Today marks Minecraft's debut on Xbox 360, as the final installment in Microsoft's latest XBLA event, Arcade NEXT. NEXT started April 18 with Trials Evolution and concludes today with Mojang's insanely popular Minecraft, for a rather hefty 1600 MP.
It's a franchise that's come to carry a lot of weight, and to celebrate its console release, Microsoft is hosting a special live stream event this evening on Twitch.TV, featuring pro gamer "SeaNanners" and a number of other special guests. They'll be playing the game, of course, and offering their thoughts. The biggest incentive to watch, however, may be the opportunity to win a copy of the game and an Xbox 360 signed by creator Markus "Notch" Persson. Now there's a guy who needs no introductions.
Now if you're not familiar with SeaNanners, you can check him out in the video below, 40 seconds in. Tonight's stream begins at 6:00 PM PST.
