IMHO it's half the point of linked data, for the internet of things and 
augmented reality to come together properly requires an open, meshed, 
universal data structure that's distributed and not silo based, there's 
simply no way to augment the real world with digital data from a single 
source or silo - thus, in many respects, that video and game is, imo, 
linked data /consumed/ correctly, and can only be done with linked data.

Best,
