Intro suggestions[edit]

Regarding the first sentence ("Minecraft is a sandbox independent video game"), the phrase 'open world' would be more understandable. I think 'sandbox' has too many other connotations.

More important, if Microsoft has bought Mojang, is it still an independent video game? Especially at a $2.5B value? Maybe skip commenting on that in this intro.

Maybe change the first sentence to: Minecraft is a popular open world video game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and developed and published by the Swedish company Mojang since 2009..

Minecraft Forums link[edit]

Hi,
Should there be a link to the Minecraft Forums in the External Links section? After all, it's Minecraft's main community page :).

"nearly 2.4 million copies have been sold across all platforms" ... this is incorrect. I believe it should read, "nearly 54 million copies..." 140.254.45.32 (talk) 15:37, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

I've done this. The lead was incorrect and/or out of date. The sources down in the Commercial subsection of the Reception section cover it. -- ferret (talk) 18:17, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Minecraft as therapy for autism[edit]

These sources [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] are reliable, right? Are you ready for IPv6? (talk) 11:56, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

  • Buzzfeed no, Pixelation Labs blog no, Autism Key not sure, the others are (certainly The Guardian, Forbes, and SBS are.) Lukeno94 (tell Luke off here) 12:09, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

references in popular media[edit]

The article claims that these references were unpaid. Is there a source to back up these claims? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.162.105.77 (talk) 19:06, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
