Minecraft 360 Achieves First UK Number One

033 - 4J - Minecraft360Minecraft’s blocky, retro juggernaut of unstoppable awesome continues to thunder down the tracks of destiny.

A rather impressive 74% week-on-week jump in sales has pushed Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition to the number one slot on the GfK ChartTrack ALL FORMATS Top 40 Chart in the UK.

That’s the new chart covering all of the games consoles, so includes multi-platform games and franchises such as FIFA 13, Far Cry 3 and Assassin’s Creed III.  So Minecraft’s single platform Xbox 360 version has outstripped, well, everyone, to claim the number one position.

Congratulations to Notch, Mojang and of course the team at 4J Studios on yet another fabulous milestone…
