Developer Mojang continues to rack up impressive sales figures for the indie title Minecraft, as the Xbox 360 Edition passed three million sales on Xbox Live Arcade earlier today.

Markus "Notch" Persson, co-founder of the Stockholm-based developer, has confirmed the sales figure on twitter.

The last totals released indicated Minecraft on XBLA had sold around a million copies back in May, meaning that an additional two million sales have been achieved in a little over two months.

The original PC version of Minecraft has sold over 6.7 million copies, and has over 35 million registered users.
