Minecraft’s massive, and the Xbox 360 version apparently just as huge as the desktop versions.
Microsoft mouthpiece Major Nelson has updated his blog (he does this a bit, seemingly) that originally claimed that the game had “broken all previous Xbox LIVE Arcade digital sales records” with one with a staggering number.
As of today, after two days less than a week on sale, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has sold more than one million units globally. Anyone doubtful that digital downloads can sell big numbers need to just reflect on that for a minute.
Nelson also fires over some statistics – total online hours is 5.2 million, there’s been 4 million multiplayer sessions and 2.4 million multiplayer gaming hours.
He doesn’t state how many downloads the game has had, mind – the number of people who tried the demo could be bigger still.
