HES A FUCKING BILLIONAIRE NOW.
HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL?

nothing, why should i care how much money other people makes.

>>262800753

Like I shouldn't have bought the game even when it was pre-alpha. Just like every time I think about it.

I hope this deal happens so Carmack can shit all over this hypocrite on twitter.

I'm disappointed that he sold out, when he could have stuck with the admittedly beautiful and innovative product he created.

That being said, I'm not sure I wouldn't have done the same in the face of two billion dollars. So it goes.

If mojang continued to pump out legit 2/10 sequels to minecraft over the course of a decade and a half, people would probably stop caring about that too

>>262804714
Not true. Alpha and Beta Minecraft were good times in vidya. And on /v/. There is no denying that /v/ loved Minecraft once upon a time. Don't be a contrarian.
>>
>>262804785
To whom is that an insult?

>>262804505
Just confirms for me that Microsoft is in its death throes.

Holy shit I just realized Minecraft was "officially released" three years ago. Same for Skyrim actually what the fuck. Winnie the Pooh baseball was almost two years ago
>>
>>262804447
Nothing, as far as I'm aware. But, Notch stopped "supporting" the Oculus once it got bought out by facebook, and publicly criticized Oculus for going through with the fb buyout. In other words, he's a huge hypocrite.
>>
>>262804918
/v/ loved Minecraft when it was simple and niche. It was fun and easy to pick up and play,

As soon as it got popular, and Notch began adding in useless features, the entire game turned to shit
>>
>>262800753

This is the affirmation of the conditions that led to the first gaming crash: Western developers making incomplete products then getting away with as much money as they can before moving on. Its a terrible trend that has only gotten worse.

Features which you can turn off. If it was not possible normally before, there were always mods to get it exactly the way an individual wanted to play it.

No one ever "wins" the console wars. They just go on and on forever. They happened before you were born. They'll continue well on after you have lost interest in video games.

Well the team he left behind did improve on the code eventually, but it would have to remain Java-based if the boatloads of modding is to continue as it is.

>>262805749
He recognized it as an excellent modding platform and so left it as it is. If he incorporated anything into the game (such as the more animals mod), it would have to be something that everyone appreciates because it would be additional work to REMOVE base content if someone making a mod didn't like them.

I don't care anymore.

This guy made an half assed game and got paid mad riches for it, good for him. I mean I fucking wish this could happen to me too and I could go on vacations any time I fucking wanted while having enough expense to enjoy any hobby at 100% free time and dedicate all of my time to them. so if he got rich by doing little. Good for him.

I stopped expecting so much out of Minecraft. It's a big dissapointment that it can't be what it CAN be, but, whatever. even this half assed product is enjoyed by millions across the world both adults and kids, autists and normalfags.

This is genuinely a good thing. It kind of lowers the bar, but, then again, it kind of set its own genre (Fuck infiniminer. It never catched as much as Minecraft anyways). So it's not really hard to do better. It's just that nobody attempting to do a Minecraft-like is able to do without either ending up NOT making a Minecraft-like or completely plagiarising the game.

So fuck this complaining business. Sometimes I'm sick of people on /v/ being negative nancies and complaining all the time, calling Notch a jew (he is, but we should stop caring at this point), calling fans autists and crying huge crocodile tears over something they'll obviously never get.

What I liked about Mine Craft was the survival and shelter building aspect, but it's been so long now that I am positive that someone could make a much better game around those themes that isn't so ugly. Minecraft will always be interesting just for the novelty of everything being made of cubes and being able to stack them together like legos, but it's pretty much hit the plateau by now. All they can really do is keep adding new gimmicks to get people to check it out again.

I feel the same way about The Sims, really-- I like the idea of being able to design characters and focus on the life simulation stuff, but the controls in The Sims drive me insane and I hate it how I have to spend half my time having to empty the pee meter and make sure no-one starves themselves instead of making my fort cooler and finding ways to amuse myself. It feels more like work than play half the time.

I see this less as part of how Gaming is in a bubble and more as part of how Tech companies in general are creating a huge bubble.

All of the big old names are in a panic right now to spend as much money as possible on new 'hip' startups so that they can look less like Mr Burns and more like cool hip up to date fancy tech guys. And some idiot in Microsoft decided that Mojang was a worthwhile investment.

It's the exact same shit as the .com bubble.

Basically, fuck humanity

Hate to defend a fat jew fuck, but god damn.

