Ported by Dundee-based 4J Studios, the Xbox version of the PC mega-hit broke XBLA records by selling more than any other title in its first 24 hours of availability on the platform.
Minecraft XBLA went on to sell over a million copies in less than a week and 4 million copies by the first of this month.
Here's what we said in our 9/10 Minecraft: Xbox 360 review: "Whether you're mining, crafting, building, or fighting - either alone, or with friends - there's nothing quite like Minecraft. An accomplished, streamlined port that's a perfect fit for Xbox 360."
Over four million votes were cast in this year's Golden Joysticks - almost twice the previous Guinness World Record-breaking best.
