Writer’s Note: In case some readers are confused about how an unreleased game can “go gold,” the video game and music industries have very different meanings for that status.

In the music industry, a “Gold” status means that a particular record, CD, or song has been purchased so many times. The number of sales is determined by area’s population.

In the video game industry, being “Gold” simply means that the game is finished and the publisher is manufacturing it for release.
