Notch confirms strong retail performance for Minecraft Xbox 360

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.

The disc version landed at US retail earlier this month, with the XBLA version already banking 6m sales as of March of this year.

Microsoft confirmed during its E3 press conference that Minecraft will be part of its line-up of titles for the Xbox One.
