Publish date:

Mojang's hit sandbox game Minecraft has sold over 8m units, console developer 4J Studios has announced.

The game's Xbox team took to Twitter to reveal the latest milestone for what has become one of the three-headed sales monster of Minecraft on PC, Xbox 360, and mobile devices.

MCV reported yesterday that the 360 Edition was on top of the UK charts for the third week in a row. The question now appears to be: When will the Xbox 360 version outsell the PC version? (Which has sold over 11m copies last we checked.)

4J also revealed what's coming for title update 12. The world height has been doubled from 128 to 256, new items, recipe updates, difficulty mods, and Creative Mode features are all set to arrive with the next console patch.
