Minecraft tops 10 million on Xbox 360, celebrates with half-off DLC


No stranger to huge sales numbers, the people behind the Xbox 360 iteration of Minecraft have reacted to word that the game has sold more than ten million units in the best way possible: massive discounts for the game's dedicated fans.

Come Saturday, December 14, nearly every skin and texture pack DLC addition for Minecraft Xbox 360 will be reduced in price by 50 percent. We say "nearly" because while all of the standard packs will be discounted, those special mash-up packs merging Minecraft with content from another game - Skyrim, for instance - will not see a drop in price.

No reason is offered for this exclusion, though it's less likely a shadowy games industry conspiracy than simple common licensing issues preventing these packs from appearing in the discounted slate.
