The mind-boggling stats were revealed in a blog post on developer Mojang's website (spotted by Eurogamer) yesterday evening. It was a very good Christmas for the developer too, with 289,939 gamers grabbing Minecraft Pocket Edition on Christmas Day alone, adding to a total of 706,419 copies for the entire Christmas week.
Across all platforms, 2012 saw the Mojang cash-registers chime to the tune of 15,079,940 purchases. Blimey!
