In an interview with Stevivor, Phil Spencer has hinted at the return of game shows to Xbox. 1 versus 100 was a Xbox Live game during the Xbox 360 days. Phil Spencer had the following to say:
“We should do it again. The problem with 1 vs 100 specifically is it’s an IP that’s owned by a a game show company. But I’ll say Matt (Booty, ed.) and I have had a lot of discussions about the idea, whether it’s that IP specifically or just the idea of what it was, is something that we’d love to go do,” Spencer continued. “So we’re out there kind of looking at ideas and talking to teams. Because I think that was one of those ideas — and it’s a cliche, almost — that might’ve been a little ahead of its time.”
Further on in the interview Spencer hints at the possibilities with integrating the game into Mixer.
It’ll be interesting to see how a Xbox Game Show would work in todays world. We’ve seen Jackbox do their Party Pack games and the mobile space is filled with trivia games. Let’s hope this comes to fruition. You can read the full interview over at Stevivor.
