During a Mojang developers panel at MineCon, the folks behind the Minecraft phenomenon dropped a few interesting figures for the game. The full list is below the break, but we’ll give you a hint: they’re rather large.

Per GameFront who was at the developer panel, Minecraft has:

  • 241,920,000 logins per month.
  • 1,000 logins per hour.
  • 4,000 logins per second after 1.0 launch.
  • 2,000,000,000 files download by the launcher.
  • 11,000 skin downloads (in game) per second.

Visiting the game’s official website, we found that as of this post (and the counter grows by the second), the game has 16,692,789 registered users, with 4,113,807 (24.64%) having purchased the game, and in the last 24 hours, 81,359 people have registered, and 11,750 people bought the game.

We told you they were large numbers.
