Last week, we wondered when -- not if -- a videogame version of the Navy SEAL raid on the Osama bin Laden compound would pop up.

It didn't take long.

And a game designer who goes by the name Fletch created a level for the first-person shooter, Counterstrike, which lets you play in bin Laden's Abbottabad compound, Nick Bilton reports (above).
