Amazon US Integrates Metacritic Scores
Whatever your personal position on the Metacritic, no one can deny its huge breadth, scope and potential to influence the masses on where their pounds, dollars, yen etc should end up when it comes to payday.
In a case of one giant jumping into bed with another in the hope of spawning GIANT sales, Amazon has integrated Metacritic scores into its US games listings, presumably with integration into the UK site to follow. On the other side of the fence, Metacritic is now attaching ‘Buy From Amazon’ links to its metareviews, suggesting something of a symbiotic relationship at work. Let’s see where this business relationship might lead.
