Over on ihobo today, another sales-oriented piece exploring blockbuster videogame sales from the perspective of an imaginary certification system. Here's an extract:
Let's suppose there is such a system, and unlike record sales it is based on global aggregate sales, not just regional sales. Let's define the boundaries of these sales as follows:
Gold Games sell 5,000,000 units globally
Platinum Games sell 10,000,000 units globally
Diamond Games sell 20,000,000 units globally
Which titles have enjoyed these degrees of success, and can we begin to venture why?
