    We'll see what happens when it's all said and done. No point in theorizing about it.

    Well:

    2 million for Mojang is a little bit small, d'you think? Minecraft sold 18 million copies and it's 17.95.
    18,000,000 X 17.95 = 323.1 Million.

    That is a lot of damn money IMO
    So if Microsoft get Mojang, they may as well a couple more million buying the Devs of Mojang and they carry on getting all the moneyz

    :)

    2 billion, with a B. Roughly 20 years worth of profit for the sale of Minecraft.

    I think Microsoft will hinder minecraft, but not ruin it completely. Like I said, all we can do is wait and see.

    I'm sure Microsoft would do a great job if they own this game I imagine they can only make it better as Sarah said let's stay positive :) and who knows they might change the EULA :eek:

    Wasn't Microsoft part of the Halo series... atleast until 3 and I LOVE Halo so I say no worries, there may be a change in theme in further updates but I don't think it'll be fine...


    Wait.. Will Microsoft add Elites and the flood to MC!?!?!?!?

    i think this will add more stuff to the game because microsoft a way better developers than Mojang.

    Mojang: *Hands over minecraft to microsoft*
    Microsoft: *Takes Minecraft - Fires everybody*
    Mojang Staff: *Facepalm* "good luck without us >:)"

    * 2 days later*

    Microsoft: "We have released the all new re-vamped version of minecraft. it is no longer blocky! We have made it all look like real life! (mainly because we dont know to code the minecraft)

    *1 hour later*

    People: We hate your game! and bring bag the mojang staff!!!!!

    Microsoft: *talking to notch* here you go have your game back, we didnt want it anyway! *secretly copies the game files to make their own copy, everyone buys it*

    Interviewer: Why did you buy the new game mojang has released? and do you think it is a knock-off of minecraft?

    person: it is a knock off of minecraft but I bought it because, well you know, its made by microsoft!

    Yes I agree with Penguin, this is going to be really really bad. Who knows what they'll do? For all we know, they could make it so you have to buy a PC to be able to play it!

    It seems it might be a scam since non of eighter companies awnsered back to this...I think Minecraft is dying slowly and by Microsoft taking control the head devs could maybe consentrate on rebuilding Bukkit...Still to see

    Microsoft can either make really good games or some of the worst games... ever.
