Some games are just destined to do extremely well when they roll out, and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition happens to be one of them. In fact, this puppy has just officially gone past the 10 million copies sold mark, at least according to the folks over at Microsoft. Xbox social media director Jeff Rubenstein also sent in his congratulatory message, saying, “Congrats to Mojang, 4J Studios, and Microsoft Studios, and a huge thank you to the 10 million of you who have built, explored, and fought through the night on Xbox 360.”
Not only that, there is more good news to follow up on this rather remarkable achievement, where loyal builders will finally get their due as there is a 50% discount on all skin and texture packs. Unfortunately, the timing of this massive sale would not be as what some would expect, since it will last only for a day. All skin and texture packs here would mean the exclusion of Mashup packs, and this particular sale will happen this coming Saturday, December 14th, where it includes Skin Pack 1, Skin Pack 2, Skin Pack 3, Skin Pack 4, Skin Pack 5, Battle & Beasts Skin Pack, Festive Skin Pack, Plastic Texture Pack, Battle & Beasts 2 Skin Pack, Natural Texture Pack, and Fantasy Texture Pack.
