Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition continues to go from strength-to-strength on XBLA it seems, with the game's creator Markus 'Notch' Persson today declaring on Twitter that the game has surpassed the 3 million sales mark since its launch in May.
"I got told Minecraft for XBLA passed three million sales today!" Persson exclaimed in a tweet. According to Gamespot, that figure translates to a staggering $60 million in sales, making it one of the most successful XBLA games of all time.
Shifting 400,000 copies in its first day on sale, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition went on to achieve 1 million sales in less than a week. A patch and a bunch of skins went live for the game recently too. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition is available for 1600 Microsoft Points.
