According to twitter post today from Markus Persson(@notch), the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft 360 has reached three million in sales. “I got told Minecraft for XBLA passed three million sales today!’ announced Persson. The game launched back in May, when we reported that the game had also broke the single day sales record for XBLA.
The game was ported to the Xbox 360 by 4J Studios, and was originally created by Persson and his studio Mojang. The popular block game has been a worldwide sensation since originally launching on the PC, and there have been a number of similar “copycat” games since its release.
3 million in sales multiplied by the twenty dollars the game retailed for equals a cool $60,000,000 in sales. Some reports have even said the game was profitable within the first hour of launch. Impressive.
