Minecraft Creator Tells Microsoft: 'I Love Working With You!'

If we are going to tell you about when one of the most influential game developers in the world calls one big video game company a ‘bunch of cynical bastards', (presumably due to them labelling a bundle of games they published as "indie") we ought to tell you about a company he likes, too.

"Hey, Microsoft!" Minecraft maker Markus "Notch" Persson tweeted yesterday, "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 that on the launch day for the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft, a game he says today has sold so well that it was "profitable in an hour."

    Indie game developers on the other hand...

    Of course he likes Microsoft, they're helping him get money.

    He'd like EA too if they helped him get money.
