Sony invites Notch to its E3 event by giving him a golden PSone
Markus “Notch” Persson, the creator of Minecraft, has received a rather classy VIP invitation to Sony’s E3 press conference: a golden PSone console.
The developer disclosed this news via a tweet:
Got a vip invitation to an e3 event from sony in the form of a gold colored psone. Wow. twitter.com/notch/status/3…

Although Minecraft has been released only for XBLA as far as console releases are concerned, selling well over 6 million copies on the network; it’s well known that he’s not too fond of Microsoft’s practices. He even tweeted about how unexcited he was by the Xbox One reveal stating that he “wanted a game console, not a voice and gesture based tv remote box.”
The invitation surely makes things interesting as Sony might be looking to woo him over to develop something for the PlayStation 4.
But we’ll have to wait until E3 to know for sure what the publisher plans to do by inviting him to its event.
