Attendees of MineCon, the official convention for Minecraft, will be able to try out the Xbox 360 version of the indie building game. This will be the first time that the 360 version is playable by the public.

Minecraft for Xbox 360 is currently in heavy development and we are very happy with the progress," said Mojang's Carl Manneh. "Daniel is working tightly with the 4J team to coordinate Notch’s design decisions. We want to keep the core experience of the original PC version intact, while ensuring the game fits its new platform."

Microsoft is the main sponsor for MineCon. In addition to presenting the 360 version, Manneh says that Microosoft will be "showing off some cool stuff in the exhibition area."

MineCon will take place on November 18th and 19th. The event will feature keynote speeches by designer Markus "Notch" Persson and others, as well as building and costume contests. The convention will also mark the official launch of the PC version of Minecraft, which has been in beta since December 2010.

The 360 edition of Minecraft, which supports Kinect, is expected to be released in Spring 2012.
