The lead producer of the upcoming “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition” has talked a little bit amount the sales of the previously-released “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.” According to a message from his personal Twitter page on Jan. 17, Roger Carpenter confirmed that the retail release of the Xbox 360 console port ended up being the ninth best selling video game in the United States last year, thanking fans for their support in the process.

#MinecraftXBLA (disc version) was the 9th best selling game in US in 2013! Thank you!!!

“Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition,” which was also produced by Roger Carpenter, came out as a retail disc on June 4, 2013. The same video game was previously a download-only title on the Xbox Live Marketplace when it initially launched on Microsoft’s current-generation console on May 9, 2012. The NPD sales tracker did not account for digital sales, meaning that the open-world sandbox game sold even more.

“Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition” was also the only game on the top ten best-selling software list to be released on only one platform. The rest of the titles came out on at least two platforms.

The success of the first console port should bode well for the forthcoming “Minecraft: Xbox One Edition.” An official release date has not yet been confirmed for the next-generation console version as the 4J Studios development team is currently working on patches for “Minecraft: PS3 Edition” and the aforesaid “Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition.”
