It hasn’t been long since Microsoft bought Mojang, the Minecraft company, for 2.5 billion dollars. The first obvious effect we’ve seen is that Minecraft will become available for Windows Phone – not that anybody has a windows phone, but it’s good to know if anyone does get a windows phone they can play Minecraft pocket edition on it.
Yes, Minecraft: Pocket Edition *is* coming to the Windows Phone! The port runs already, but there’s still much to do before any release
Poor Notch. He felt so stressed out with the responsibility of running a company that everybody is always watching. He hopes that he will be able to get on with his life now that Microsoft will be making those decisions without him.
Minecraft’s inventor, our beloved Notch, does not like Facebook. So what? Lots of people are “creeped out” by Facebook.
Well, it sounded awesome that Minecraft was talking to Oculus Rift with the idea of adding Virtual Reality gaming hardware support to Minecraft but unfortunately that deal is now over.
It turns out Facebook has just recently announced it bought the Oculus Rift company for $2 billion. Facebook has been buying all sorts of things for billions recently. It started with Instagram, then What’s App, now Oculus Rift. What is Mark Zuckerberg planning over there?
We were in talks about maybe bringing a version of Minecraft to Oculus. I just cancelled that deal. Facebook creeps me out.
Minecon is an official Minecraft convention held in Paris, France. It’s actually being held at Disneyland Paris! What could be cooler than going to Minecon in the world’s most romantic city? Well maybe going to the party afterwards with Notch and Skrillex!
Yes that’s right. According to the video invite/teaser tweeted by Notch, dubstep superhero Skrillex will be at the party, no doubt pumping out his huge sound… wub wubs and wow wows.
When you’re Notch you can throw a party like this:
There’s no secret, Notch likes Skrillex, and it’s suspected that Skrillex plays Minecraft (or at least he should). We do know Skrillex follows Notch on Twitter.
For Minecraft fans, this has got to be a match made in heaven. Minecraft is already enough like playing with Lego that it obviously appeals to the same kinds of minds. Many people have been awaiting this since it’s first announcement. Well you may be interested to know the official release of Minecraft-themed Lego is available to buy.
Here’s the Legendary Minecraft Hero himself, Notch, creator of Minecraft playing with Minecraft Lego:
Note that this Lego is the new mini type. So it may not be suitable for birthday presents for little kids. According to the box, the recommended age range is 10+, so that makes it easier than the famous Lego Architecture mini Lego kits which typically specify 12+.
