Minecraft – Pocket Edition in One Million Virtual Pockets

The Apple iOS and Android versions of Minecraft: Pocket Edition have sold more than one million copies, according to a tweet from Mojang developer Daniel Kaplan. The mobile version of the popular world-building game debuted exclusively on Soy's Xperia, but was released on all Android platforms, and later on iOS.

"Minecraft – Pocket Edition has now sold more than 1 million copies. Thanks all for the support and I hope you will like the coming updates," tweeted Kaplan.

The game is pretty pricey at $6.99, but a number of cheap sales helped boost the game earlier in its release cycle.

And on a semi-related note, Mojang founder and Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson will be honored with the Special Award at this month's British Academy Video Games Awards, BAFTA announced today. Persson will be given with the award during the BAFTA award ceremony later this month.
