This would be huge. I wonder if this means Google wants to get into Games?

You're thinking too small.  A Google Portal gun!  Tie it in to the street level view, register your Portal Unique Designator, and one of their Street View cars will generate a portal keyed to your device.  Simply open a portal on your end and step through!

You're still not thinking big enough. Gordon Freeman's already in France, right? Point a Google Portal to CERN and have HL3 set at CERN!  icon_lol
