Minecraft on Xbox 360 playable at MineCon

Developer Mojang Specifications, the outfit established after the success of the indie fave MineCraft, has revealed that the Xbox 360 version of its smash-hit will be playable at the first ever MineCon fan event.

MineCon, which is sponsored in part by Microsoft, takes place in Las Vegas on November 18 through November 19. Tickets to the event are available for $99 and come with a few bonuses.

Minecraft has sold "nearly four million copies during its alpha and beta phases." Will it be able to replicate that success with the upcoming Xbox Live Arcade port next year?

Update: Minecraft creator Markus 'Notch' Persson reiterates [via Twitter] that Minecraft will be exclusive to the Xbox 360.
