Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Retail Release Dated

Posted on May 1, 2013 AT 02:43am

Microsoft has announced the official release date for the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft‘s first jump into the retail space.

Boxed copies of the game will be available from June 28 and come with a free 48-hour subscription code for Xbox Live, but apart from this it is exactly the same as the downloadable version.

The Xbox 360 version of the game has managed to shift 5 million copies since its launch and a retail release will only push that number even higher.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
