    Microsoft just bought Minecraft (Mojang) for $2.5 billion.

    Apparently they think the app will drive sales of their smartphones.

    Haha!

    This sucks, I loved that game, I planned on playing it again, but I'm pretty sure MS will somehow manage to screw things up and ruin MC. I guess I'll just have to wait and see.
