Default Minecraft convention on 18-19 Nov 2011 (was 11/11/11)

Go to The Word of Notch to find out about Mojang's plans for a Minecraft convention on 11/11/2011. This is the official release date for Minecraft, but Notch is running polls about whether people would pay $US 90 to go to Las Vegas for the event or whether they would prefer it to be held elsewhere.

Let the voices of TOG Minecraft division be heard!

pity about the cost excluding travel and accommodation, otherwise I assume we would all be there!

We should have a TOG MC satellite event ourselves.

I think it should be in Sweden, similar to CCPs EVE fanfest that is in Iceland

I imagine you would

Will be interesting to see how it goes being the sole focus rather than just one exhibit at a wider show.

Apparently the date for the convention has changed due to Skyrim etc all releasing on 11th Nov. It is now November 18th-19th in Las Vegas. According to pcgamer (http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/08/03/minecon-first-details-mojangs-minecraft-convention-takes-place-nov-18th-19th-in-las-vegas/):

Quote:
The convention will be held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The registration site will launch next week with tickets available to purchase and complete details of what the event will offer. We’re expecting a lot of block-shaped amusements. For those keen to attend, keep an eye on Notch’s Twitter account for the announcement. Tickets are bound to go fast.
Anyone planning to go?

ps. The interview imbeded on that page is awful. The interviewer was saying things like "what should I ask you about now".
