Back in September, Minecraft creator Markus “Notch” Persson became ludicrously wealthy after Microsoft bought the game for $2.5 billion. And as of this week, he’s now the owner of a $70 million
megamansion in Beverly Hills, California. According to Curbed, it was all but expected that Beyoncé and Jay Z would win the bid, but alas, Beyoncé and Jay Z didn’t make Minecraft.
That $70 million includes everything currently in the house from furniture to artwork to an 18-foot onyx dining room — “cases of Dom Perignon were part of the deal.” It’s apparently the highest price ever paid for a house in Beverly Hills, which isn’t exactly known for frugal living. It’s also less than three percent of Minecraft’s price tag.
A undercover officer named Rogers is the only one who can get in close enough to the criminals that terrorize neighborhoods with drugs and violence. However, he finds himself becoming part of the problem as he almost becomes what he’s trying to bring down.
