The meteoric rise of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has become the stuff of legend. The PC version was nothing short of a phenomenon, but I’m not sure anyone expected the game to sell five million copies in its first seven months of availability. It took a bit longer to tally their next million, but the team at 4J Studios is happy to announce that Minecraft’s Xbox 360 edition has now sold six million copies:

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will get a chance to sell even more copies when the disc version of the game is released to stores on April 30.
