As many of you already know, Minecraft is coming to the XBox LIVE Arcade in the Spring of 2012! What could be better than playing Minecraft on your console? How about playing it on your very own Minecraft-themed XBox 360? Now, you can! At Minecon, Curse will be hosting the Diamond Deposit Scavenger-Hunt drawing sweepstakes! In addition to a Minecraft-themed 360, prizes will include:
- Ultimate Razer Gaming Accessories Pack - x4 (includes Naga gaming mouse, Goliathus extended speed mouse mats, Anansi gaming keyboard, Electra gaming audio)
- Intel Solid-State Drive - x4
- $100 J!NX gift certificate - x5
- Sony Ericsson will be providing a Minecraft-branded Xperia play
...and much more!
In addition, we will have a few special events of our own, such as a forum exchange, where people online can communicate with attendees at the show, including a special display set up to show comments at the Curse booth and here on the forums! See your friends and chat with them live, or anyone else who may pay a visit to the booth - attendees will also be able to communicate with forum users from the booth!
In addition, there will be a green screen photo op where attendees can get their photo taken in front of a green screen, and then choose from 3-5 different Minecraft backgrounds! Participant's heads will be morphed into a cube in the picture to make you look like a minecraft character; we will also have props for people to pose with in their pictures as well! The pictures will be instantly uploaded to our Minecraft Forums Facebook page, where people can 'like' the photos. The photo with the most 'likes' will win a prize!
Also, don't forget that we still have a sweepstakes, where you can win a chance to get an all-expenses-paid trip to Minecon! These sweepstakes are only for a limited time, however - entries must be received by October 25th, 2011 - don't miss out! We're very excited to be at Minecon, and we look forward to seeing you there!
Note: the sweepstakes are open to U.S. residents only; we would love to have everyone, everywhere participate - unfortunately, there was no way to get all the legal paperwork handled for every participating nation before Minecon. Don't worry though, we will have something special for you in the future!
