So I took at look at the high-def 3D maps app for Windows 8.1 and colour me impressed!
I have wondered at Assassin's Creed recreating Renaissance Italy's cities, and the thought that perhaps one day we would have our interactive maps like that. This preview is pretty close to that.
Now MS needs to use these maps not only for navigation and data mapping, but for some sort of huge game environment ...
Anyone else taken a look? When it has more cities added worldwide it's going to be pretty damn impressive.
