Playstreet is a new service that sort of combines the best of Google’s street views and Yelp.com. In a nutshell, Playstreet, a Seoul-based startup service, is a local review service on select hot spots. Hotspots in cities are usually represented by streets — think Paris’ Champs-Elysees, New York’s 5th Avenue, Los Angeles’s Rodeo Drive, or Tokyo’s Harajuku Dakeshita Dori. Playstreet displays local review content on those popular streets in a unique way, where street view images are overlayed onto graphical maps, so that it can give users a feeling as if they were actually walking on the particular spot.
Playstreet only focuses on “hot spots”, and for Seoul, currently there are 29 hotspots. I think that’s plenty.
