Minecraft Becomes the Most Played Game on XBox LIVE
Move over, Modern Warfare 3, because there’s a new sheriff in XBox LIVE Town. His name (or maybe “her name,” suppose that’s not up to me) isMinecraft, the game officially announced as the most-played game on LIVE.
The open-world, blocky conquest game has already gained approbation as the most successful game on LIVE, selling over 1 million copies in 5 days, but according to GameRanx it now has the highest number of unique users as well. Notch, the developer of the game from its humble PC beginnings, is sure to be mighty proud of this “achievement.” Heh, get it? Achievement? Because it’s on XBox LIVE, and…yeah, you get it.
Modern Warfare 3 and FIFA 13 take the second and third spots, respectively, but with the holiday season fast approaching, who knows what’ll show up next.
