Dan Houser, vice president of creative at Rockstar games, recently spent $12.5 million dollars on the former residence of author Truman Capote in Brooklyn, New York.

By purchasing the home (which should now be referred to as the Houser house), Houser set a record for the largest amount spent on a home in Brooklyn. The previous record was $11 million.

Rockstar Games and Dan Houser like to go big when it comes to video games. Apparently they do the same when it comes to real estate.
