Minecraft Already Has Over 500,000 Ratings On Xbox 360

Ridiculous figures.

Minecraft 360 Edition is going to be huge.

In just a few hours, the game has already received 130,000 ratings on the British Xbox.com site and well over 400,000 on the US version.

In comparison, Fez has around 2,500 on the UK site, and Trials 15,000.

You can vote without downloading a game, mind, so these don’t automatically translate into sales, but there’s clearly massive interest in Minecraft on console.

      Some time ago I remember Notch tweeting about Minecraft X360, saying something like “I’m not allowed to talk about the deal so here is a picture of a sheep”. Must assume it’s timed exclusive, I say give it 6-8 months and it’ll be on PSN.

    Aye why no PSN release? It’s not like Minecraft is exclusive.
    Then again they probably will get round to doing it for $$$

      Its not because of the $$$ its simply Microsofts policy on how games wills get approved on Xbox Live Arcade if I remember correctly.

      The Xbox 360 version is made by Microsoft.

    also is it just me or do they say it only has 2 player online co-op? but then gloss over it with the 4 player split screen to make it into 8 players. That would be a real downer if its only 2 players online for the console version.

      It’s 8 player online. You can do 4 player splitscreen online too.

        you can have up to 8 players, in any combination from 1 player each on 8 machines to four players each on two machines.

    “You can vote without downloading a game, mind” – What’s the use then?

      Maybe you played the game on your friends 360 and want to rate it without buying it yourself?

    Praying this comes to PSN and when it does, hopefully it will be the full release too.

    Ah, that makes more sense.

    The Nicki Minaj of games! People keep saying she’s hot but she’s not pretty.
    Same can be applied to Minecraft.
