Why does everyone stop for some reason like becoming popular when there goal isn't, just be happy about what you made!

Only 2.5 billion dollars? Hmm, I almost expected MC to sell for more.

I thought to the same. 2.5 billion in my opinion is little.

Minecraft has sold 50million copies, At an average of $25 per copy, that's $1.25 billion. So that means they effectively doubled the worth of the company.

Yeah, they way I see it, Notch and the other co-founders will never be hurting for money. $2.5 billion can allow someone to live comfortable for the rest of their life's without lifting a finger.

Do you think that Microsoft would make more things into the game or make it worst?

I think they will make it worse like in the xbox you have to pay money for texture packs and skin I think.

It's gonna be freaking ludicrous if they add DLC to as well... That or make you pay for modpacks, god forbid.

To be honest, I'm slowly moving away from gaming. I'm more into the socialization part of games now, so I couldn't care less what Microsoft does, provided they stay away from the chat feature.
