Followup post by Notch elaborating exactly why it's pure marketing talk by guys looking for nice fat cheques. Certainly nothing you'll see in games anytime soon.

Here's an example of something voxel based that actually does exite me.
That would excite me too if it could be done on something larger than a postage stamp. Still, even at an early stage there is a whole new field of gameplay possibilities using voxels or this unlimited detail type engines that don't require huge maps in the first few years until hardware opens it up more.

The money saved from studios tweaking polygon counts and such can be redirected to making storylines less hokey and vapid like they are in 98% of releases now.
