Microsoft Minecraft

Microsoft’s Mojang Studios today announced that Minecraft: Pocket Edition have been downloaded over 30 million times. It is important to note that Minecraft: Pocket Edition is not a free game. It costs about $6.99! I guess 30 million is a great number for a game of such high price in today’s mobile world.

From Mojang team,

Everyone likes big numbers, right? I know I do. Here’s a stonker: 30,000,000! You good people have bought Minecraft: Pocket Edition over 30 million times. Thanks!

Let’s put that into perspective: if each Pocket Edition sale was an average sized dog, and you walked said dog every day with a retractable leash in moderate temperatures across uneven terrain, it would consume approximately 290,566,788^3 kj of energy. I know. It’s a big number.

To celebrate the sales milestone, we’re planning a question and answer session with the devs. It will be broadcast LIVE on the internet. And you get to supply the questions.

Game Description:

Minecraft is a game about placing blocks and going on adventures. Pocket Edition includes Survival and Creative modes, multiplayer over a local Wi-Fi network, infinite worlds, caves, new biomes, mobs, villages and lots more. Craft create and explore anywhere in the world so long as you have hands spare and battery to burn. There’s never been a better time to enjoy Minecraft on the move.
