And you thought Trials Evolution was a big seller on the Xbox Live Arcade? Enter Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, which having broken Trials Evo's record for day-one sales, has now gone on to break the 1 million sales milestone, in less than one week of being on sale, breaking all previous XBLA digital sales records.
As well as racking up more than 1,000,000 sales globally, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has also accumulated 5.2 million hours of online gameplay among the community, with 4 million multiplayer sessions equating to a total of 2.4 million hours of multiplayer gaming.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition released on May 9th for 1600 Microsoft Points, and no doubt the game's creator, Markus 'Notch' Persson is a very happy man right now. You can add Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition to your download queue here if you're not amongst the 1 million-odd who already have.
