Manuel Bronstein, director of 1 Vs. 100 for Microsoft Studios, describes Game as realization of Microsofts vision for programmatic interactive experiences delivered via XBOX LIVE Primetime. The game was due to be released in November 2008 with the new XBOX Experience update but it was delayed because was rest of planned Primetime content. While fairly simple in visual appearance, Bronstein explained that the game was in development for more than a year because of technical hurdles, noting that making sure hundreds of thousands of people see host and answer questions at exact same time and handling prizes and all things associated with cheating make for interesting technical challenge. Bronstein commented that Microsoft met with producers of popular television game shows American Idol and Survivor before partnering with Endemol and choosing 1 Vs. 100 because of its social elements. Joerg Bachmaier, senior VP of Digital media for Endemol, said we see a replication of Show on another platform. Except now it is more active. Nobody is just sitting back and watching. Microsoft has stated that the first season of the game would be the pilot season. Future seasons were dependent upon the success of Shows ability to generate advertiser revenue. Sprint and Honda each pay around $1 million to become primary sponsors of the first season and Microsoft is trying to sell additional One-off or occasional commercial spots. The Company name EX Machina, delivers technology and services to help run massive multiplayer trivia Quiz application for XBOX LIVE. This includes a special content management system or CMS was created that supported game content such as questions and answers, all require metadata and multimedia items. Base on individual results from each individual players, leaderboards were created in real-time. Open beta was made available to Canadian subscribers with Gold subscription from May 8 through May 24, 2009. Open beta was re-open and extended to subscribers in the USA on June 1 2009. Though it was still in beta, on July 10, Microsoft began awarding actual prizes in North American beta previously players testing the game simply earned entries in sweepstakes. They also confirm that the beta season that commences June 1 will last 13 weeks. The Beta Season for both the US and Canada ends on August 31 2009. The Open beta for the United Kingdom begins on July 10 2009, and both Germany and France begin on July 12 2009. Base on input from the first Season, changes were incorporated into Game for the second Season. Player selected as One was found to receive a plethora of messages when they were playing, and thus, in the second season, One had their online status set to busy, preventing these messages from distracting player. One also enter virtual set in a more dramatic fashion.

Reception

Yahoo Games report they find it very hard to put down controller in play test offer to press and say while it may not necessarily revolutionise primetime entertainment. Give the right kind of publicity, Microsoft could really have a winner on its hands. Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins of Penny Arcade gaming webcomic both commended the game for its authentic game-show atmosphere and its natural-feeling extension of social avatar-base gaming, compared with perceived flaws in Sony's PlayStation Home service. The game was downloaded over 2. 5 million times, and its success has led Microsoft to extend its beta season for two additional weeks. Microsoft claims that the North American version of the game surpassed the Guinness world record for most contestants in a game show with over 114 000 simultaneous players. With the release of Xbox Series X and Series S console line in 2020, Xbox Head Phil Spencer has said there is strong interest in bringing back 1 Vs. 100 given the success of trivia apps like HQ and Microsoft has been looking into how that would work in the current environment.

Delisting

1 vs 100 on Xbox 360 was a Live multiplayer Game Show based on a TV program of the same name. After the beta period and successful first season in 2009, Microsoft greenlit the second season that ended on February 15 2010. In final blog post on July 15 2010, dev team member Trilobiting confirmed the game was finish. In an LA Times article leading up to games first season, Manuel Bronstein, director of 1 vs 100, revealed some of the revenue structure behind Game. While plans were to charge players for Game Microsoft eventually decided to rely solely on advertising sponsors for income. For the first season, both Honda and Sprint pay around $1 million each for branding in the game's 3D environment and frequent commercial spots between gameplay. The format of the game allows for only 7-8 minutes of commercials in a 2-hour episode. In comparison to network television at time, an entire 13-week season of 1 vs 100 would be far less profitable than a single hour of network programming. Lack of advertiser interest and cost of managing games ' unique server infrastructure most likely result in its cancellation after season two despite its increasing popularity. Two years later, Microsoft would try another ad-base game, Karaoke, that also ended after a short, unprofitable run.
