I'm going to hazard a guess and say that 'VideoGamePlatformIdentifier' 
comes into relevance when yes, either cataloging a game or a piece of 
music that originated in a video game. In which case, I would believe 
the value would be from a controlled value list of strings ("Sega 
Genesis"), or else a URI like http://id.worldcat.org/fast/1111199 

Although, this could all be incorrect :)
