Is 1 vs 100 becoming a total failure?

Burn360: Earlier in the year we had a sneak peek at the Beta for 1 vs. 100. The concept was fun. Get together with your friends and play a live action game show from the comfort of your living room. This was a fun time when I thought I was eligible for prizes but when the rumors where squashed that no MS points were to be won, the nightly 1v100 sessions came to a halt fairly quickly. During this time we noticed that Microsoft was doing an excellent job of promoting the game through a reminder system when a game time was approaching on any given session I would check to see how many of my Live friends would be playing in a live session of 1 vs. 100 and the numbers were fairly staggering between all of our xbox live accounts roughly 20% would be playing the game, now this was during the beta, and with the new season starting back up we were interested to see if this would have carried over into the real live season out of the beta. With prizes thrown into the mix it seems like a shoe-in right?
If you use Twitter you may have noticed that your Major Nelson sent 20 twitter messages urging his followers to hop on and play tonight with tweets about the 1 vs. 100. While this is....

So because Major Nelson was promoting 1vs100 it must be in trouble? WTF kind of logic is this? This article is total sh*t. Wow. Ive played 1vs100 from time to time and there were about 30,000 or more online. What a terrible excuse for an article.

From the guy who left it on the site or was that u?

Either way, crap like this always gets approved, though I do find the reactions people have to be pretty funny.

^That's the longest sentence I've ever seen

Xeoset2434d ago

Anyone can write sh!t about gaming nowadays and have it published. Bedroom journos ftl.

Arsenic132434d ago

That was me Alpha. No use writing it again. Hail copy paste.

RockmanII72434d ago

Yes, all hail Copy and Paste

1 v 100 owns and its free. I'm a level 17 in that, whoooo.

Anon19742434d ago

If it's available to Silver's, I'd like to give this a try.

Hutch23552434d ago

I was on the other night at 10pm and the extended play had over 19000 people playing it, not bad for a weekday at 10pm I haven't been on the actuall 1vs100 since it came out of beta, but it is extrememly fun, but I have a feeling there is some cheating going on. I played 2 straight sessions and the same guy won both and never missed a question with an avg anwnser time under 1 second, now I am not saying I am the smartest guy in the world although I do pretty good with trivia games, but come on, get on jeapordy or something if you are that flippin good, my god.

darthv722434d ago

I like the extended play games myself. I like how now you can earn achievements where as in the first run you didnt.

I can think of dozens of good questions for the show. They need to think up more shows for the primetime than just 1v100.

Silver users deserve some love sometimes too!

How do articles like this get accepted?

I play 1vs100 on occasion and it is great fun. There was about 50,000 people on when I played and I remember one night it was so popular it crashed. It is actually a hit. People call in on the live shows and you hear people of all walks of life and genders. Not to mention it is free and has achievements.

-Alpha2434d ago

Or people generally approve things without checking the source.

I'm more inclined to believe the former.

"How do articles like this get accepted?"

10 people who like PS3 and hate xbox approves it.

*Bad PS3 article*
"The 360 fanboys did it

*Bad 360 article*

You girls are funny, how about both sides stop approving sh7t articles

*on topic* The article is very poorly written and I have a couple friends that love 1vs100 so let those who enjoy it, enjoy it. Doesn't make it a failure if people use it.

Perjoss2434d ago

incase you never have read the rules of posting news on n4g, it says that news is news, be it good or bad.

RockmanII72434d ago

By bad they mean things that could upset people (Increase in the price of a game / game delayed), not inaccurate speculation.

-Alpha2434d ago

Come on, there are rabid fanboys on this site that will approve anything that feeds their fanboyism.

It's not hard to believe that when something as poorly speculated (as Baseball said) gets approved, you'd have to wonder if people simply read the title and they LIKE what they read, or if they simply go about randomly approving anything they want.

I don't think people who approve chose to approve an article like this because they thought it was important, but it's clear that the article points out something negative about the 360. People who approve important articles would at least have the decency to check the source.

n4gno2434d ago

Don't change the rules "the max speed", gamers who like ps3 don't care about xbox, they can buy one since day one if they want (only some ms fans are like that since 2006, because they can't buy a ps3)

LOL. What a sorry excuse for an article. MN is the Xbox Live community manger, it is his job to promote stuff. So the new season start, don't you want people to know about it using all mediums.

inSaneELF2434d ago

What the hell? Why WOULDN'T Major Nelson promote 1vs100?

xaviertooth2434d ago

what do you expect from the 360 when by itself it's a total failure... not just failure but a failure of all time magnitude.

TheXgamerLive2434d ago

1 vs 100 is hella fun, I play as often as I can, I love it and millions more do as well.
