Xbox lead Phil Spencer responds to a letter from 10-year-old Sabrina Lane, a Minecraft devotee.
Young journalists can make a difference these days, it seems.
The Seattle software company doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to acquisition integrations (think aQuantive, for example), so it’s not surprising that a $2.5 billion deal for the developer of Minecraft has raised some concerns among the game’s most dedicated players.

Someone at Microsoft was listening.
This week Sabrina received a letter from Xbox lead Phil Spencer assuring her that Microsoft won’t mess this one up — in fact, they’ll look for ways to make Minecraft better.
