Minecraft - Pocket Edition sells over 5 million units; franchise now at 17.5 million
Minecraft is widely considered to be one of the most popular games around right now, and it's showing no signs of stopping or even slowing down. According to Mojang's Johan Bernhardsson, Minecraft - Pocket Edition has just sold somewhere around it's five-millionth unit. All told, he estimates that the franchise has, across all units, sold "at least" 17.5 million copies.
Minecraft - Pocket Edition isn't exactly a full-featured entry in the series. Due to the limitations of the platform, it's only natural that there are a few things missing. Still, at its core, it's Minecraft. Apparently, Mojang currently has online multiplayer in the works for the title.
As for me, I'm more excited about the game's impending launch on Raspberry Pi.
