Minecraft Marketplace Creators Sell Over $1M USD in User-Made Content

The Minecraft Marketplace – where approved creators can sell their own content – appears to be doing well. Since the system’s launch in autumn, over $1M USD has been generated from sales of custom textures packs, character skins, and adventures.

Only nine creators were approved at the system’s launch. Since then, developer Mojang has approved three more partners.

Players can make purchases using a premium currency called Minecraft Coins. Creators are also given the freedom to set their prices. As Gamasutra points out, the store takes a 30-percent cut from each purchase, with creators seeing the “majority” after that.

They get the majority of whats left after MS' s cut? Who gets the minority?

I'm not saying MS shouldn't get their slice but that seems oddly worded.

Seems like they did this a lot cleaner than Bethesda lol. Looks better for the creators too. I still dislike the double currency crap they pull though.

Good for content makers but i think they need to get more of the money.
