Google is said to have teamed up with board game maker Hasbro to launch “Monopoly City Streets”. This new interactive Web 2.0 game will allow users to compete in a live worldwide version of the popular game.
“It’s an ambitious venture that we’ll confess to being fairly excited about: players will literally be able to buy any street in the world, and compete with every other player on the “board”. You start with 3 million Monopoly dollars, and can build not only hotels and houses but also football stadiums, castles and skyscrapers.” reports the UK’s Guardian. An simple example: Downing Street in the UK will cost $231,000, while Pennsylvania Avenue will cost $2 million.
