4J Studios revealed today that “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” has now sold over six million copies, via Xbox Live Arcade, since the game’s release last May. This makes the Xbox 360 version of “Minecraft” a huge success for an XBLA title. The graphically simple, yet gameplay complex sandbox game has steadily remained on the top played games list for Xbox 360.
In addition to just releasing the game, “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” has received numerous title updates as well as four distinct skin packs which allow users to change their avatars in the game. At the end of April, more gamers will be able to play “Minecraft” on Xbox 360 due to the fact that the game is receiving a retail disc release next month. This will allow those without an internet connection required to download the game currently via Xbox Live to be able to pick up the popular title.
“Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” is now available to download over Xbox Live.
