There have always been strange combinations of company and product such as Facebook buying the Oculus Rift. Another has surfaced lately; Microsoft and Minecraft. According to both a MS News post and Mojang Blog post, Minecraft has now transferred ownership to Microsoft for $2.5 Billion. Any thoughts on this?


I have a feeling that the PS and iOS editions may 'spontaneously disappear' soon.

It was reported that Notch had never intended for Minecraft to get so big and was uneasy about how to handle such a large company. That was the primary reason for wanting to sell Mojang. I even read that they went to Microsoft first.

I don't expect any of them to just disappear. So far it sound more like that Microsoft will be handling the business end of things, while the current developers say nothing with the game or their community participation will change.
