One of the best features of Xbox Live was the 1 vs 100 game show. It was great to have the possibility to win prizes. Unfortunately, the Gamescoreblog has announced that 1 vs 100 won’t make it to a third season.
After two successful seasons, “1 vs 100” on Xbox LIVE will not be returning for Season 3.
This pioneering show which combined the best of TV experiences and interactive video games was a ground-breaking pilot in an entertainment genre that will continue to grow and evolve. During the Beta season, more than 114,000 people played “1 vs 100” on Xbox LIVE simultaneously, setting an official Guinness world record for the most contestants in a game show.
“When we started on this journey, we knew we were creating an entirely new genre of entertainment that would be a continually evolving concept,” said Dave McCarthy, General Manager, Microsoft Game Studios. “We’re very proud of the ‘1 vs 100’ team and their accomplishments, and are excited to apply what we’ve learned to future programming.”
The “1 vs 100” team is now focusing their skills and applying the technology used to develop “1 vs 100” to new projects that will be unveiled in the future.
Hopefully we’ll see what those new projects are soon. It’s too bad that we won’t get another season though.
