Minecraft, which has sold over three million copies and is still in totally arbitrary beta, will officially launch at Minecon on November 18 and 19 in Las Vegas.

The convention is set to feature various presentations including a keynote from creator Markus “Notch” Persson, a building competition, merchandise opportunities, cosplay, and exhibits.

Thanks, Joystiq.

    My only experience with the game was last week. Went on to Mikey Neumann’s (Gearbox) server after seeing him post about it on Twitter, and having a free trial from The Humble Indie Bundle.

    I logged in, ran about, dug a hole, admin got mad, followed him around making bad ‘you’re a square’ jokes.

    And *that* was Minecraft.

    99$, you kidding me?

    Not that I can go anyways, but I’d never play 99$ for that. I mean, what can they posibly have there for two days to make it worth your while? Lots of free food and booze? :O
