Rumor: Survey reveals potential 1 vs. 100 subscription model

1vs100

1 vs. 100 butters its bread by asking all kinds of oddball trivia questions, and now — fittingly enough — Microsoft’s following suit by riddling gamers this big question: “If 1 vs. 100 were not available as part of your Gold Membership account, how likely would you be to purchase 1 vs. 100 for $15 per season (13 weeks)?”

At least, Microsoft’s behind this caper if an anonymous Joystiq tipster is to be believed. The question in question allegedly came from a survey on MyThoughtCounts.com, though its legitimacy is still suspect.

We’ve sent an email over to Microsoft to find out more. For now, though, this one gets the big, bad rumor tag. Wear it with pride, 1 vs. 100. We don’t use these things lightly.

    Hey Microsoft… charge for it and as far as I’m concerned you can stick it up your arse. Sideways.

    Make gold worth something with things like this, and make the money you want on it using advertising.

    It’s free now and I’ve hardly touched it since the beta launched. You know why? It’s not worth more than that.
