Minecraft Sells 4 Million Units Before Leaving Beta

Maximum PC Staff

So there's this little game launching today. Modern Fair Tycoon or somesuch. As it's literally impossible for you to not know, it's backed by a $327 quadrillion marketing campaign and will be purchased by everyone on earth. Twice. That in mind, seeing a previously unknown indie that's entirely bereft of explosions or Hans Zimmer or explosions achieve a similarly nuclear level of success is pretty damn inspiring. In response to the milestone, Notch merely tweeted “4milyay.” Meanwhile, Minecraft, er, actually launches next week. So hats off to Notch for that. Seriously, remove your hat. His is probably cooler than yours, so you're only embarrassing yourself.
