The Minecraft success continues as the Xbox 360 version of the game has passed the 12 million mark. This is up 50 percent from last August when the game reached eight million sold. This would make it the seventh best selling Xbox 360 game of all-time according to VGChartz.
"I remember when we started talking about sales numbers that we would be super happy to sell 1 million copies," said Mojang's Daniel Kaplan about the success of the game. "That would have put us on par with BF1943 and Castle Crashers, which both are awesome games, so that was something to aim for. We never even dreamed of selling 12 million!"
