Last year was very good for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, and original Minecraft developer Mojang is boasting that the game has sold five million copies.

Daniel Kaplan, Mojang's business developer, celebrated the milestone with a tweet: "On the last day of 2012, Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition hit 5 million copies sold! Crazy! Amazing! Great way to end the year :) Thanks!"

The 360 Edition of the game (click for Jeff Cork's review), developed by 4J studios, came out in May.
