    Minecraft XBLA crafts 3 million sales



    Minecraft for Xbox Live Arcade has now surpassed 3 million sales. The announcement comes via Twitter from Mojang's lord of the blocks, Markus "Notch" Persson, who tweeted this morning: "I got told Minecraft for XBLA passed three million sales today!"

    The $20 downloadable title launched on May 7 and sold a million units in five days, it then reached two million sales in early June. Minecraft for XBLA has also enjoyed significant support through updates, the latest (v 1.73) going live just last week.

    I'm not much of a fan of the game but that is impressive.

    It's not exclusive to Xbox, it's on PC too.

    These pointless but imposed restrictions to wield the word 'exclusive' as some kind of badge of honour are amusing.

    Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition can't be found on PC nor PS3 or Nintendo. By all means, post back when you have time!

    exactly. minecraft on the PC is an entirely different game. this is Minecraft 360. Not, PS3, Wii, etc... so therefore it IS a console exclusive. You can play the separate PC version on PC, not on the 360.

    It's pretty good for being on the 360 for sure. I've had to buy to copies of the game for two consoles lol.

    true... The fact is that this title is very successful and it was a smart move by Microsoft to bring this version to XBLA.

    And why exactly is it 'an entirely different game'?

    What console can you play Minecraft on? Xbox 360, Wii or PS3 or all of them?

    The game is exclusive to one of those consoles. Google for the answer.

    i think most of us understand exclusive to mean "on console".

    May I ask why people here get all stirred up by the term "exclusive"? We're talking consoles in the console forum so the term is appropriate, especially in terms of this particular title, since it is a special version of the game.

    With respect to this site, since roughly 95% of game related discussions center around console and handhelds, I wouldn't get too concerned about calling a game that is also available on the PC, an exclusive.

    It's all about context and we all know the meaning within the context of this site.
    I don't need no stinkin' signature!

    That's really impressive. I wouldn't think the averag xbox gamer(I see them as being mostly into action and fps based on game sale) would be into this. Ill prob be buying it when I get my xbox this week.
    I have twitter to https://twitter.com/GamerYuichi , Also started youtube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMu7yRGCz8QrTyxaNVR3Tqw I don't always twitch, but when I can you can find my noobness http://www.twitch.tv/yuichimccry,

    I know that this is getting a bit off topic and for that I apologize, but I respectfully disagree. Based on my observations on this site, it seems to bother some when the term "exclusive" is used properly.

    It was a view I was sharing in response to your first post. Exclusive doesnt effect me at all but from my understanding exclusive would mean it be available to one entity.

    I have to agree. It's pretty common in this section.
