    Minecraft Xbox 360 sells over 6 million copies.......

    The studio revealed the figure via a jubilant tweet, containing both multiple explanation points and enthusiastic capitalisation.

    The news follows Mojang's January announcement that the XBLA incarnation of the block-based world builder outsold its PC-based older brother last year, as well as the more recent news that the XBLA version is due to sold on disc in certain territories. All in all, not bad for a game that was released in May of last year.

    Pretty damn solid sales. Notch would have never beleived his game would sell so much and appeal most to those between the ages of 8 and 12.

    I'll pick up the retail release

    Wow, and for an arcade game that is exclusive to xbox, 6 million sold is quite astounding.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    I wonder if this is the best selling digital game title on a console, ever.

    It has to be, nothing else has ever gotten this much mass appeal, and we've only had digital consoles for a few years so I think its safe to say
