We reported to you that Gears of War man Cliff Bleszinski called Minecraft maker Markus Notch Persson a pouty kid for withdrawing his game from development duties with Oculus Rift - owned by Facebook. Like it was going to top there?
Of course it wasn't. Notch bit back - and then Oculus VR got involved. Read on for that. In terms of context - the report is here

. Now read on...
So, Notch took to Twitter
CliffyB, one of the investors in Oculus, calls me a "pouty kid" for cancelling the Minecraft thing. Damn straight I am
And then added some amazing context
"@therealcliffyb also, the "ball i'm taking home" was a potential free version of Minecraft designed to promote VR."
Then, as VG27
points out, "Responding to Luckey’s claim on Kotaku
