September 30, 2010 at 2:30 PM (PT)
The RIAA has officially awarded SOUNDGARDEN Platinum status for its new greatest hits CD, "Telephantasm," on the first day of its release, WIRED reports. Why? Because ACTIVISION BLIZZARD bought a million copies to bundle it with GUITAR HERO: WARRIORS OF ROCK, which hits retail next TUESDAY, OCTOBER 5th.
"These 1 million units, purchased by ACTIVISION, are non-returnable and represent official sales of the album," RIAA Director KATE HAROLD said in a press release. "I anticipate we'll be seeing more and more of these types of partnerships and cross-pollination of industries which benefit everyone, especially music fans."
All the tracks on "Telephantasm" can be downloaded as playable game tracks for $18.
