Not everywhere. You make a good point though. Although, I could still see it happening. The thing is already there in existence.

I should have been clearer, the map itself is indeed sort of neat, but an NES version would make Google lose a stupid amount of money to develop and distribute.

Not even 8-bit...

It's 4-bit (16 color).

Completely true.
Although the prank would be even more hard core if they gave away some "free" cartridges and had it say "April Fools!" once loaded.

Probably would have been better if they had pixel buildings in Street View but hey, it's still a pretty good prank.
