 Minecraft: Pocket Edition  sells 700K copies
Minecraft: Pocket Edition sells 700K copies
January 19, 2012 | By Tom Curtis




Newsbrief: It's been just a few months since its debut, but Mojang's Android-based Minecraft: Pocket Edition has now sold more than 700,000 copies, said company employee Daniel Kaplan via Twitter.

These numbers bode quite well for the app, especially considering it currently bears a (relatively hefty) price tag of $6.99 on the Android Market.

Minecraft: Pocket Edition first launched in August as a timed exclusive for Sony's Xperia Play, and debuted on additional Android devices near the end of September.

By comparison, Mojang's flagship version of Minecraft recently reached 4 million units sold.
