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 labeling 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."
