    "NEW YORK (CNN/Money) – "EverQuest II" players are used to buying things in the game.

    Need a sword? A couple of gold pieces will fetch you a sturdy one. Hungry? That can be remedied for a silver piece or two. Of course, both the merchandise and the currency are worthless outside of the game.

    Changes are on the way to the world of Norrath, though. Starting mid-next week, players will be able to order a real world pizza (with real world pepperoni, even) by simply typing "/pizza" in the game."...

    ...For Sony, this is the first step in what will likely be a broader transaction system. When players type "/pizza", a new browser window opens, connecting to PizzaHut.com and allowing the player to place a delivery order. There's no need to log out of the game and leave your fellow players in the lurch as they rush into battle."

    Crazy ****!

    Being able to order pizza from inside Everquest: cool.

    The new Motley Crue album posters in Splinter Cell: not cool.
