Good thing those extremely cheap Minecraft clones couldn't hinder its sales.
i want it for vita. minecraft on the go, but console level quality
This game falsely advertises local multiplayer. warning: this games multiplayer is for hd settings only. wish i would've known before wasting 20 dollars on it. might as well play a cheaper clone that allows multiplayer no matter tv/financial situation. sadly though minecraft is the only one with the freaks at night.
yay i can't wait to try this game out
Personally, I just build something with my legos if I want Minecraft looking stuff.
Yep I'm one of those 400,000 and I am loving it.
Not a surprise at all to me, really.
I want to get it but I don't think any of my friends have/are getting it. So for me its like, why should I buy it on the 360 over the PC but at the same time I would be able to enjoy the game better on my 360 cause its just a more comfortable environment for me.
Frankly, this game at that price? Doesn't deserve it.
It's official: Minecraft is sucsesful EVERYWHERE.
I can has a has has, please?
nice! dont play Minecraft, but respect it for what it did for the game industry.
Just now bought it half an hour ago!
This doesn't surprise me at all. Minecraft has a HUGE PC following so I knew Minecraft for the Xbox 360 would sell well.
It really is amazing. I have it on PC but I prefer this one even though there is less to do. You can do split screen and online is much easier then on pc.
