Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition has sold over 3.6 million copies, Mojang business developer Daniel Kaplan revealed on Twitter.

The port was released in May and hit 3 million sales by June; earlier this month, it was still shifting 17,000 copies a day and remains high on the Xbox Live Activity charts. The PC version has sold over 7 million copies.

Just a sort of anti-PSA today to tell you not to worry. Over the weekend, some scurrilous types found an exploit in Minecraft’s authentication server which allowed them to log in as and impersonate other players. No passwords or other personal details were compromised; it was just a matter of your reputation possibly being besmirched.
