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.

PS3 - 89 - 49 Reviews

Basically: The 360 version will be used. It is ridiculous how selective Metacritic are.

Really interested in seeing how playstation all stars will be received. I think it will either do really well or it will be totally torn apart by reviewers and compared to super smash brothers non stop and hugely criticised. What does anyone else think?

And most of the work is done now because I "programmed" all the tables so that all I have to do is change the metascore and then everything updates by itself!

Can't wait for the results. Thanks for doing these threads.
