    With MS buying Minecraft for $2.5 Billion, I am hoping one of the first things they do is release a version for the Surface. Would be great to enjoy the same kind of touch interface as iPad has on a Microsoft device. If anyone hears any rumors, etc. please post.

    That somehow never crossed my mind. Minecraft on my surface pro would be amazing.
    Include Mod support and I'm sold.

    Minecraft is already available for Windows, but I'm sure they will release a touch friendly Windows store version.

    Microsoft didn't just buy Minecraft for $2.5Billion, they bought Minecraft's publisher, Mojang.

    My hope for the application is honestly that the app becomes the go to version for Minecraft. It will need some serious work before then, but the new cross-platform play is encouraging and the app seems to be getting updated faster than the Java version. If this is the version that is played on the HoloLense I think that will nail things down as far as a unified cross-platform app being Microsoft's vision for the games future.
