From the makers of Deal or No Deal, the popular television game show 1 vs. 100 is coming to Xbox Live Primetime, pitting one Xbox Live member against 100 others from around the world with a live host and great prizes. The goal of "the One" is to eliminate all the opposition by correctly answering questions, hoping that the opponents will answer incorrectly and be eliminated from the game. And stay tuned for "1 vs. Live," where one lucky winner will have a chance to compete against the entire Xbox Live community.

1 vs 100 Live on Xbox Live transforms you from spectator to player in this new socially interactive game experience based upon the hit TV game show. Enjoy the fun and freshness of a television show in a massively multiplayer online game. Win real prizes not just for skills but for participation. Have fun playing with your friends and family, or compete with other Live Gold members in a friendly game of 1 vs 100 Live. With live events, real hosts, featured players, and fresh content it's a new experience every time you play.

“1 vs 100” Season 2 will run for 14 weeks and bring you new and exciting features. Get the inside scoop (and a jump start on the questions) by answering the following: Question 1: “1 vs 100” Season 2 will premier on Xbox LIVE:

  • November 19, 2009 at 5:00 pm PT
  • November 24, 2009 at 5:00 pm PT
  • New Years Eve at 5:00 pm PT

Question 2: In “1 vs 100” Season 2, your chances of taking center stage are cooler than ever. During “1 vs 100 Live” shows, “The One” and “The Mob” will be selected based on:

  • Score, speed, accuracy, and number of Achievements you’ve earned.
  • Score, score, score – totals across the Season, the week and the round!
  • How many pigeons you have in your back yard.

The answer to question one is…. A: November 19 at 5:00 pm PT!

The answer to question two is…..B: Score, score, score – totals across the Season, the week and the round!

The higher your score, the higher your chances of being chosen as “The One,” or “The Mob.” Being “the One” is exciting and intense! So, if you’re chosen as “the One” in “1 vs 100” Season 2, Xbox LIVE will automatically change your status to “Busy.” You’ll also enjoy more time in the spotlight – “the One” will strike a pose at the top of the stairs before strolling down to center stage.

Beginning on November 19, “1 vs 100 Extended Play” will feature brand new themed trivia every weeknight including “Finish the Lyrics” (are you a Karaoke champ? What’s the next line in this song?), “80s” (how well do you know the 80s?), and “Vampires” (you love Twilight and True Blood. How much do you really know about vampires?)

We let the Xbox LIVE community speak for itself – on average more than half a million unique contestants competed in “1 vs 100” every single week during the 15 week Beta season of “1 vs 100,” which launched on June 1, 2009. Up to 114,000 people in the US and Canada, and 79,000 people in the UK and Ireland competed simultaneously in “1 vs 100 Live” shows.
