Notch: “I love working with Microsoft”, Minecraft Xbox 360 profitable in an hour

Posted By | On 10th, May. 2012

Notch, the creator of Minecraft is full of praise for Microsoft. And why wouldn’t he be? The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft has become profitable in an hour, and Microsoft is preparing a major press release for the same.

“Well then. Saw the official sales numbers for the first 24 hours of Minecraft Xbox 360, and it’s very, very good. Profitable in an hour,” he said.

He also added that it has sold better than what Fortresscraft did on XBLA.

It’s a known fact that Notch doesn’t like EA that much, but when it comes to working with Microsoft, he has no problems with it.

“Hey, Microsoft! You might be a big and scary American company that likes secrets and meetings and such, but I love working with you! <3,” he tweeted.

As mentioned above the press release which should be unveiled soon will show how much Minecraft sold on the Xbox 360, and considering Notch’s excitement, I’m pretty sure they broke records on XBLA.
