I doubt it. I'm pretty normal anymore. Beyond my Blazer being a bit ridiculous I blend in quite well. I'm boring anymore.

Microsoft is in serious discussions to buy Mojang, the independent Swedish studio responsible for Minecraft, in a deal estimated at more than $2 billion, The Wall Street Journal reports. An agreement could be signed this week, the site says.

I don't think so, think of all the other IP's MS bought that are still going strong. Turn 10, Bungie etc...

Only casualty I recall was Sierra which sucked cause it stopped production of one of the best console FPS games to ever grace the xbox 360. Shadowrun.

microsoft didn't buy mojang, they bought mojang's IP, i.e. minecraft. mojang is expendable - as they may one day find out the hard way

when you've just spent $2.5bn on an IP you don't fuck it up by closing off the platforms

part of the deal was that MC stayed multiplatform.
bear in my mind that they didnt just buy minecraft.exe, but all the merchandise and licensed products as well. and there are (and will be) many.

well right now Notch makes about 250.000 euro a day on the minecraft brand.
let that sink in, a quarter million a day.

the deal won't close until the end of 2014 so for the remaining 15 weeks == 105 days he'll make 26250000 euro, roughly 34 million dollars. provided the sales stay as they are, though likely to go up with the new gen versions coming out.
and then he gets his cut from the 2.5 billion.

bear in mind as well that a sizable chunk of that $2.5bn will probably be shares in M$

now all the new M$ CEO needs to do is prove to shareholders that it was a good deal, especially since Minecraft is nowhere near making $2.5bn (I think it's around $500m thus far)

MS will have the clout to push this even further, it's gonna be time before they break even but they got their name amoungst the crowd with a very profitable brand and dedicated fanbase.
