Minecraft creator, Markus “Notch” Persson is getting VIP treatment from Sony. The company has invited Persson to its PlayStation 4 event at E3, where it will presumably be giving the world a glimpse of the next-gen hardware. All the more fitting, then, that Notch’s invite came with a special golden PSone console.

He’s also been outspoken about Microsoft’s new Xbox One, claiming that the live TV features don’t mean anything to him as a game creator. Meanwhile, Sony’s been very open about its intentions to court independent developers – so this one might play out in the PlayStation’s favour.
