ah, but he said "more then". 2 million would still be "more then".Cpt. Red said:It wasn't a comment on how much he had in his account but rather at this part:Serris said:but he clears out his paypal every week, that explains itCpt. Red said:"600592 registered users, of which 133537 (22.23%) have bought the game." And the price have been ?9.95 so that's a total of ?1328693.15... A bit more then 750k...
OT: and just before this article, I wrote this review here on the escapist looking at why minecraft sold as well as it did:
Andy Chalk said:One obvious question emerges from Persson's ongoing troubles with PayPal: How the hell does one guy rack up more than three quarters of a million dollars off a single indie game? My first thought was that it had to be a typo, but apparently MineCraft is just a really good game.
but, every copy of minecraft sells for 10 euro. Persson only gets about half of that due to outlandish swedish taxes and paypal fees. right now 136589 have bought the game, so that's about 682945 euros (well, it's not exactly half that gets lost, and some people may have bought the game while i'm typing this.), but if you convert that to dollar that makes 866,022.06 USD.
so yes, it's a bit more then that, but that is what he said
