1 vs. 100 Beta Scheduled For UK Release
by Jeff Gerstmann on
More regions are brought into the Xbox Live Primetime fold as the beta starts to spread.
First it was for Canadians. Then they let the US of A in on the act. And starting July 10, Xbox Live Gold members in the UK, the Republic of Ireland, France, and Germany will be able to get in on the act. Microsoft has announced plans for the next stage of the 1 vs. 100 beta.
The online game show has proven to be pretty popular around the office, and I think Ryan is slowly trying to become the live show's host, Chris Cashman. We'll keep you posted on that one.
The available information from Microsoft makes it sound like prizes will be given out during this phase of the beta. Specifically, MP3 players, digital cameras, phones, laptops, and HDTVs. Additionally, UK players will be able to win travel packages and a car. German and French players will have a chance to win a car via some kind of sweepstakes.
Hmm... I wonder if the UK/Europe show will be dramatically different from the one we've been getting here. The Canadian beta was full of plenty of Canada-specific questions. Maybe I should try to play in the UK edition and see if they ask a lot of questions about... the Eastenders or whatever the heck is all pop culturey out there these days.
