Sony sent Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson a gold colored PlayStation One as a means to invite him to an event at next month's Electronic Entertainment Expo, the designer said over Twitter recently.
"Got a [VIP] invitation to an [E3] event from Sony in the form of a gold colored [PlayStation One]. Wow. :D," Persson said.
Persson said the system came without video or power cables and is not sure if the console actually works.
Neither Minecraft, nor any other Mojang titles, are available on Sony's PlayStation 3 or PlayStation Vita. However, Mojang said in March that it will "consider" bringing Minecraft to Sony platforms when its exclusivity deal with Microsoft is up. Support for Nitnendo's Wii U, though, is "very unlikely," the company said.
