I don't know what else to say other than you are dreaming if you think nothing changes except the the source and amount of funding.

I agree with some of Notch's points, but for some reason he just comes off too me as thinking he is WAY more important than he actually is.



There's only a handful of games that are bigger than Minecraft. notch has made himself one of the biggest developers in the industry.

Facebook is already a platform for games that is used by millions of people daily. It'd be shocking if they don't continue along their path.


I think FB envisions the OR as a potential giant market that would be similar to a gaming system.

FB will probably try and integrate FB/OR into some applications, but it doesn't make sense for that integration in the type of games we enjoy.

Remember, OR is a physical unit you have to purchase, so FB only gains from OR having as many applications as possible.
