Minecraft: Xbox Edition Notches Up Over 1 Million Sales

Please forgive the pun. We had to. It was fundamentally necessary.

Anyway, Minecraft: Xbox Edition has gone and broken the million-sales barrier in less than a week, which will probably surprise no-one. Still, applause all round.

It also nabbed the fastest selling XBLA game award too, beating Trials Evolution, which launched earlier this month.

Xbox 360 players have already clocked in over 5.2 million hours of gameplay, four million multiplayer sessions, and 2.4 million multiplayer gaming hours, according to Microsoft's Major Nelson.

The PC version is rocking over 25 million registered users, though, a number of whom signed up since the game's original alpha, so there's still some way to go before it can match the 5.3 million sales PC sales thus far.
