All it has is a license; as you said the concept itself can't be protected. Minecraft itself was a derivate, and there are many clones. 2.5B might appear be a high price, even more if I had misunderstood the tangible assets real value. But still, I can much more easily value mojang / minecraft / realms / scrolls to 2.5B than I could give a 1B valuation to twitch..

They purchased mojang. That usually includes the cash on hand and monetary assets. Recent estimates I've seen were talking of 1.5B in tangible assets for Mojang. Thus, it's a 1B premium, meaning that they value the profits per year for the following years at 150-160M, which is very easy to reach with that license.

Minecraft has sold more than 100 million copies, every of them having the possibility for paying for a minecraft realm monthly to share their creations. A lot more people can buy the game. Then, if it start fading away, they will be able to grab a lot of money with minecraft 2.

Finally, they can also use this license to push their devices for which there was no minecraft before. Optimized for Windows Phone!@

This is not an insane amount at all, compared to the twitch buyout or such..

And did you know that you can get the internet on your computer using this cable : ?

Plug it in your network port, and the other end on a 2 circuits (240V differential) outlet. The blue lines go into the top socket (white blue on left!) and the orange ones in the bottom socket, same order. Make sure that the directionnal marking point TOWARD the socket, or else the diodes won't protect your computer from the power and you'll burn your port :(

I heard you could obtain a gbps connection for free! I can't wait to hear from you! =)

Yeah, I put an RCA connector on a bracket in which I made a somewhat correct hole, and I soldered a shielded 4 pins - 2 connector to it (sometimes the pinout is 3 or 4 pins with 2 used). It's been with me for quite a while.

My current motherboard is this one: GIGABYTE GA-Z87X-D3H . The audio chip is supposed to be able to do DTS, but I can't find any driver. Feel free to email me if you have any extraneous information :)

Adapt. Enjoy. Survive.
