Minecraft - 10 Million Users

The open-world-game Mincecraft is only at beta phase but has just passed ten million users nevertheless.

Marcus Persson, founder of the popular game Minecraft, has tweeted the news.

This is no full press release, only a tweet. So we don't know about active/inactive accounts or further details. The game is only during beta phase but has already this huge amount of players, the exact release date is set to November 11, 2011. For people who don't know Minecraft: You can place blocks to build anything you want but the first thing should be a simple shelter because at night monsters come out.

If you want to purchase Minecraft, it's now on 25% sale due to beta phase. So the current price is 14,95€.

10 million? Really?

Damn, don't know if I'm happier for its success or annoyed by how lazy and eager to bunk off Notch is in light of this.
