Notch just tweeted, and blogged, an idea this morning about MinecraftCon 2011. He’s planning on possibly setting up something in Las Vegas for the release of the full version of Minecraft on 11/11/11. You can read his full post here
Hopefully this even will be more than just creepers and hobos running amuck playing minecraft everywhere. Generally cons have more to offer than what Notch is proposing for a convention but I suppose that is the idea of what Minecraft players do. It would be nice to see more than just Q&A sessions, like panels about indie games or Minecraft music video contests. There is only so much you can do with Minecraft though. Nonetheless, the people that attend will most likely have a ball…block rather.
