Good news for LittleBigPlanet fans on Sony’s consoles! A brand-new mash-up pack featuring Sackboy, Sackgirl OddSock, Toggle, Swoop and many more, is on its way to Minecraft on PlayStation.
Mash up packs let you change the way Minecraft looks. This one lets you LittleBigPlanet-ify your Minecraft world with textures, characters and creatures from Media Molecule’s adorable platformer. It even comes with a pre-build landscape and some catchy tunes taken straight from the game. What more could a Little Big Minecrafter possibly want?

The Minecon 2015 Skin Pack (All console editions)
Even more DLC news for y’all! To celebrate the awesomeness that is next week’s Minecon 2015, we’re releasing a free bundle of skins for both Sony and Microsoft consoles. This pack is extra-special because it features Alex and Steve wearing a selection of smart capes.
The Minecon 2015 Skin Pack will be available for just 15 days from the 1st of July onwards. Download it from Xbox Live Marketplace/PSN while it’s still hot. You’ve got nothing to lose but your bandwidth!
It’s time to submit your MINECON panel application! Each MINECON we try to have the best panels anywhere, and that means it’s up to some of you to bring the awesome! A good panel will give attendees tons of information or inspiration. The BEST panels give a bunch of both!
You’ll need to shoot a video of yourself pitching your panel, talking about why the panel would be awesome at MINECON and why you’d be the best one to be on it. Upload it to Youtube as an unlisted video if you don’t want others to see it, and submit the link with the rest of the information about the panel, including the other people you want to be a part of it.

Some frequently asked questions:
Q. What will there be to do/see/enjoy at MINECON?
A. We will have tons of panels, lots of exhibitors showing off cool things they are doing with Minecraft, and a bunch of interactive attractions during the event. Saturday night there will also be a party for everyone who attends MINECON. For some ideas of what happens at MINECON see the YouTube videos from our last one.
Q. Will there be a costume contest this year?
A. Absolutely! We love having people show off their creativity when it comes to their Minecraft costumes. There will be prizes and accolades for the best of the best. Here is a video of our costume contest from the last MINECON.
Q. Can I sell my ticket to someone else if I can’t attend?
A. Nope! You can request a refund and those tickets we will resell at a later date! This will keep it as fair as possible.
Q. How can I volunteer to be a MINECON Agent?
A. Each year our MINECON Agents help make MINECON possible, it’s a huge event and couldn’t happen without them! If you want to volunteer, head over and fill out this form. If you’re chosen you will not need to purchase a MINECON ticket!
Q. Can I buy a MINECON ticket just to get the fancy cape?
A. We want all tickets to go to people who will come and enjoy the event, so only people who come to MINECON will get their cape. When you arrive, we scan your ticket, and only scanned tickets will get a cape.
Q. I’m taking my daughter/son/nephew/neighbor to MINECON but I’m an adult and don’t play Minecraft, do I need a ticket for myself as well?
A. Yes you do! We have players of all ages and we have events and things to do for everyone (even a bunch of cool panels for parents of Minecrafters) so all attendees will need to purchase a ticket.
Q. I have an awesome idea for a panel!
A. Well that’s not a question, but soon you’ll be able to submit panel ideas, and maybe yours will be chosen!
Q. What if I miss out on tickets or can’t make it all the way to London?
A. Worry not! We will have an amazing live stream that will run during the entire convention. We’ll be streaming the opening and closing ceremonies, as well as some of the coolest panels! Information on the live stream will be announced before the event. Afterwards, all the panels will be uploaded to our YouTube channel, as well as some videos we make capturing some of the fun of the event.
There will be more information at minecon.mojang.com before tickets go on sale, so if you have a question you didn’t see answered here you can tweet at me and I’ll try to include it on the site.
If you like Minecraft, and you like people who like Minecraft, you’ll probably like MINECON. It’s THE place to see all the cool Mojangstas you fancy, meet people who love Minecraft maybe even as much as you do, and attend panels and events full of YouTube creators and a ton of other talented folks!
This summer we are heading to London, UK to hang out with 10,000 of our closest friends (hint: that’s you!). As usual there will be panels, contests, tournaments, events and a soon-to-be-announced show-of-some-sort for our Saturday night bash.
WHEN: July 4-5, 2015
WHERE: ExCeL London Exhibition and Conference Centre
WHO: You, hopefully!
Since you’re bound to have more questions, I’ll ask myself some in this handy Q&A:
How do I get tickets?
Ticket sales will happen in February, exact date and time will be announced in the next two weeks. You’ll head to minecon.mojang.com to purchase them, but they will go fast! To accommodate different people’s schedules, they will be released in two batches on the same day, different times, 5,000 tickets in each batch. When you buy your ticket you’ll also get access to our discounted hotel pricing, so don’t go booking a hotel room just yet!
How do I become a volunteer (aka MINECON Agent)?
So you want to be a part of the event? We will be taking volunteer submissions next week. You’ll fill out an online form and we will get back to you before tickets go on sale. Watch mojang.com for more details.
I have a great idea for a panel, how can I make it happen?
Our community submitted panels have been some of the best panels we’ve had! Panel submissions will begin in early March. You’ll need to fill out an online form about the panel, who would be best on it, and submit a video of yourself describing the panel and why it should be at MINECON.
I want to exhibit at MINECON. How do I get a booth?
Each year we have a nice selection of awesome exhibitors, and you could be one of them! You can contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org for exhibition booth requests.
More details and information will be coming in the next couple weeks, keep watching mojang.com for all the answers you seek!
I’ve been getting a lot of questions about MINECON lately, because before this time last year everyone knew the date and location and ticket info for MINECON 2013. While we don’t have a set date for the next MINECON just yet, I wanted to let everyone know that it won’t be until some time in 2015. I’m shooting to have it in the spring in London!
While we’d love to do MINECON every year and it’s the only event we do as a company, we want to make sure we can give it the attention it needs, and that means that springtime next year will work best!
As soon as I have confirmed information it’ll be out there. We always announce as soon as we confirm with the venue and have a signed contract, but never before, because we want to make sure we can follow through with the event and we never want people to start planning to attend something that might not happen. So watch out for information in the coming months!
This year we’re holding our third MINECON event, and now that tickets are sold out and we are deep into planning I thought I’d give a little bit more info into the event and how/why we do some of the things we do for it.
MINECON is exciting to us. It’s a chance to bring together thousands of Minecraft players all in one place and give them a chance to meet each other and Mojang, and give people a really amazing experience involving a game that is so integrated into our lives.
