Minecraft on Xbox 360 Becomes Fastest-Selling Arcade Game Ever

Have you tried Minecraft for the Xbox 360 yet? If not, you might be missing out as Microsoft’s Larry Hyrb (a.k.a. Major Nelson), has just revealed that the Xbox LIVE Arcade adaptation of the hit PC game has now broken all previous Xbox LIVE Arcade digital sales records!

While there are no specific numbers given (at least, not yet), Nelson did comment that he saw over 400,000 people playing via the game’s leaderboards.

I’m guessing this is good news for Markus “Notch” Persson and the fine people over at 4J Studios and Mojang, no? Now Notch can build a fortress made out of money to protect his idea for his next game.

All kidding aside, congrats to everyone!
