"What would it look like if Nintendo built Google Earth?" That's the question used to describe Crackdown and APB developer Realtime World's new project, a mix of social gaming, social networking, and traditional gaming known as MyWorld.
Google Earth has already been used for a few games, like cheap flight simulators. Know what it hasn't been used for? A giant map to let you drive the A-Team's black van across.
Google Earth is pretty great as it stands, but I like where it's going even better. And that place is Simsville, with a stop-off at Liberty City along the way.
Reader Sun Scramble was checking out Google Earth the other day and - on a whim, we're sure - punched in 40°42'49.23"N, 73°59'51.44"W. Lo and behold, what did he see? A giant GTAIV ad.
