Minecraft is fairly vulnerable though. The kids are eagerly exploring different block games--these same kids loath Microsoft for some reason. My son who is 11 starts dropping the Microsoft hate one day and I play the devil's advocate explaining all of the cool stuff Microsoft offers. Still hates Microsoft. He got this from hanging with his friends online. These kids have no loyalty to games unless they get something from it that they cant get somewhere else. When my son hears of Microsoft buying Minecraft it should be comical.

They arent too cheap. They are worried about better technology supplanting their monopoly. This is just the thing to do it. The CC becomes more inconvenient for security purposes so people opt to pay with their phone--Google Wallet, Apple Pay, whatever. Those are abstracted systems that can switch the payment processor at a whim without affecting customers.
