Same rules as the GOW thread. Give a high, medium, and low prediction.

IE you expect it to get a 95 so you set that as your middle. Then you set 97 as your high because you don't think the game has a good chance of scoring above that. Then you set 88 as your low because you don't expect the game to score lower than that.

RESULTS WILL NOW BE SCORED SO THAT AN OVERALL WINNER CAN BE DETERMINED AT THE END OF THE YEAR. IF YOU HAVE THE CLOSEST PREDICTION, YOU EARN POINTS: SCORE +=100-(high prediction-low prediction)*2. IF THE FINAL MC FALLS OUTSIDE YOUR HIGH AND LOW PREDICTIONS, YOU LOSE POINTS: SCORE -=50.

Review embargo ends when the countdown ends. Feel free to post predictions and edit them up till that time.

I know this is months away yet, but preorders just opened, and the game has gotten a lot of criticism due to the lack of a free upgrade option, or even a paid one.

This Forbes article is just dishonest. 
Sony Explicitly Said A PS5 ‘Horizon Forbidden West’ Upgrade Would Be Free

I do wonder if it'll cause a change though.

ps5 games are $70.  horizon is cross-gen.  The alternative to a paid upgrade is that the ps4 game just flat out cost $70 instead of $60.  

if anything that will be the change so complainers should really stfu or what they'll get is a "free upgrade" by only having access to the ps5 pricing model.

I think a lot of people would be fine with a paid upgrade, but Horizon doesn't even offer that.  

If you want to upgrade from PS4 -> PS5, you need to either get the $80 Deluxe Edition or one of the pricier ones.  Or buy out the two games outright.

great, except when a title doesn't support smart delivery (aka every 3rd party game) at which point you're upgrade path is even worse than on playstation.   ...buy the game a second time at full price.

if you are reading the same resetera thread i am most or saying this is sooo confusing the the customer and dishonest and anti-consumer.   

i went to the horizon pre-order page.   the versions very clearly call out what you are buying.

you don't have to like it but the current criticism is grounded in BS.    this is absolutely no different than what movies have been doing.

dvd: $20
blu ray: $30
dvd + blu ray + digital code: $40
