Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition passes 8 million copies sold
Mojang's sandbox phenomenon brings home the bacon. Part thanks to Huge GameSeek Sales :)
Minecraft's console developer 4J Studios has announced that Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has now sold over 8 million units.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has now sold over 8 MILLION copies !!! #MinecraftXBLA— 4J Studios (@4JStudios) August 9, 2013
This isn't Minecraft's first big success, however. The original PC version of the game reached 8 million copies a while ago, and currently sits pretty on a heap of over 11m budding crafters. The mobile release for this game has also been well received, showing that great numbers of people want to play Minecraft on all of their devices.
Originally only available on Xbox Live Arcade for download, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has taken the console world by storm and currently has the #1 spot in the UK charts (for the third week in a row).
4J and Mojang are continuing to update and improve Minecraft across all platforms, and we'll be interested to see if the 360 version of the game can surpass the PC version in sales.
