XBLA is on fire as of late. Trials breaking records, now this.

It's good to be a gamer.

This is coming off the old record which Trials just broke. This is fantastic news. I am really enjoying this game, congrats to everyone involved.

Good to hear. The game is great for what it's doing on the 360.

Proud to be a PC ($13) and 360 ($15) owner of Minecraft. Just under $30 for such amazing experiences? Incredible value if you ask me.

It really has been a good year for XBLA though. Fez, Alan Wake's American Nightmare, and Minecraft: 360 Edition have all be great experiences!

Edit: I was deceived. The above weren't good experiences at all. I'm sorry N4G x( LOL
