Microsoft Might Be Beta Testing A Live Poker Game
by Brad Nicholson on
A "highly confidential" email is leaked, and 1 Vs. 100's possible replacement is revealed.
Interestingly, it appears as if Texas Heat is just one scheduled show under an umbrella called "Full House Poker." However, it's also the only game for Full House Poker mentioned in this alleged email.
Sadly, information about Texas Heat and Full House Poker stops at "live" show. Microsoft doesn't even make it clear that Texas Heat will feature the often-televised and much more popular variant of standard poker, Texas Hold 'Em, though its inclusion is implied by the name alone.
With 1 Vs. 100 gone, I'd prefer The Weakest Link Live, but a poker game will do nicely too. Assuming that Texas Heat will be very similar to the first (and so far only) Primetime title, would you be willing to participate? Or are the ads, the odd transitions, and the structure too much for you?
