Anyway, my price is two billion dollars. Give me two billion dollars, and I'll endorse your crap.— Markus Persson (@notch) December 18, 2012
Rumor has it Microsoft is in talks to buy Minecraft for $2 billion. It isn't as crazy as it sounds — and besides, $2 billion has always been the price tag. Just ask Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Persson back in 2012.
Here are a few other choice words from the outspoken developer about Minecraft's potential future home:
I'd rather have minecraft not run on win 8 at all than to play along. Maybe we can convince a few people not to switch to win 8 that way..— Markus Persson (@notch) September 27, 2012
Got an email from microsoft, wanting to help "certify" minecraft for win 8. I told them to stop trying to ruin the pc as an open platform.— Markus Persson (@notch) September 27, 2012
Lest we forget, there were good times as well.
Uhhhh, Microsoft just sent out a press release saying Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has sold a million copies in five days. Wow.— Markus Persson (@notch) May 14, 2012
Dinner with Microsoft. I got all worked up and nasty about Win8. I need a chill pill!— Markus Persson (@notch) November 7, 2012
Got to play with the Surface, and I quite like it so far. The keyboard cover thing is clever, and works great. No plants vs zombies, though.— Markus Persson (@notch) November 8, 2012
