The lights are on
The Xbox 360 port of Mojang's Minecraft has been a big hit for the console, selling more than a million copies in less than a week. As it turns out, the folks who downloaded the game actually played it, too.
According to the most recent chart of Xbox Live activity, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has racked up a substantial number of unique users. How many? Well, Microsoft isn't spilling that info.

That's good I suppose. I've yet too download it, but I will soon.
I love minecraft! I'm building my castle in the mountains right now. There's just so much freedom and creativity to this game.
Wow, that makes me happy to see some other games getting some good attention. Nice to see Halo 3 up there, too!
Way to hang in there RDR!!!

Congrats... I guess?
Haha, nice!! Great job Minecraft!

I knew this game would sell well on console especially when my friend a hardcore cod and military shooter fan saw me playing this game and when i explained the concept to him he seemed eager to try but didn't like the idea of playing on PC but couldn't wait for the xbox edition i think that goes to show that anyone who would give this game a chance can really see how good it is and the xbox version i my opinion opened the door to a new audience
