That's right, the PC version of Minecraft has surpassed 10 million sales! Minecraft as a game continues to have a phenomenal level of success, with humble beginnings in the hands of Mojang founding member Markus "Notch" Persson, and growing over a period of years into one of the most successful indie game titles in gaming history, spanning PC, console, and handheld systems in record numbers. In addition, the recent changes to Minecraft in 1.5 - and future changes planned the game, including Mod API support, more adventure map options, and all sorts of customization options - Mojang continues to push the game to new heights, even as they get involved in the community, with everything from direct-feedback bug fixing to real-life renewal projects. With the recent TU9 update, MCX360 is hot on the PC version's heels, even as it introduces special goodies unique to XBLA gamers.

As promised by Jeb, a secret was revealed about 1.6, a feature many were looking forward to! What feature? Well...

I used to check damn near hourly. I had a bot that told me whenever Mojang said stuff. updating this profile happened pretty much instantly before.

RE the update, far too late imo. they've had saddles in for nearly 1 1/2 years. only now they add a controllable mount?
