While we thought Trials HD would hold the title for most-downloaded for at least a few weeks, Micecraft has smashed through a few blocks to take the title as most downloaded XBLA title.

It’s official: Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has has broken all previous Xbox LIVE Arcade digital sales records, selling more than any other title in the first 24 hours on Xbox LIVE Arcade. I just looked at the leaderboards and there are over 400,000 people playing…so that will give you an idea at how well it is doing. Congrats to 4J Studios, Mojang  and Microsoft Studios for all the great work.
