In the past 24 hours alone, over 14,000 people have purchased the game. With over 12 million copies sold on the PC, it has surpassed some of the best-selling PC games of all time, such as Half-Life (!), Battlefield 2 and StarCraft. At the rate it's going, it's going to slam right into Half-Life 2 and Diablo II in the near future.

 

The only games after a smash-hit like Half-Life 2 or Diablo are the Sims games, with The Sims and The Sims 2 becoming Minecraft's next target. Minecraft is most likely going to end up as the best-selling PC game, of all time.
