A pool party at Notch’s house tonight!

If you need another sign that the gaming industry is a serious business force and that game makers are the new entertainment moguls, look no further than the latest purchase of Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson. The co-founder of Mojang, who paid out the company after a $2.5 billion Microsoft buyout in September, just set a Beverly Hills real estate purchase record by putting 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 16-foot arched glass door that opens onto the pool, eight bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, closets, and a movie theater.” .” Oh, and let’s not forget the “three high-definition 90-inch television screens [that] bring a panoramic view of Los Angeles from the rooftop to the lounge below.” the $5,600 toilets in every bathroom, and Dom Perignon’s suitcases that were reportedly part of the deal. There are tons of photos and videos of the ridiculous abode on the official listing website.

“[Persson] fell in love with the home, its sleek, contemporary design and spectacular panoramic views stretching from downtown LA to the Pacific Ocean,” said Aaroe Group agent Katia De Los Reyes, who helped represent Persson in the sale, in a statement. statement. “The fact that the house was also decorated in such a beautiful style throughout was another major selling point for him.”

Last night, Persson tweeted a photo showing him putting his feet up in the “candy room” of the palatial estate, though he mentioned later that the giant tubes of sweet candies were “the one thing I don’t like to eat. But it looks cool?” The tweet prompted some of Notch’s followers after their own soft mocking photos reclining their feet in their own much cramped quarters.

Persson reportedly outbid Jay-Z and Beyonce for the mega-house, proving once and for all that computer programmers as a whole are more successful and cool than rappers. That’s how it works right?
