'Minecraft' for PC sells over 7 million copies

The PC version of "Minecraft" has sold over 7 million copies.

Minecraft for PC has sold over 7 million copies, according to Mojang business developer Daniel Kaplan.

"More than 7 million minecraft (pc) copies sold!" Kaplan tweeted today.

Last week GameSpot reported the Xbox 360 version is selling at roughly 17,000 copies per day, netting around $340,000 in revenue every 24 hours. The game broke the record for the fastest-selling Xbox Live game on its release day in May.

Mojang is on its way to doubling its profits this year. Its deck-building tactical role-playing game Scrolls is nearing the start of its closed alpha.
