Trials Evolution, RedLynx‘s wonderfully infuriating sequel, broke records a few weeks ago. After a day, Mojang‘s build-em-up Minecraft looked set to beat that record. Microsoft has now confirmed Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition has eclipsed previous XBLA sales records, selling over a million copies in less than a week.

If that wasn’t impressive enough Microsoft also shared a few more stats, since release Minecraft players have spent over 5.2 million hours playing online. Equally impressive, four million multiplayer sessions have been played across 2.4 million hours. If you’ve yet to be bitten by the Minecraft bug and are wondering what all the fuss is about, then you can find out in our review.
