Minecraft has now passed 11 million sales on PC according to game creator Mark 'Notch' Peterson.
"Minecraft has now sold 11m copies on PC/Mac/Linux! That's more than the number of atoms in the observable universe,” Notch said via Twitter.
"I frequently receive emails from people who want to 'help monetize http://minecraft.net.' My reply is usually 'No', sometimes 'Go away.'"
"Latest hopeful partner was avg, offering us 20k upfront to bundle it with the Minecraft launcher. No. Not as long as I work here."
Microsoft recently launched a Xbox 360 edition at retail in the US, which is apparently 'off to a record start at retail', while the XBLA version has already sold 6m copies. Add this to the 10m copies on mobile and it seems that Notch should be pretty pleased with himself.
