Goodbye Minecraft! It was a fun time as long as it lasted. Microsift buys Mojang for 2.5 billion while at the same time lays off about 18000 employees! Hypocrites! TGS?? Aah, you are talking g about the CHGS... The cattle herding game show! This is what it should be properly called since several years.

Minecraft is loved by children, including my own. However, it is a one-off purchase after which you can use it forever, so there is no continued revenue stream. Many or most of those who would ever purchase it have already done so. The only way Microsoft can get money out of this is to start some kind of monthly subsription service to get an income stream. They will do this and destroy the game loved by millions.

Mojang was offering server space to run private Minecraft worlds. That's where a continual revenue stream can be had.
