    Anytime it will say platinum status over 8, it's talking about worldwide.

    There is no "platinum" status worldwide. When we say "Certified platinum by the RIAA on [date here]", we're talking about the Recording Industry Association of America. 8x platinum is 8 million. Linkin Park have sold 15 million copies of 'Hybrid Theory'.
