Minecraft Breaks 20 Million Registered

Minecraft’s success story continues as the addictive title amasses more than 20 million registered users.

Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson tweeted that the block building sandbox game has reached a new milestone and now boasts more than 20 million registered users. In a Twitter post, Notch announced the new notch in his belt by stating:

Minecraft now has 20 million registered users. At 70 kg each, that's 25% of the weight of the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Notch also points out that out of those 20 million, 23.23% actually bought the game, leading to some interesting Notch-based extrapolation.

23.23% also bought the game. Extrapolating, we find that 76.77% of the internet will register for things they don't want.

According to Notch, 20 million people can also produce enough energy to power a Flux Capacitor. Who knew? Let’s just try to keep it less than 88 mph to avoid any temporal paradoxes.
