3 Million Users and 936K sales later...

Minecraft today hit the 3 million users mark; confirmed by the man himself -- Notch. This, no doubt, says one thing about Minecraft: it's growing. With thousands of new users coming in every day (and purchasing it), it's going to hit a mark. A mark which would lead to results none other than an extraordinary feat for such a one-man-project now led by a company. All in a years or so time. People often associate big numbers with companies. Such as Halo 2's massive sales, World of Warcraft's colloasal member base. But Minecraft? Now has 3 million members and almost one million sales. While that's essentially true, Minecraft is a good example of how, for the most part, a one-man-game. But with a growing crowd comes some growing problems.

The Minecraft community has gotten so hectic that Notch disabled the comments on his blog. Around late October, a group of Minecraft fans decided to DDoS the Minecraft site in order to protest for more updates. And as of late, Notch's massive following has been noted to take down a few sites that Notch tweets about. However, it's all good and fun when no one gets hurt right? The people of Minecraft think Notch can do everything. Notch do this and that is probably all he hears when he goes to an open area. Notch has become somewhat of an internet celebrity but at what cost? All I know Minecraft is in a new year and new beginnings. What do you think Minecraft's next move should be?
