than later. The fact that Microsoft aren’t currently stating that it’s the best selling game of all time means that they aren’t there just yet."
The sales numbers came with the full unveil of the new Minecraft Earth AR mobile game. It's one of my favorite games so i'm glad it's now number one.
