Seems it's only a matter of time until it gets ruined then. Microsoft bought Rare a long time ago if I recall and their games went downhill after that at least they seemed to. I may start collecting Jars of MC versions now since I don't trust Microsoft. But we'll see what happens, hopefully they don't mess everything up. I also wonder if this will affect the fanbase.  :s

Microsoft sux, Apple sux, EA sux, Google sux. They ruin everything. Anything good they have is topped by piles of (Word Redacted).

I think this is something good, why?

Notch said that Minecraft was more like an experiment rather than a completly serious project, getting out with that kind of cash before MC loses his already dwindling hype could allow Notch to make dunno, more games, projects, some people say he will become the Robin Hood of the indies and such.


To put it simply, Notch made the right choice, the amount of cash he got out of the deal will allow him to make a much bigger project (if he does it).

And if he doesn't, his new seaside villa will be covered with eggs and tomatoes, and his new Lamborgini will be stripped for parts)) XD

I concur with this...

but apparently Notch also gave away Mojang due to the build-up of stress...I guess from when it became a big thing...
Probably from hate comments and such...

Notch actually said if he ever makes another game that seems to build hype like MC did he's just going to trash it. Not entirely sure why he could just hand off further games he makes to someone else to develop preferably non giant corporations.  :s

I wouldn't start worrying about it yet since there isn't much Microsoft has talked about what they would do with Minecraft. One thing I did heard is that they will have a port for their Windows Phone so they can promote it and make sales. But that's nothing bad really. We'll see in the upcoming year when the sale is finalize. From there, we just hope for the best that they do nothing wrong with it. The only problem is how is Microsoft is going to gain back the 2.5 billion they spent? We'll also see on that.

Wait, so after Notch blew up in Microsoft's face and accused them of trying to ruin the PC as an open platform, Mojang turned around and sold out to them?

Now, I happen to have a lot of respect for Microsoft, they are my favorite company in the world, in fact. I just don't like hypocrites.

I know Notch hasn't had much to do with Minecraft for a while now, but I'm glad he stepped for good. I never liked that temper-tantrum throwing hypocrite.

Interesting.. I wonder how this will turn out but don't forget, even if Microsoft ruins it the fans will probably get some mods to keep MC going.. until Microsoft C&D's it.. Why does that seem so familiar... Cease and Desist.. it's like it's happened before to another fandom.. strange..
...
And even if you can't get mods, PC Minecraft can be downgraded without mods. (New Launcher)
Unless they remove that.. then, well...
