Minecraft is Huge

Spotted in Joystiq:

The Xbox Live Arcade version of Minecraft is selling at a good clip, shifting between 40,000 and 60,000 copies a week - it's just below Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 in the weekly Xbox Live activity charts. As of November's end, total XBLA sales are at 4,476,904.

Think about that - Mojang is still a small shop, and the amount of money that has been spent on Minecraft development is tiny compared to any of the other titles mentioned above. There's a lesson in there somewhere for the AAA development shops, but I rather suspect that they'll miss it.
