Minecraft tops 3 million sales on XBLA

Indie smash hit passes another significant milestone

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has surpassed three million sales, according to franchise creator Markus 'Notch' Persson.


"I got told Minecraft for XBLA passed three million sales today!" he shared on Twitter.

It's another impressive milestone smashed by console version of the title, which broke previous XBLA sales records by selling more than any other title in the first 24 hours of availability on the digital platform. It went on to sell over a million copies in less than a week.

Here's what we said in our Minecraft: Xbox 360 review: "Whether you're mining, crafting, building, or fighting - either alone, or with friends - there's nothing quite like Minecraft. An accomplished, streamlined port that's a perfect fit for Xbox 360." We gave it an impressive 9.0.
