Minecraft on XBLA Surpasses 3 Million Sales
Early this morning, Markus “Notch” Persson made this announcement on Twitter:
I got told Minecraft for XBLA passed three million sales today!

Clearly this is a pretty big deal—the kids love Minecraft, don’t they? It’s an evergreen. In fact, our post on the Xbox edition’s update has 62 comments and counting—and that one was written way back in May. Why would people still be commenting on a story that’s two months old? BECAUSE IT’S MINECRAFT AND THEY LOVE IT.
It’s also important to note that the Xbox edition of Minecraft has been hitting milestones pretty regularly since its initial release back in May, crossing the one million mark after only a few days, and the two million mark in June. Is it safe to say that it’ll hit four million in August? Or should we extend the forecast to August, just to be on the safe side?
Also, confession time….
…I’ve never played Minecraft.
