The phenomenon which is Minecraft has taken the Xbox by storm. By the end of March 2013, IGN reported that sales had passed 6,000,000 copies. It’s the fastest selling Xbox Live game of all time, the biggest selling Xbox Live game of all time and the Xbox version became profitable less than 24 hours after it launched. It also topped the first ever UK Xbox Live Arcade Top Ten.
However, not every Xbox player downloads games from the Internet. Some players like to keep it real. Or at least physical. So on June 28th, the Xbox version of Minecraft (developed by 4J Studios in Dundee/East Linton) will hit retail.
SO, if you’ve been holding out and refusing to buy one of these new-fangled ‘downloads’, now there is no reason. NO reason in this, or any other world, not to buy Minecraft for your Xbox. It’s fun. It’s creative. It features many scary monsters. You can build epicly, awesomely, inspirational stuff of every kind.
On a shiny disk. In a box.
