By itself, that’s pretty impressive. But according to XBLA Fans, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has become the bestselling XBLA game of all time. According to their quick and dirty math, this new total pushes Minecraft past Castle Crashers, which has sold 2.9 million copies over a period of four years.
Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition did it in two months, almost to the day.
