Newsbrief: The tiny Raspberry Pi computer has sold more than 2.5 million units worldwide since it was released two years ago, says the team behind the device -- that's around 500,000 sold in the last three months.

The device, which was designed to help teach programming to students, originally sold 1 million in its first year. It would appear that demand for the computer is still very much there.

Of course, there are plenty of factors that will have helped sales of the Raspberry Pi grow, such as the online distribution store that launched at the end of 2012, and the reveal of Minecraft: Pi Edition.

Game developers should consider the Raspberry Pi as an experimental development tool. While it may not fit the bill as your main game delivery platform, it is certainly one of the most innovative and inspiring micro controllers out there. I had the pleasure of presenting and hacking on the Minecraft Pi edition API at Mincon 2013 and the response from attendees was very positive. It was very cool of Mojang to give insight into the Pocket Edition API via the Pi Edition. I've also seen a lot of retro Game console emulation done with the RP. If you haven't owned one yet you should try it.
