Minecraft Is The Third Most Played Xbox Live Title

Last week, we published an article about Minecraft being the fastest selling Xbox Live Arcade title ever. Considering the monster sales, we knew this game would be big, but who would have guessed this big?

According to Major Nelson, Minecraft was the third most played game on Xbox Live the past week. To put that into perspective, it’s the most played non-CoD game online. More people played Minecraft than Halo, Gears of War and Skyrim. Insane.
