Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has now sold over seven million copies, Scottish developer 4J Studios has announced on Twitter.

The game reached the six million milestone at the end of March, 2013.

And you can bet this figure will increase even further thanks to the disc-based retail release which arrived in UK stores today, and has been in US stores since June 4.

Earlier this week, the PC and original version of Minecraft reached 11 million sales.

A version is also coming to Xbox One.
