Indie smash hit Minecraft has surpasse 10 million registered users, according to creator Markus "Notch" Persson, with over a quarter of those paying for the game.

The 10 million free registration mark was surpassed Friday, according to official statistics. Of the 10,008,005 registered users recorded at press time, 2,675,185 -- nearly 27 percent -- have purchased the game.

A Kinect-enabled version of the game for Xbox 360 is in the works, as is a mobile version. While both iOS and Android versions have been announced, its mobile debut will be on the Anroid, via the Xperia Play.

The online game, which encourages player creativity, is still in beta.
