Minecraft passes 10 million users

Another milestone Notched up.

PC indie phenomenon Minecraft now has in excess of 10 million registered users, creator Markus 'Notch' Persson's has revealed in his blog.

According to the stats page on the game's official site, the total number of registered users currently sits at 10,005,304 of which 2,674,372 have actually bought the game.

With the game currently selling for €14.95, that adds up to around £32 million in revenue to date for tiny Swedish developer Mojang.

To give you an idea at the rate in which the game is growing, 42,074 new players registered in the last 24 hours, with 10,167 laying down cash.

A new update went live for the game this week, with a further patch planned before it finally leaves beta and is officially released in November. It's also due out on Xbox Live Arcade later this year.
