Rich Video Game Dude Buys The House Beyoncé And Jay Z Wanted

Just when you thought there was no one more powerful in the free world than Beyoncé and Jay Z, some computer nerd comes along and is like SIKE!

According to TMZ, Swedish video game programmer Markus Persson dropped $70 million in CASH for a 23,000 square foot home in Beverly Hills that the power couple was hoping to buy. Bey and Jay allegedly visited the house a few times before placing an offer, but Markus, who sold his company Mojang to Microsoft for $2.5 billion, outbid them.
