Sony bribes Minecraft creator with golden PSone

Sony bribes Minecraft creator with golden PSone
Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson took to Twitter to show off his VIP invite to Sony's upcoming E3 presser.

Notch received a golden PSone console along with a copy of Dungeon Master 2 and the invite to the company's PS4 event.



The developer has been a critic of Microsoft's recent moves, saying he was unexcited by the new Xbox One adding that he "wanted a game console, not a voice and gesture based TV remote box."

Minecraft, which was never released for the PS3, has sold over 6 million copies on the Xbox 360, a record.

As Notch says, Sony "sure knows how to bribe nerds. ;D"

    We have yet to see how bad the PS4 will be...and it was notch that called it a bribe first, not AD. AD did get one thing wrong...it is a gold colored PSone, not a golden PSone.

    Lol, c'mon a gold colored PSone? They didn't say gold plated PSone. Tell ya what, I'll offer him some gold colored teeth and see if he will come visit me so I can stick my foot.....

    guess I just read it in a harsh way. the PS4 is already looking better option just by the reveals. PS4 specs are a lot better as well.

    It is quite correct, albeit admittedly confusing, to refer to anything that is gold-colored as "golden" ^^' .
