Those looking forward to the second season of 1 vs. 100 should know that it starts in the US tonight at 8:00pm EST.
As previously reported, season two makes it easier to become either the mob or the One by having a great score throughout the season, as well as The One doing a pose while coming down the stairs to center stage.
There’s also unlockable dance moves and new achievements.
Should be fun. We’ll definitely be playing if the queue isn’t too long.
Full PR below the break.
Thanks for the reminder, Joystiq.

Looks like another 1 vs. 100 season is currently in the works.
According to the development team’s blog, looks like more competitions featuring The One are on the way.
This time around, The One will receive a golden notification and have their status so to “Busy” so as not to be distracted by others trying to contact them and the like as they are singled out to answer questions.
The One will also receive a new entrance instead of just appearing on the stage. Instead, just like on the TV show, players’ Avatars will come down the staircase – and will even strike a pose.

Microsoft said this week that Live gameshow 1 vs. 100 was downloaded 3 million times during its 13-week pilot season, with simultaneous connection figures hitting 114,000 in North America and 81,000 in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
General Live sales were up 200 percent thanks to the Summer of Arcade promotion, the firm said.
Shadow Complex and Trials HD both broke records for the most downloads of a single-player game during their respective first weeks on sale, according to MS stats.

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.

A Microsoft job posting has apparently revealed the development of a console game that can support up to 300,000 people simulateously.
The ad, helpfully not linked to by Develop, has called for “an experienced server developer to help develop our server architecture. We are building an extremely high performance system to extend console games to the server in new ways; creating a completely new set of web services to support dynamic programming information of games and scheduling data”.
Requirements for the role include “building a backend capable of hosting a 300,000 player game in real-time with real money on the line (anti-cheating, etc),” the posting says.
It’s probably 1 Vs 100. Full thing through there.
