Amazing confusion over new 1UP letter-based scoring system

US site 1UP has now switched over to a letter-based review system, a change that's led to some fairly spectacular confusion this morning.

Ed boss Dan Hsu said there wouldn't be a score-to-letter conversion chart published "because we want our readers to go with our new scoring system and not be constantly translating the new letters back to our old scores." Sensible.

Joystiq decided to do one anyway and all hell's broken loose, with 1UP VP Simon Cox getting involved. Check out the comments at the bottom of the story.

Just score out of 10, review sites. Then you don't have to fight teh internets.
