Minecraft videogame creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson had criticised Microsoft for its gaming strategy in its upcoming Winddows 8 operating system, saying that the software major is ruining its gaming ecosystem.
Minecraft criticism follows similar comments from Valve and publisher Activision Blizzard.
Persson has also refused to allow Microsoft to certify it for inclusion in the Windows 8 gaming marketplace.
Persson tweeted that he had received an email from Microsoft, wanting to help ‘certify’ minecraft for win 8 (Windows 8).
The new OS was also critisised by Blizzard – the developer of Diablo 3 and World of Warcraft, saying that Windows 8 was "not awesome for Blizzard either".
