There is huge money in the world of video games if you actually know how to leverage your knowledge of games programming to churn out a cult hit, not to mention the pre-requisite of being in the right place at the right time, of course. For those who have been wondering just how well Minecraft 360 has been performing since it was released, here is a tweet from Markus Persson earlier this morning, where he said, “I got told Minecraft for XBLA passed three million sales today!” Whipping out our calculators, that would mean the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft has already generated $60 million in sales since it debuted in May. Not too bad after just a couple of months of being propagated, no? Minecraft 360 was developed by 4J Studios, where it managed to break the sales record on XBLA by moving 400,000 copies on its first day of sales alone.
