Minecon Hits Paris

Posted: Nov. 28th, 2012  |  By Michael Pearse

Get your diamond pickax ready, and watch out for creepers: Disneyland Paris is hosting the third annual Minecon, a convention dedicated to the ever independently developed video game that has taken the world by storm. Developed almost entirely by an individual known to his community of nearly 40 million followers as “Notch” and rated amongst the greatest and most successful indie games of all times, Minecraft will be celebrating its 3rd convention, its largest yet.

This is not a rock concert.

This is not a surprise PA at a nightclub by a boy band.

This is not the launch of a blockbuster movie or a car.

This is Minecon - the global convention for the players and creators of Minecraft - a video game set in a world made of blocks that, in just a couple of years, has become a worldwide sensation.

Rough industry estimates suggest the PC version of Minecraft has sold about eight million copies. But that estimate does not take into account the many who play it in on the Xbox 360, iPhones, Android handsets, on Kindles or on a growing number of other devices. All in all, the global community involved with Minecraft is thought to be about 40 million strong.
