Why should they give money to Valve?
p.s. Steam allows you to upload beta games

It's unlikely, apparently Valve approached Markus Persson but he declined.

LOL, is he insane? Steam is the way to go for now. Why did he decline?

It's important to note that Minecraft is nowhere near being a completed game. It will still be quite a while before it's ready finished.

I haven't heard about Notch denying Steam, but I can't imagine Steam adding an unfinished product to their catelog. In the mean time, you can add it to your Steam library by clicking "Add non-Steam Game to my Library" under Games menu.

Just browse for the Minecraft launcher and select!

No , and it probably won't. Maybe becouse Minecraft is written in Java :)

answered 8 years ago by xboxer King (32,462 points)   6 11 48

There is a very good chance. The maker did meet with the owners of Steam but a deal is yet to be made.

I'm sure notch would love for minecraft to be available on steam, I'm doubtful that that will ever happen though.

Nope. Long time? It's still yet to reach Version 1.5. But the populariy is overwhelming. Hightly unlikely to come to steam. Notch is more comfortable with what he's doing now.
Some people add minecraft (non-steam game) to steam client and play it. ( it looks like they're playing from steam, but they're not)

Minecraft is still in Beta. Notch doesn't want Minecraft on steam because then VALVe will get insta-rich. And once, when i turned on MC, the message on the screen was "Not on Steam!"

Unfortuantly not, probably for the best anyway. Imagine how often STEAM goes down, then combine it with how much the login on Minecraft goes down. That would be a  fustrating hassle on some days.

Not now.

But I think it will in the future.

Valve fan-base is very similar to Minecraft fan base.

 

It is a WIN-WIN situation.

as it stands, no.  But I'll bet that it could happen someday!

Probably not. This way though, Mojang gets the majority of your money directly into their pockets.

It's not going to be on Steam, and it doesn't really need to be. The download takes 1 minute at most, and Notch keeps his servers up and running pretty well. The game isn't finished either, so Steam is not going to be considered until it's done, which won't be for quite a while.

As awesome as that would be I don't see that happening he is doing really good on his own and I don't see him joining forces with them
