'Terraria' outsells 'Minecraft' in first week on Xbox LIVE

Gamasutra:

'Side-scrolling multiplayer RPG Terraria has sold more than 125,000 copies on Xbox 360 in its first week on sale -- the first title to outsell Minecraft's weekly sales in quite a while.' (Minecraft, Terraria, Xbox 360)

Wow, that's impressive... It's good though too, Terraria is a fantastic game. It deserves all the sales it can get. :]

It's a game that is more suited for consoles anyway, IMO. I have it on PC already, but I'll probably end up getting it for either my PS3 or my Vita when it comes out for Vita this summer. When I'm on PC, I'll play Minecraft.

cool to see the hate on terraria has stopped. PC gamers were MAD this was coming to consoles.

it's really fun if you have friends to play with.

It's a great game. I had never played it until a couple of months ago on the PC and it definitely got me hooked. I built some underground home which I really liked.

Got it on day one for the 360. My brother and my sister enjoy playing it as well.

I've also got Minecraft. I played the Beta for quite a bit, but the 360 was a hell of a lot better due to being able to play couch co-op. Again, my brother and sister enjoyed playing it. My younger sister still plays MC now, she sometimes joins us in Terraria, she doesn't really enjoy the fighting part of it and that's the same in MC. She just enjoys building whatever comes to her mind.

I've actually stopped playing MC, I guess I'm just not as creative as a lot of other people, and most likely patient enough to spend the time to build amazing structures.

Well done to Re-Logic, it would be nice to see regular updates and added content, but I don't think we will see that happening. Don't think it will surpass MC though.

I love them both. They aren't as directly comparable as people make them out to be imo. Sure they have similarities but I feel like Minecraft is more for the creativeness with building and Terraria is about the adventuring and progressing. I was quite surprised at the differences it's almost an apples and oranges kind of thing. I have a hard time imagining playing this without a mouse just like Minecraft but I'm happy it's console release was also a success.
