looks like MS is shifting the team to a new project.

That's too bad. I had some good times with that game. Lets hope whatever they do next is even more exciting.

I wonder how bad the numbers had to be for them to pull the plug... Any word on if the game itself will cont in re-runs with no new content/prizes, or is it going away all together?  Btw, has anyone seen the terrible tv version? caught a re-run a few nights ago on latenight.... wow was it bad

Yeah, I'm actually pretty pissed.  I participated both seasons and it was fun to play with family and friends who weren't game savvy, or just to play while laying down and not having to focus a whole lot.  What a stupid decision on Microsoft's part.

I never played it because I didn't really like the show, but the idea of a live video game gameshow was an interesting.

The game was pretty damn good for the little time that I got to play because my console red ringed. Every time I played there were thousand others that played. I can't see why they would get rid of this. Typical Microsoft, never sticks with anything.

I wonder if the license ran out or something, and MS didn't want to renegotiate. Maybe the team is working on a new gameshow that MS will own the IP of.

The license didn't run out. We can't say what they're doing until this new thing comes out. In a way I'm kinda pissed.

That's disappointing but not surprising.  I played quite a bit during both seasons and enjoyed the improvements they made from beta to season 1, but noticed the attendance dropped considerably by the end of season 1.  Still I had a lot of fun with it when playing with friends (I even won a copy of Carcassone and some points when I got into the mob), and it was one of the few games I could play with my wife (other than the Lego games or the occasional split screen on L4D).  The live game show concept is great and I hope they come out with something similar.

That really does suck. The only reason I wanted a 360 was because of that game. Big Bummer.

Sad now. I went ahead and edited the wiki with past tense.

It was fun while it lasted. At least I got into the mob during prime time.

That's a shame. I enjoyed playing now and then, seemed like a neat idea.

Add me to the disappointed list. I'd really been looking forward to Season 3. =(

It was a good idea that never had much follow through.  Microsoft needed to get Velocitygirl on the project to keep it fresh.

I oddly enough did actually delete it off my hard drive two days ago to make space... but did enjoy the game. Shame.

This is actually kind of tragic. It was a crucial part of my friday nights last summer.

Looks like they are just canning the game, I can't imagine they won't take those ideas and build it into a different project. Wasn't too shocked or upset, though, but I wouldn't have minded trying to grind out whatever achievements I had left to get in that game.

What a shame, I was hoping that if it garnered enough success a version would be developed for Australia.

Not surprised, it was kinda useless. I didn't have much fun playing it.

This was a lot of fun. Big fail by Microsoft. My fiancee and I were really looking forward to another season.

I liked the Quick Look of it, although I never did play the game. Seemed like a good format for a 'MMO-quiz', but I can understand the format wearing out by now. Hope the team come up with something else good.

That kinda sucked, I had a good time with 1 vs. 100. Microsoft's 'Prime Time' project has ended up being nothing like they said it would be though. I wonder if whatever Microsoft has planned next will be free.

Loved playing the game with my friends every weekend, really bummer they let it go.  The competing of scores was a lot of fun and i think 1vs100 was the best use of avatars to date.  It was all just a fun time, and as someone who logged a lot of time in it, i'm sad to see it go =(
