Minecraft Xbox 360 sales reach 4.48 million

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition sold between 40,000 and 60,000 copies per week during the period of October 29-November 19, according to data from Mojang Studios provided to Gamasutra. Sales of that caliber mean the game generated between $800,000 and $1.2 million every week during the time. Total sales for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition as of November 19 reached 4,476,904.

This is nothing unexpected though, since the game became profitable in just one hour after releasing, selling more than 400,000 copies during its first 24 hours on sale, and breaking all previous Xbox Live arcade digital sales records. Reaching1 million in sales in just five days, Minecraft dethroned Call of Duty from the top of the Xbox Live activity chart for one week in October.

Though 40,000-60,000 copies sold per week may sound like an impressive figure, Minecraft: Xbox Edition's sales are actually slowing down. In August, the game was selling at a rate of 17,000 copies per day, driving revenue of $340,000 every 24 hours.

By comparison, the PC and Mac version of Minecraft have sold 8.2 million units.

Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition was developed by 4J Studios, the Scotland-based shop that built Xbox Live Arcade titles Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie, and Banjo-Tooie. It retails for $20.
