"Microsoft says it'll reveal more about the HoloLens version of Minecraft at its Minecon event in London, which starts July 4. The company says Minecraft has more than 100 million registered players in 238 countries and is the best-selling PC game of all time. Microsoft Chief Executive Officer Satya Nadella told the New York Times in April that HoloLens was one of the big reasons the company ponied up $2.5 billion to acquire Minecraft creator Mojang.
