Minecraft PC's 9M copies make up nearly half of total sales

Minecraft PC

If the Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition sales from Christmas day weren't impressive enough, the PC version's total and the game's lifetime sales ought to make your jaw drop.

Developer Jens Bergensten revealed over Twitter today that PC sales had reached 9 million, bringing overall sales across platforms to 20 million. Minecraft is available on PC, Xbox 360, Android, and iOS.

He wrote, "But [Minecraft Pocket Edition] beats all: in November 2012 it was at ~5 million sold copies, this week it's at 7.3 million and not slowing down."

We suspected as much last week, when we reported that the 360 version had overtaken its PC counterpart last year.
