So they heard about Poker Night and decided to cash in?
Microsoft Might Be Beta Testing A Live Poker Game
the first rule of the poker beta is: you do not talk about the poker beta.
the second rule of the poker beta is: YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE POKER BETA!
Third rule: anyone yells stop, goes limp, passes out... we collect data.
lol. seriously, that email was intense. im really worried now that if i get in, Sony ninjas will sneak into my room when i go to the kitchen and take pictures or something... and then Microsoft will sue the hell out of me for leaving it running.
My first reaction to all this is thinking it strange to pull a quiz show in favour of online poker. I would think that quiz games have a more universal and broader appeal than playing poker. Plus there are already umpteen competive online poker sites out there, but how many online quiz shows are there?
