The official website for MineCon, the first annual celebration of all things MineCraft, is incredibly difficult to get to at the moment, as tickets for the big November event have officially gone on sale for $US99 apiece.
Held November 18 and 19 in Las Vegas, Nevada, MineCon is a chance for MineCraft players around the world to converge, swapping server addresses, patting each other on the back for the nifty things they’ve built, and basking in the shadow of creator Notch and his crack team of programmers, artists, and business peoples. Tickets are on sale now for the recently announced event, with an advance price of $US99 per person.
The first 500 fans that register for MineCon will be entered to win the “Ultimate Fan Experience”, which includes a hotel room for the show, VIP access to panels, and a meal with Team Mojang. Considering the strain fans are putting on the site at the moment, I’d expect that bird to have flown already.
In fact, the registration page seems to be suffering from some severe technical issues at the moment. Hopefully they’ll get that fixed shortly and we’ll be able to accurately judge how fast tickets sell out.
