Well it has happened, the evil empire of Microsoft has taken over another wonderful game franchise and is now calling its own. Mojang and Minecraft have been purchased by Microsoft. To be honest I really do not have much to say about this but say that I am really disappointed, that this was allowed to happen
Ok now to get off of my soap box for a minute. It is being said that the industry is receiving this news in a positive light. One of the big reasons for this is that it does show that MS, is expanding out to different sectors away from their core model. More customers, more money, more money maybe more innovative products and games. Only the future will tell what MS will do with Minecraft.
All I can say about this right now is "We will see"
