I've built this huge island full of stuff and I don't really have anything else to alter or add. But, the Natural Texture Pack is really nice, so I might just get it and see if it changes my view on what else to add.

Though I'm not a fan of Minecraft, I understant its success. The only question I'm wondering is : When is this going to stop ? (I feel like Minecraft keeps selling as much as if it was a brand new game but it's our for a year and a half on XBOX 360...I'd like to know how the sales manage to be this stable (and this high)).

Is this actually a worthwhile game ? Will I gain much from it after completing all of the achievements ?

@6, I haven't looked into many, but the Natural Texture Pack gives it a more 'realistic' feel, in a way? Paintings are a lot more vivid, there's a lot more fluid detail in the wood, glass, blocks, etc. At the same time, though, it can change up some of the main blocks and not make them look as natural, like the sandstone. It doesn't blend that well.

@6. The Natural Pack is my favourite so far. Going to get the Fantasy pack as I liked the trial. As for the 50% off, I will get the ones I don't already have. Super cheap goodness.

This was nice of 4J to cut prices. Good thing I didn't buy anything recently, since I can just get it tomorrow. This is one of the only few games left I can play on my Xbox ever since my HDD got corrupted by GTAV :(

I wonder if this sale is on right now for non US countries. Not that the packs re expensive, its $1.30 for the texture packs right now, wonder if thats with the discount. I'll wait till night to buy them.

10 million is pretty damn successful. Well done to them.

I might pick it up when it hits DotW but tbh I don't really get the hype for the game. If I got skins, I'd get Mass Effect skins. I don't think they are on sale.

I've been meaning to pick this up. But I can't justify the $20 price tag. Too bad they didn't extend the savings to the game itself. Would've made sense.

I put well over 1000 hours into Minecraft on 360. I remember going to work and thinking about what I was gonna build for 8 hours straight, then coming home and building it. I eventually got burnt out on the game, but I still load it up to explore what I built from time and time.

I can't wait for Project Spark so I can experience that again, but on a much bigger scale.

Wow compared to PC's 13million sales this is really impressive. I wonder if it will do this well on PS3 and next gen.

@12. You will like the two I mentioned, and they are a higher definition than the others and look far better. I am torn between which is my favourite. Just a shame my gold sub has run out, as I would like to play with other people. Gonna have to sort that out soon.

@5 There will be no updates until the PS3 and then XBO/PS4 versions are releasd. Maybe Vita too. At that point, upsates may resume.

@27 Thank you! No loyalty from 4J what so ever. The X1 version was even announced first back at E3 and let's not forgot the 360 version hasn't had an update (not including bug fixes)in 4 months. Funny how now they've earned their millions from us they don't seem to care.

They're working on releasing the PS3 version first, then the other 2 platforms. After those are released, they'll resume updates. Have some patience.

They didn't "somehow" get more achievements, they had no choice to add them because the game sucks if you don't pay to win. It's an insanely massive grind just to be able to survive for more than a few seconds on there anymore. Also, with the new achievement rules, arcade games can keep updating and adding achievements without charging for DLC packs.
