Microsoft has announced that Minecraft's Xbox Live Arcade version has sold over a million copies in the five days since its launch.
The indie sensation has sold over five million copies for PC, and last month Minecraft pocket edition broke a million downloads on mobile devices.
The game went live on May 9, and the next morning Minecraft creator Marcus 'Notch' Persson tweeted he had seen sales statistics showing the Xbox edition was "profitable in an hour".
Though Persson later admitted he was using the notoriously inaccurate leaderboard stats to estimate sales, those numbers did show 400,000 users within 24 hours.
Though those figures were unreliable, Microsoft confirmed the game had broken Trials Evolution's record of 100,000 copies in 24 hours to become the fastest selling Xbox Live Arcade game in history.
