Sony Sends Minecraft Creator VIP Invite to E3 with Gold Coloured PlayStation One

Bribery 101.

Remember how we said that Sony is making a very, very concerted effort to lure indie developers over to its fold? This can be seen with titles like The Witness arriving first on PS4 and Thomas Was Alone currently released for PS3 and Vita. However, they’re going after one of the more famous indie developers in the industry: Namely Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson.

Persson recently posted on Twitter that he had received a VIP invitation to Sony’s E3 press conference in the form of a gold-coloured PlayStation One. See it to believe it.

With the success that Minecraft has seen on Xbox Live Arcade – and the success it brought to the digital platform in return – it only makes sense that Sony wants a piece of that sandbox style pie. We’ll see if this turns up any fruitful collaboration between the two parties in the near future, but for now, Microsoft’s decision to snub indie developers is just appearing more and more asinine as time goes by.
