Minecon the "largest convention for a single game," according to Guinness

Guinness World Records has announced MineCon 2015 has broken the record for the largest convention for a single videogame.”

This year’s Minecon attracted 10,000 attendees – enough to set a new record for an event centered around video game IP.

"For a multi-genre games convention to attract 10,000 fans is a big enough feat in itself," Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition editor Stephen Daultrey said.

"But for a convention dedicated to a single video-game to get that number is nothing short of astonishing. This record is testament to the incredible fandom around Minecraft and the game’s ability to unlock the imaginations of millions of gamers around the world."

Minecon took place earlier this month at EXCEL London, with tickets priced at 129. new Minecraft: Story Mode details and the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition reveal were among the announcements to come out of the event.
