Minecraft 360 edition averaging 50,000 sales a week

It looks as if the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft has a good chance of running down its PC predecessor in terms of sales.

Gamasutra reports the XBLA version is still selling between 40,000 and 60,000 copies a week just over half a year from launch. As of the end of November, total sales for the platform stood at 4.47m.

That figure is more than halfway to the PC/Mac counterpart, which was over 8m units sold when we heard last month.

Minecraft XBLA continues to compete with AAA shooters Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and Halo 4 in the weekly activity charts as well.

To say, at the time, that the PC indie hit would do ‘very well’ on Microsoft’s platform wouldn’t be too bold of a prediction, but who would have thought the console version might reach and perhaps blow by what the game’s first platform had already famously amassed?
