Metacritic integration coming to Amazon game listings

Review aggregator scores to be included in Amazon listings

Amazon looks set to incorporate Metacritic review scores into its video game listings.

The functionality appeared to have gone live earlier on Wednesday, but is not in effect as of the time of writing (4pm Pacific, April 2). It's unclear if the new functionality had suffered a premature launch or a technical issue which has forced it offline.


The integration of Metacritic scores into Amazon listings appears to come as part of a wider reaching deal between the two firms, as the Metacritic website now also features 'buy from Amazon' buttons on its game listings.

Amazon has dominated headlines today with the reveal and sudden US release of its Android-powered micro console, the Amazon Fire TV.

Amazon Game Studios has also announced the recruitment of Portal designer Kim Swift and Far Cry 2 designer Clint Hocking.
