Rockstar Games’ Co-Founder Buys TRUMAN CAPOTE’S House For $12.5 Mil.

Dan Houser is the co-founder of Rockstar Games’ and through the company’s success has amassed undeniably bonerfying amounts of cheddar. We may not be talking Gabe Newell-sized racks, but considerable. In case you haven’t contemplated the Houser magnificence, the fact that’s spent the most money on a house in Brooklyn ever should help you keep it in mind.


Dan Houser must really, really like  In Cold Blood. According to  The New York Observer, one of the minds behind the best-selling  Grand Theft Auto  just dropped a mob-boss-worthy load of cash on the one-time abode of Truman Capote.

Capote’s perhaps best known as the writer of the legendary true-crime non-fiction book  In Cold Blood. Given the gritty bent of Rockstar’s hit games, it’s probably safe to say that Houser’s read–and probably reveres–In Cold Blood. It’s a nice bit of thematic coincidence that also signal how digital mediums are supplanting older ones, if you want it to mean all of that.  The Observer  reports that the historic home was purchased for $12.5 million, more than any other home in Brooklyn has ever sold for.

G’ddddddddddddddddamn. That’s some flow established right there. It isn’t exactly The Dude’s Missile Silo, but it’s impressive in a different manner.
