Mojang and 4J Studios' recently-released Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has broken a digital sales record on the Xbox 360, as its day-one sales have outpaced those of every other game on Xbox Live Arcade.
Microsoft did not provide exact figures, but this news comes just weeks after RedLynx's arcade stunt racer Trials Evolutionbroke that same record by selling more than 100,000 copies within a day of its launch.
Even without publicly-available sales data, the game appears to have attracted an extremely large player base. The game released only yesterday, and its online leaderboards have accrued at least 459,000 unique player entries as of this writing.
Adding a bit of extra context, Minecraft creator and Mojang founder Markus 'Notch' Persson confirmed on Twitter that the Xbox 360 version of the game was "profitable in an hour."
