And just like the show of the same name with Bob Saget, 1 vs. 100 will not be coming back. The game was available for two seasons to play but there are no plans for a third.

I don't know how Microsoft can call it having two successful seasons. If it was successful, then it would be back wouldn't it? They said about 114,000 people played it during the Beta season, but what about the season after? I'm happy they tried this experiment just to see how well it worked and hopefully gather some data needed for future projects.

Did anyone play the game and did anyone win anything from it?


“1 vs 100” on Xbox LIVE Takes A Bow After Two Seasons

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.
