Minecraft sales total 9.2 million

The collective sales of Notch's game are almost to 10 million

According to Mojang founder Markus Persson and business developer Daniel Kaplan, the indie hit Minecraft has sold 9.2 million units across all platforms.

"Minecraft has now sold six million copies. That's the original PC version only, and doesn't count Android, iOS or XBLA sales," said Persson in a set of tweets.

Kaplan confirmed the total sales when asked by Persson.

"Counting all formats, we should be at around nine million copies sold, I'd guess?" asked Persson.

"Yeah a little bit more. Maybe 9.2," Kaplan replied.

Minecraft's recent release for Xbox 360 set an Xbox Live sales record and sold 1 million units in under a week.
