Minecraft hits 100 million users, over 14 million sales on PC

February 25, 2014 | By Christian Nutt




Newsbrief: Today, Mojang founder Markus "Notch" Persson tweeted that the original PC version of Minecraft has hit 100 million registered users -- which would exclude players of the hugely popular console and mobile versions of the game. He also said that the company has hit a 14.3 percent conversion rate to paid accounts on those registrations.

In December 2013, Persson tweeted that the PC version of the game had sold 13 million copies. At that time, the Xbox 360 version of the game had also sold 10 million copies.

The game currently sells for $26.95 in U.S. dollars and can only be purchased directly from Mojang.
