How are points are attributed?
For correctly guessing the metascore of a game, you get 3 points. For being one mark out (I.E you predict Halo 4 a 92 or a 90, and it scores 91) you get 2 points. For being 2 marks out (I.E you predict Assassin's Creed III 91 or a 87 and it scores 89, you get 1 point.
When are points getting attributed?
I will update this thread a couple of times a week or more often around times where many reviews are coming in.
How does it work for multiplatform titles?
The scores used for multiplatform titles will be the version with the most reviews, however if the highest scoring SKU is within 10 reviews of the most reviewed version, that score will be used.

Xbox 360 - 89 - 68 Reviews
PS3 - 89 - 49 Reviews
PC - 90 - 53 Reviews
Xbox 360 - 71 - 72 Reviews
PS3 - 71 - 37 Reviews
PC - 80 - 24 Reviews

Looks like you put a lot of work in this thread , good job !!!
