Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” sales have been compared to “Battlefield 4,” “Grand Theft Auto 5” and other titles. According to a report by Gamer Headlines on Feb. 10, the console port of “Minecraft” managed to stay in the top ten of the U.K. Game Chart despite several new releases along with competing against multiplatform titles.

“Fable Anniversary” debuted as the third best-selling game on the chart last week. “Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition,” which took the top spot the week before, dropped to the fourth position. “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” ended up being the eight best-selling title, trailing big-budgeted games such as “Battlefield 4” and “Grand Theft Auto 5.”

However, the retail disc for the Xbox 360 version of “Minecraft” has been on the market far longer than the other software products on the same chart.

  1. FIFA 14
  2. Call of Duty: Ghosts
  3. Fable Anniversary
  4. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
  5. LEGO Marvel Superheroes
  6. GTA 5
  7. Battlefield 4
  8. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition
  9. Killzone: Shadow Fall
  10. Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag

The U.K. Game Chart does not account for the digital sales for “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition,” which makes up a significant portion of the overall sell-through rate. Mojang, the studio that created the main game, recently disclosed that the Xbox 360 version has sold more than 11 million units worldwide so far when combining both digital and software sales.

Based on the chart, it does not appear that “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” will stop selling anytime in the near future. The same video game came out for the PS3 late last year. “Minecraft: PS4 Edition,” “Minecraft: Vita Edition” and “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” are also launching sometime later in 2014.
