Soon after the release of 1.4 I found that I wasn't able to play on my online server because it was outdated. I then headed to singe player and created a new world, after running around for 5 minutes I found a random chest. I clicked the chest and it pops up with a message "Steve Co Supply Crate - You need a Steve Co. Supply Crate key to open this. You can pick one up from the Minecraft store." At the bottom it gave a link 'Go to Store' which I clicked on and found a page on the Minecraft site that showed a list of items I could buy with real money such as; Steve Co. Supply Crate Key, Miner's Helmet, name change, etc. The prices for this items just seemed ridiculous like $99 for a name change.....why do that when I can just buy another account for $20. I decided to see what would happen if I attempted to purchase something, I clicked on the 'Proceed to Checkout' link which then brought up the word 'Fiddlesticks!!!' along with a visual and audio of a dinosaur. At first I was like wtf is this a joke....then realising the date is April 1st (April Fool's Day) so I more then suspect this to be a troll/joke from notch? I was really just wondering what everybody's thoughts were on this.
Has anyone else noticed that it's not even April Fool's in Sweden yet? Is this the new April Fool's? Doing it the day before?
