Minecraft XBLA edition has sold over 5 Million units

So it seems people like to build things on the Xbox 360.  The 8bit world known as Minecraft has just reached a new milestone selling over 5 Million digital copies on the XBLA since May 2012.

That’s huge considering the title was available for some time before it’s release on the Xbox 360 console.  Lifetime sales of the title are now approaching 20 Million.  Mojang also posted another impressive number.  Minecraft sold close to 500,000 copies on Christmas Eve alone.
