    I though 13 times platinum would be 13 million, not 1.3 million, is it different between live dvds and studio albums?

    The aticle says 'sales in excess of 1.3 million copies in the U.S. alone'. That's just what was sold in the U.S., not counting what was sold in other countries - which I imagine was 11.7 million or so.

    Though it says 'for sales in excess of 1.3 million copies in the U.S. alone.' Which indicates that it was those sales they've counted

    Yeah,the certifications for DVDs and CDs differ as DVDs will sell much lower than CDs will. Certifications and the amounts of sales that represent them also differ from country to country.

    Zeppelins officialy released live performances generaly are the best ones. Only handful bands sounded/performed/looked like they did. And to those who complained about TSRTS-you have remember it was mixed/cut 40 years ago.
