Default Minecraft creator outbids Jay-Z, buys priciest home in Beverly Hills

If you need yet another sign that the game industry is a serious business force and that game creators are the new entertainment moguls, look no further than the newest purchase by Minecraft creator Markus "Notch" Person. The Mojang cofounder, who cashed out of the company after a $2.5 billion Microsoft buyout in September, just set a record for a Beverly Hills real estate purchase by laying down $70 million on a mansion in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood.

As reported by Curbed LA, the 23,000-square-foot residence features "a candy room, a car showroom, vodka and tequila bars, a 54-foot curved glass door that opens onto the pool, eight bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, apartment-sized closets, and a movie theater." Oh, and let's not forget the "three high-definition 90-inch television screens [that] bring panoramic views of Los Angeles from the roof into the down stairs lounge." the $5,600 toilets in each bathroom, and the cases of Dom Perignon that were reportedly part of the deal.
