Let it never be said that a game that can be taken as a virtual Lego building experience can’t take the world by storm regardless of platform. Ever since being released in the middle of the year, Minecraft on the XBLA has been selling incredibly well, so well in fact that 4J Studios has revealed that they have sold 5 million virtual copies of the title by the time 2012 ended.

It may also help that on Christmas Day Minecraft XBLA was downloaded by 453,000 new players, which certainly helped push it towards that goal. 4J Studios is still currently working on patches for the title which not only fix various bugs but also add new content and it seems that they will be doing so for the foreseeable future.
