Minecraft Sold To Microsoft
By:Jacob Shaver, News Reporter
The Microsoft Corporation bought the company Mojang, the creator of Minecraft on September 15th, 2014.
Most people believe that Markus (Creator of Minecraft) was getting tired of all the pressure of keeping a world-wide gaming company alive. So when he got the chance to sell all his pressure for 3.5 billion dollars, he took it in a heart beat.
What will the Microsoft company do with Minecraft next? I have some ideas, but no one knows exactly what will happen. People have been talking about these main changes that Microsoft might make, but no one knows for sure if they are true. Here are a few questions that players have:
1. Will Microsoft make kids pay for future updates?
2. Will Microsoft make Minecraft not work on Apple, since Microsoft has a rivalry with Apple?
3. What will Microsoft do next with Minecraft?
There is one person that gives us all hope. Jeb (Markus's right hand man) is still working with Minecraft. So he will be able to help Microsoft figure out Minecraft and teach them the ways of the game.
Minecraft is Educational
Parker Hess, Student Reporter
COLUMBUS - Minecraft, one of the most popular game around is educational. Minecraft has 2 different ways to play first, you have single player. Second, there is multiplayer. In single player all you do is play by yourself, and fight through the night. In multiplayer you can play with your friends and have a good time.
You are probably wondering how this is educational. First, if you right click a stack of items which is 64 in Minecraft you get half of the stack. Even though the game does the math for you, you will eventually learn that if you right click (divide) a stack you will get 32. If you right click 32 you get 16, and if you right click 16 you get 8. As you can see Minecraft can educational in that way.
George Lodestein said, “Minecraft is very fun, but educational.” Another way it can be educational is when you build a house. When you build a house you usually build with squares, so if you wanted to build a 32x32 house you would have to do some math to get the perfect amount of blocks. Minecraft might seem fun and have no educational things in it, but I can assure you that it is. You also have to use skill and strategy to survive. Minecraft is one of the best video games out there, but you would have never thought that it was educational.