/v/ sure is full of little faggots who think they're entitled to free updates for life on a game they paid for once. "b-but it's not a complete game!" they'll whine, after hundreds of hours of play time into it.
>>
>>262806493
Basically, my ideal time wastey game would be like a cross between The Sims and Minecraft. You would control your character directly and be able to socialize with other characters, but the main draw of the game is that you are looking for money so that you can build a cooler house and put more entertaining stuff in it. You wouldn't spend so much time trying to avoid starvation and wet pants, and instead you'd be focusing more on gathering resources to do cool stuff with. It would probably take place in a science fiction universe or something, and there'd be combat. It's probably way Molyneux levels of "too ambitious," but basically that's the kind of game I could see myself wasting an eternity playing.

Good for him. He created a game (initially by himself) that became wildly successful.

Notch taught me that all early access and kikestarter games are bad and I should stay away from them, for that I'm grateful since some of them have seemed interesting but every single one has either been bad or the devs have made retarded decisions after getting funded.

Thank you Notch.

I think it's more of the fact that he used to come to /v/ and take suggestions and shit way way back and then after his game got popular (partially due to /v/) he started using reddit more because that is the more popular forum for AMAs and shit, then started to not even update the game with secret friday easter eggs and just went on vacations for long ass periods of time and then somehow Minecraft got even BIGGER and now he got 2 billion dollars, and not even being humble at all about any of his success and being a total fucking hack in the gaming industry.

Personally, I think he just lucked the motherfuck out with the block building game at the perfect time.
>>
>>262803405
Of course not. And every single one of us could create a better game (not coded in Java, lol what a pleb). We're just.... busy looking at waifus right now.

>>262810458
>he used to come to /v/ and take suggestions and shit
So what, he doesn't owe us anything. You sound like someone who was friends in high school with a guy who won the lotto and now you want part of it.
>>
>>262810458
>he got 2 billion dollars, and not even being humble at all
I haven't seen him say anything humble but he doesn't seem like a jackass either. That seems like a flimsy justification to be upset at someone. I've never seen someone rail on Gaben because he's not "humble" enough.

>>262810458

Notch doesn't owe you or anyone shit, he never signed a contract saying he would always update with secret Friday shit and he never said he would work on the game 24/7 either.

Jesus dude, grow the fuck up and just admit you are jealous of his success, it will PROBABLY make you a better person.

Oh and that whole
>he isn't humble enough
bullshit? Yea fuck you. He isn't going around acting like a rapper or anything, he made a worldwide phenomenon and he fucking knows it but even then he sure as hell didn't go Kanye.

I doubt they will make back the 2 bil they are paying for Minecraft, in all these years at the peak of its popularity it has made what like a few hundred million. Good on Microsoft.

For practically being the first ones to go autistic about his game and play the shit out of it and give him feedback that he listened to? That's different that some old friend you had back in highschool winning the lotto, that's more like your first employee at your shit company that somehow exploded in profits but you fired that dude awhile ago cause he was inconvienant even though he helped build your shit.
>>
>>262810962

Did you compare the code for infiniminer and MC and see that it is 1:1? No? Then it's not stealing, get over yourself.

Saying Notch "stole" from Infiniminer is like saying every football game stole from Tecmo Super Bowl.
>>
>>262802134
He's not the first one who did it, but he's the first one who pulled it off.

I miss when /v/ used to play infiniminer.

But you're missing one key point

All those copies have already been sold dumbshit. There is literally NO ONE who hasn't bought a copy of Minecraft on something that was remotely interested in it
>>
>>262811030
>neo-/v/
>>
>>262810962
I play infiniminer when it was /v/'s flavour of the month. They're really not that similar, the only similarity is the cube voxels and the mining. Notch built a single-player survival game on top of a multiplayer mining game.

I seriously hope you aren't this autistic.

Okay just fuck over your initial fanbase that got your product out into the world, yeah man. Get the fuck outta here you kike shill

>>262807885
They're probably going to make minecraft 2: Autistic Boogaloo with moddable XML entities and make their investment back in a month.
>>
>>262811747

...How did he fuck over anyone?

What, because he didn't update it every day he fucked you over? Did he suddenly take back the copy he paid for? Does your account no longer work and you can't play it anymore even though you paid for it?

