Where is an OVER 9000!!! Option? No I am just kidding, I doubt I would pay anything but if offered in person by Notch I'd probably bribe him $5 to play the update early xD. $5 isn't a lot and he deserves it. This update is probably one of the last big updates before the final game is released so I think it would be a fair sum to buy, essentially, the rest of the game, I only paid $10 so yeah It'd be like buying minecraft in Beta but getting Alpha benefits, I think its a good deal.
Herpderp. I want 1.8 as much as the next guy, but just wait for the fraking update :sleep.gif: I mean, well, it's incomplete... NPCs are buggy, endermen aren't finished (at least I think they aren't...), and it would be just plain stupid. Come on now, people.
