The audience of Minecon 2015 in London have become Guiness World record holders today, as they form the largest convention in history for a single video game.
73 countries were represented in the 10,000-strong audience of the convention, now in its fourth year, with some travelling from as far away as New Zealand.
The representative said: "The record you have received is for the largest convention for a single video game – that’s Minecon 2015: 10,000 tickets sold.
"All that’s left for me to say is that Minecon, you are officially amazing."
The game was created in 2009 by Markus Persson, a gaming developer and founder of Mojang. He is better known by some players by his gaming name Notch.
In November 2014, Microsoft bought the game from Mojang for $2.5billion (£1.6billion) after Persson tweeted that he wanted to "move on with life" in June of that year.
Overall, the game has sold 70 million copies.Reuse content
