Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson has become the latest developer to attack Microsoft's Windows 8 games strategy.

He claimed that the software firm risked ruining its gaming ecosystem.

His comments follow similar criticism from executives at the video games company Valve and publisher Activision Blizzard.

However, others in the industry said the new operating system could be beneficial.

Mr Persson revealed his views in two tweets.

"Got an email from Microsoft, wanting to help 'certify' minecraft for win 8. I told them to stop trying to ruin the PC as an open platform," he wrote.
