MICROSOFT BUYS MINECRAFT

Mojang–the company responsible for developing the hugely successful video game Minecraft–must be giving off some major Mojo because Microsoft announced this week that it is acquiring the Swedish-based developer for a whopping $2.5 Billion. In the acquisition, the game’s creators will be leaving the company. “Though we’re massively proud of what Minecraft has become, it was never [our] intention for it to get this big,” Mojang wrote, “the only option was to sell.”

Right, like that was a tough decision. Watch as Conan demonstrates how Minecraft’s creators are likely celebrating the acquisition.
