Notchs new Home (Update: in Minecraft)

Das hier gewinnt man, wenn man eins der erfolgreichsten Games aller Zeiten in der Garage entwickelt, von dort aus einmal den kompletten Planeten erobert und hinterher die Bude für ein paar Millarden an Microsoft verkauft und wenn sich das einer verdient hat, dann Markus Persson. It has Classic Car Living Rooms, Candy and Transformers. It's ironman-like crazy. Well done, Notch!

A Beverly Hills mansion that has been widely publicized with much celebrity and international buyer interest, triggering a bidding war, has been sold to Swedish billionaire Markus Persson for $70 million by Sally Forster Jones and Katia De Los Reyes of John Aaroe Group, a leading luxury residential brokerage. This is the highest price ever paid for a home in Beverly Hills and it closed in a lightning fast six days. Persson’s purchase included everything in the house from luxury furnishings to exotic electronics such as the automated 54–foot curved glass door in the living room that opens onto an infinity pool with iPad-controlled fountains and spectacular views. Cases of Dom Perignon were part of the deal.

Persson at 35 is one of the world’s youngest billionaires having sold his company, Mojang, to Microsoft for $2.5 billion in September 2014. Born in Stockholm, he programmed his father’s home computer at the age of seven and created his first game at eight. He is the creator of Minecraft, a hugely popular game that is a favorite of young players worldwide. Within the gaming community, he is known by his nickname “Notch.”
