    Another conference another betting special. I really hate doing this to @Tragosaurus but I love these forum bets :).
    The point system follows the 2017 EZA PGW betting special but we are going against each other.

    We'll be given a short gameplay demo for The Inpatient that will segway into a trailer. The trailer will show various locations from Until Dawn with background vocals from key events from the game. We will then be shown a montage of newspaper clippings going in reverse from the disappearance of Hannah and Beth, through the Arson attempts all the way back until the Mine Collapse. We'll be shown the Sanitorium in it's prime along with the title: Until Dawn: Subject Zero.

  • I like how there was no Sucker Punch speculation. Totally out of left field.



  • Was a new Ready at Dawn, Remedy, or Rocksteady game shown during the week? I assume not.

    Also was there a Detroit demo?

    I believe the first four are no, Detroit, second, no.



  • Axes were a new weapon around 10,000 BCE.



  • @Tragosaurus you are correct



  • In that case the winners are @Sentinel-Beach and @Whiskeyjack

    Not believing in any of the Hot Seat Bet announcements or demo drops was what set them apart. Everyone else wanted to dream a little too much. Full results can be found on the sheet. This makes Sentinel Beach the overall champion of forum bets so far with 3 wins and puts Whiskeyjack on the board. See you all in the PSX betting post!

    So all this time, it was forum bets, my greatest strength. Time to update my resume. Funny how I went "full negative" into the bets and it paid off, and still I feel that the press conference we saw was really good and pretty full of great stuff and surprises.



  • I wanted to believe... Sometimes I'm too soft, and don't calculate these things properly. This is why I don't do so well with these usually. BUT I WANT TO BELIEVE. Congrats to @Sentinel-Beach!

    @Sentinel-Beach Time for a change of career? ;)

    Grats to the winners! I guess Im too hyped for these events to actually bet with my brain



  • conagrats to the winners! sometimes you have to be negative to win, PSX will be my time, i can feel it



  • Everyone is already going 100 negative on PSX presentation.

    They mention that only Early Bird ticket holders get in and it's at 8pm on Friday and everyone online assumes that means nothing announced, no streaming coverage, and no point in going to psx at all.

    I'm gonna be there, and I'm gonna have fun, dammit!



  • @TokyoSlim Amen!



  • @TokyoSlim Where does it say no streaming coverage? They streamed everything last year, even panels.



  • @ib0show Exactly, It doesn't say anything. People are jumping to conclusions. ALL BAD.

    It says it's an exclusive event for early bird passholders, and that Layden will be presenting to attendees. THAT MEANS NO STREAMING OR COVERAGE /overreact
