Since it’s release in May, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has sailed past numerous sales records. Xbox Live Arcade users scooped up two million, then three million, and finally four million copies of pixelated favorite. What comes next? Why, five million, of course.
Daniel Kaplan, Mojang’s Business Developer, has revealed that on December 31, the Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft surpassed five million copies sold:
