Minecraft: Pocket Edition has topped 30 million downloads, as the paid premium game reaches an impressive milestone. The mobile version of the game is available on Google Android, Apple iOS, Microsoft Windows Phone and Amazon Kindle Fire for $7.




To help celebrate the milestone, Minecraft fans are welcome to visit this reddit thread and submit questions, which will be answered during a live question and answer session later this week.


Also, more than one million desktop gamers played Minecraft simultaneously, Mojang noted, with the milestone reached at a non-peak time.


Microsoft's decision to purchase Minecraft developer Mojang for $2.5 billion in September has proven to be a great idea - and initial concern of how Microsoft would control the franchise have clearly subsided.
