Minecraft on 360 has (in a few months) outsold the best-selling God of War on PS2 OR PSP OR PS3 - LIFETIME. Which is hilarious in itself.

But mommy, i thought the 360 was a dudebro console where games like Skyrim, Mass Effect, Minecraft, Fable, Dance Central didn't sell... I thought that only shooters sold well on the 360, mommy!

Oh wait, i remember now - Call of Duty is the best-selling game on PS3 too, and shooters on PS3 outsell all of Sony's exclusives.

Minecraft is a universal title...everybody likes it. I know guys who play nothing but COD that have been going nuts on Minecraft 360.

It is a nice game to have light hearted fun with friends, everyone can appreciate it. Yes, the PC version has more features, but the essence is there on 360 and that is really all you need.

Honda's sell more often than Ferrari's, I fail to see your point.

So, crafting something and then building compared to completely destroying and obliterating mythological creatures. Everyone VS mature.

Still fail to see your point.

Lol No it didn't you fool.

But go on, keep comparing a downloadable multiplatform game that launched at 20$ to an exclusive that launched at $60.
Oh and Dance Central doesn't in fact sell. The second installment saw a pretty good drop in sales just like every othrr Kinect game released. Lol

Best acquisition MS made in a long long time. I knew it would do well but this is astounding.
