Thank you, Walter.

I'm adding all new codes to my file, little by little. I posted a massive update last year, but, if you keep finding so much stuff, I may do another update sooner than I was thinking. 8-)

In the last two weeks Queen's singles have obtained two more certifications in Italy. Just a foreword: before 2015, Gold needed 15,000 copies sold, while Platinum 30,000. Now Gold needs 25,000 and Platinum 50,000, both including the streaming sales.

Another One Bites The Dust by Queen vs. The Miami Project (2017) is Platinum for over 50,000 downloads.
We Will Rock You (2017) is Platinum for over 50,000 downloads.
Don't Stop Me Now (2016) is Platinum for over 50,000 downloads.
Under Pressure (2015) is Gold for over 25,000 downloads.
Bohemian Rhapsody (2014) is Platinum for over 30,000 downloads. It might be close to the second Platinum, that is to say for 100,000 downloads using the new criteria.
The Show Must Go On (2014) is Gold for over 15,000 downloads.
Somebody To Love (2014) is Gold for over 15,000 downloads.
We Are The Champions (???) is Gold for over 15,000 downloads.

@Hernán: you're welcome! Glad I could help.

Here are four new ones ;-)

A Day At The Races (1993 remaster)
AF8000

Greatest Hits
AK2500

Live Magic
AH1000

The Miracle
AA500

Do you happen to know more about the Brazil releases? I mean, you wrote that Brazil started using codes from June 2003. That means that the 1993/1994 remasters with a salescode were pressed after June 2003. Do you know a release date or release year for those albums? Of course those albums also exist without a sales code, thus are from 1993/1994.

As far as I know the first Brazil cd releases were in 1988/1989, right?
Greatest Hits (1988) (368 prefix)
A Night At The Opera (1989) (368 prefix)
A Day At The Races (1989) (368 prefix)
News Of The World (1989) (368 prefix)
The Game (1989) (368 prefix)

Generally speaking: there seem to be a lot of different distributors/production plants for cds and dvds as there is a huge variation in back covers to be found: with or without barcode, "Distribuido por Videolar", "Distribuido por Sonopress", "Produzido na Zona Franca de Manaus" etc.

@Loris1985: Great numbers!
