# Game Sales Calculator

The game sales calculator is designed to help developers, publishers, and marketers quickly estimate total revenue generated from game sales. By entering the number of copies sold and the price per game, this tool calculates the total sales revenue, which is crucial for understanding the financial performance of a game.

### Formula

The formula for calculating game sales revenue is straightforward:

Game Sales (GS) = Game Copies Sold (GCS) × Price Per Game (PPG)

This formula simply multiplies the number of copies sold by the price per unit, giving you the total revenue generated.

### How to Use

- Enter the number of game copies sold in the input field.
- Enter the price per game in USD.

- The result will display the total revenue in USD.

### Example

Suppose a game developer sells 50,000 copies of their game, and each copy is priced at $19.99. Using the formula:

Game Sales = 50,000 × 19.99 = $999,500

The total game sales revenue would be $999,500.