Do you even fucking KNOW what fucking someone over entails? Are you seriously this fucking stupid?
>>
>>262811403

Hmm yeah that's true. Though they probably just have to shit out a Minecraft 2 and like half of those people will get it again. Plus all the merchandise, it's like Angry Birds at this point. They made a shitty phone game and now there's like Angry Birds themeparks and shit. In stores there's all kinds of shit with those stupid birds printed on them
>>
>>262808384
yeah but they don't get 30 doolars a game, the licensing for Msoft is like 10 dollars prob less because it's a budget title and then packaging and marketing costs and then stores cut, I'd say at most $10 for mojang, they also have to pay for the development of the console version of the game, and knowing its potential for sale I suspect the studio receive royalties on the title, even a few dollars is millions for each studio that worked on it.

So what just over 500mil all up made on Minecraft, and the game would be at its peak in popularity, a sequel would be nice though, a sequel made by a competent team not written in Java.

On a side note good on Notch, good on making a ton of money and good on getting far more than the value of your game from Microsoft. Notch will never make another game of any note, he isn't good at making games, Minecraft was 50% luck 50% timing 0% skill.

I gave the guy 12 bucks years ago when he added crafting benches and have gotten countless hours out of it, lots of fun with friends, and they're STILL updating it. No micro transactions or any of that shit, and the modding community has created some great stuff. I'm glad he took the infiniminer concept and actually did something with it. I think he deserves his success and my positive experience with the whole thing has lead me to do more crowdsourcing since.

You guys are some seriously bitter faggots, I don't know what the fuck you want from the guy but you need to get over it, you look pathetic as fuck

>>262811212
>do you still call sandbox games elite clones
>>
>>262812049
My only real problem is that the game never reached anywhere near its potential, I don't like Notch because with all the money he made he didn't do anything with it, he could have, he could have easily hired a medium sized team and greatly improved on the title, but he didn't. Modding still isn't in the game after what like 5 years. I bought that game when it was still Indev too.
>>
>>262811913
>They'll monetize the franchise
Exactly

The real big question is will its attraction continue after its been commercialized and lost all grass root indie cred and is a shallow blatant cash grab?

I think you answered the question with bringing up Angry Birds

Expect some star wars, hunger games, harry potter Minecraft cash grabs and it will die
>>
>>262811961

what the fuck they don't need to package a digital game. and microsoft owns it now, they don't need to pay licensing to themselves. you also have to consider it's prolly going to be xbox exclusive now, that's going to shift consoles to autists, and then it'll generate money in other ways, like when they buy an xbox game some of the money goes to microsoft etc. alternatively microsoft will take a share off every copy sold on playstation

Well I better tell my old MC install that it isn't in fact modded, it only THINKS it is modded.
>>
>>262812428
He is a terrible programmer. I've written some mods myself and before the team he hire refactored it, it was a fucking mess of terrible coding practices.

Because of that, he had to reevaluate his aspirations for it. By the time he hired the rest of the people, the game had changed to something else. Whether or not it reached its "potential" really is a moot point. It's what it is, which is actually a pretty fun game.

As for modding, the community has already built a strong modding api already, mojang would just fuck it up if they tried to copy it
>>
>>262812647
Minecraft is available physically, and it sells a lot physically.

It's worth a lot more to Microsoft, but as I said it hit its peak already.

I doubt Microsoft will release Minecraft on Sony systems, even after its peak it is still a big draw.

Jealous, but kudos to him for making an obscene amount of money with very little effort.

And he promised that the game will be an open world survival horror focused on exploring caves.

Go play Deus or Don't Starve if you want muh survival. Nobody cares about that shit genre.

So now Minecraft will be pulled out of Linux and Mac, I imagine.
And it will come for free with Windows, which ensures that people stick to Windows as their home OS over the Linux which GabeN wants to promote.

They are going to need more, though. Like having Xbox games run natively on Windows or something.

One of the luckiest men on the planet, that's for sure. It took fuck all to do what he did. He didn't know anything outside of Java which is a fucking joke.

The community made the game what it is, with all the mods and whatnot. Even after millions of dollars were made by Mojang, Minecraft got minimal updates.

From someone who really cared about their fanbase and the community, Minecraft would be so much more now. It'd be even more than it is now within the first year.

Kind of jellymad because come the fuck on, 2 billion dollars? Microsoft, you dumb fucks. But, at the same time, whatever. It's one dude that got lucky. People win the lottery. Whatever. I hope this fucker does something good with that money. No one needs that much.
