Minecraft v1.3 Arrives On August 1

4J Studios received an extra-special New Year's Eve treat last week when Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition surpassed the 5 million sales marker on December 31, 2012. The studio revealed the news on its Twitter feed, giving fans yet another reason to be immensely proud of the little indie PC game that could.

The work that the UK studio put in on its console refresh of Mojang's world-building game over the latter half of 2012 was nothing less than impressive. Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition was released on May 9, and 4J was able to push out a total of seven significant, content-enhancing title updates before the year turned.

The best is yet to come too, based on what we've heard from 4J chief Paddy Burns. Minecraft on Xbox 360 is not seen as a port, and you can expect 4J to start trying out some new ideas for the game in 2013. Just check out our interview from late-summer of last year for a few hints.
