Minecraft passes 300 million copies sold

Minecraft is, with some margin, the world’s most sold game as it has passed 300 million copies. Second place is held by GTA V with 185 million copies sold.

This is an example of a game that makes Stockholm a good place to build and invest in games. In particular I believe the success of Minecraft and Toca Boca, and before that Stardoll, make it more likely that the next 100 million user kids game or world will be built in Stockholm.

  1. Wow! Remember the early days when they had a simple website with a counter for each download / purchase and how quickly the counter was ticking. Not sure if it cost $10 or $30…
