Minecraft Now Best Selling Xbox Live Arcade Title Ever

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Just one month after the release of Minecraft for the Xbox 360, the game has already sold more than two million copies, making it the best selling Xbox Live Arcade version game of all time.

According to VGChartz, the announcement came via tweet from Minecraft creator, Markus Persson saying, “Best selling XBLA game ever, in less than a month.”

The hit indie game is priced at $20, which is a bit higher than most XBLA titles. Despite the higher price, Minecraft surpassed Castle Crasher, a beat ’em up console video game independently developed in 2008 by The Behemoth and published by Microsoft Game Studios.
