The retail version of Minecraft was the best-selling Xbox 360 game in its launch window, according to the game’s creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson.

VG247 reports Notch took to twitter to boast on the indie mega-hit’s hot start at retail for Microsoft’s console.

They’re telling me it’s currently the fastest selling console game in the US,” Notch said.
