MCX360 was made by 4J Studios not Mojang... since a different company made the game AND its on micosoft's xbl we have to pay for their effort... otherwise it wouldn't have ever come to the xbox360 since Mojang didn't really plan on porting it to the xbox.
I'm unsure how that changes what Notch promised during alpha though. He never said anything about whether or not a different developer making the game would invalidate the guarantee.
Also citric, I don't know why you wouldn't believe that when Notch said a new version of Minecraft is coming to the XBox 360, he was talking about a version of minecraft for the XBox 360. I do honestly believe I and every other alpha customer are entitled to an XBox 360 minecraft key.
