Oh how we love when studios decide to release information about just how successful their games are, don’t we? In the case of Minecraft, though, it is easy to turn away and enjoy it. Minecraft is one of those games that seems to transcend the normal “gamer” boundaries and appeal to just about everyone. That is why this latest number released about Minecraft isn’t all that shocking, especially on the Xbox 360 Edition.
Since its launch last year, Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has helped to dominate Xbox Live as one of the most-played games without fail. Tons and tons of gamers have purchased Minecraft on the Xbox 360 and it doesn’t look like it will slow down any time soon. So the cool number released today is that players have logged over one billion hours on the Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft. Now if only 4J Studios could fix that silly lighting bug that they introduced and we all could get back to mining.
