News – 1 vs. 100 is no more

Microsoft’s excellent 1 vs. 100 will sadly not be returning for a third season on Xbox Live. The game was a revolution as far as massively multiplayer online games go and allowed The One (randomly selected based on background stats) to win physical prizes (cars, TV’s and holidays amongst them) and Microsoft Points, whilst those in The Mob could win Xbox Live Arcade games and Microsoft Points also. For me (and many others) this is a really sad day, although the team behind 1 vs. 100 are apparently going to apply what they have learned for future programming. Microsoft haven’t said the reasons for its axing.

I certainly had a lot of fun, both as a player as well as a spectator, so I’m really saddened by this news.

RIP 1 vs. 100.
