Did any of us really expect this game not to sell a ridiculous amount? The insanely popular PC title is still played religiously to this day and bringing it to the Xbox 360 was a great choice if you ask me. Though I can't help but weep for the PS3 owners who may never get it on their console.
This was the final title in Microsoft's "Arcade NEXT" program, and this is easily one of the best ways to end it. In just a week, the game sold over 1 million units and has racked up 5.2 million hours spent mining, 4 million sessions played, and clocked in 2.4 million hours played.
Minecraft is one of the most addicting games of our time and PC players have created some mind-blowing and truly breathtaking worlds, landscapes, and even popular characters. Of course, there are the use of mods on the PC which lend a gigantic help to these structures, hopefully the Xbox 360 version will get something along those lines.
