Amazon adds Metacritic to video game purchase pages
: The popular review-of-reviews site Metacritic has becomes an even more ubiquitous yardstick for the industry as online retailer Amazon incorporates its scoring into the purchase pages for video games.
In the game's summary, next to its customer review score, its aggregate critical Metacritic score is also now listed. If you click on the icon to the right of the listing, a popup shows the critical and user review scores from Metacritic, with links to the appropriate pages on that site -- as shown above.
It's one more feather in Metacritic's cap, on its journey to becoming the yardstick the industry measures by; however, developers aren't always happy
with the site.
