Can somebody change the first paragraph?[edit]

I'd like the first paragraph to be changed to

Minecraft is a sandbox video game originally created by Swedish programmer Markus "Notch" Persson and later developed and published by Mojang. The creative and building aspects of Minecraft enable players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, resource gathering, crafting, and combat. Multiple gameplay modes are available, including survival mode where the player must acquire resources to build the world and maintain health, a creative mode where players have unlimited resources to build with and the ability to fly, an adventure mode where players can play custom maps created by other players, and a spectator mode where players can fly around and clip through blocks, but cannot place or destroy any. The players can join multiplayer servers, which are often customized using plug-ins. Some of these servers are more PVP orientated, some involve aspects of Survival, Creative and Adventure mode, some have a built in economy, and some of them contain built in mini games. The PC version of the game is renowned for its third-party mods, which can add, but are not limited to adding, various new items, characters, worlds, and quests to the game.

  • It's too wordy for an introduction to the game. Half of these concepts make no sense to somebody new to gaming, and most of this is just a worse way of stating the same info. Also an external wiki can never be used as a source. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 23:02, 26 July 2016 (UTC)

And it was sold to Microsoft recently for over $2,000,000,000 or $2 billion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.106.7.235 (talk) 16:41, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

That wasn't recently and that's already included and sourced. —  HELLKNOWZ  ▎TALK

Not done: It's there because there is a specific UWP edition that is different from the main line game. -- ferret (talk) 01:55, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Is this the way we should handle W10 exclusive games now? ~ Dissident93 (talk) 02:17, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Since there is a completely separate edition for UWP, I believe so for this article. There's the normal Java based PC version for Windows, then the additional separate UWP version. -- ferret (talk) 11:14, 8 August 2016 (UTC)
Makes sense. ~ Dissident93 (talk) 20:00, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
