Well, I dislike Minecraft, so I think Microsoft buying it would tarnish the game, WHICH WOULD BE GOOD.

Minecraft being sold to Microsoft (if it happens) would make Notch a damn hypocrite.

I'm not really sure what incentive Markus would have to go through with this. He's already made it clear he has more money than he could ever spend.

Microsoft does a bad job with whatever they touch. The Skype app for iphone for example- UGHHHHHHHHH.


Why in god's name should they make anything proper for Apple? Why didn't Apple copy Skype and Google maps yet? Steve must be rolling on his grave.

Bad news, considering it just came out for PS4. Looks like that will be discontinued already.

I actually wouldn't. "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?"

Notch and others were outraged that Facebook bought the Oculus VR company (myself included). So if he did indeed end up selling Mojang like this, it would make him a hypocrite.

you are quoting the bible out of context here,the above quotation was made for those who reject the gospel for worldly gain or friendship.if he said one thing and do another then indeed the man is a hypocrite but since this is business what really matters to these ppl is the cash.dont tell me that you believed that they did what they did for the love of art or something like that.but i still think that you would change your tune if offered than kind of money after all you must also pay off all your bills/debts....besides,the ip its his and he can do with it whatever he likes ,no?

I'm quoting it because it fits this situation rather well. And you may keep your opinion of my actions, but I honestly wouldn't sell anything. Most of everything I have no use for I tend to give away.

No it's all good. It will still be on your beloved Playstation.

That is why we plan to continue to make Minecraft available across platforms – including iOS, Android and PlayStation, in addition to Xbox and PC.
