A heartwarming story of true gamer fandom here.

Markus ‘Notch’ Persson, creator of the hugely popular Minecraft, has been tweeting about the next-gen consoles on Twitter. After expressing his interesting in the PS4 on his account, none other than Sony’s Adam Boyes got in contact with him to offer him free games. Notch’s response? No thanks.

“I have fun project, a PS4 is waiting for me, it’s Formal Friday at Mojang, and it’s our glöggpremiär. It’s going to be the best day ever” Persson initially posted.

Boyes cut in with: “send me a list of games you want and I’ll see what I can do!”

“I want to buy it myself legitimately! Games is too personal for me, I want to feel like “it’s mine”. 😀 But omg <3″  Persson’s reply read.

Persson has become a hugely-respected figure in the gaming industry in recent years for stories just like this. And it’s clear to see why when he turns own free games to have the chance to buy them himself.
