Written by David Stellmack

Has now reached 3.6 million sold

Minecraft continues to blaze a trail on Xbox 360 that perhaps is more than a bit unexpected. The latest news is that Minecraft for the Xbox 360 has sold 3.6 million copies. The news comes via the Twitter feed of Mojang business developer, Daniel Kaplen, who commented that the news was surprising.

Minecraft for the Xbox 360 became profitable within the first hour of release, according to Markus “Notch” Persson, and while it has sold over seven million copies on the PC, the Xbox 360 version continues to set new records and lead sales in the Xbox Live Arcade.

As for the future of Minecraft on the Xbox 360, the 1.8.2 Update is still “many weeks away,” according to the latest news from the Tyler Lukasik from 4J Studios who did the 360 conversion of Minecraft in conjunction with Mojang.
