Game Show Channel Coming To Xbox Live

Illustration for article titled Game Show Channel Coming To Xbox Live

A new social gaming channel is coming to Xbox LIVE, one that looks to be another attempt from Microsoft to target the casual gaming crowd with "programmatic, highly concurrent social interactive games." That's the long way of saying "game shows" as Xbox LIVE versions of Jeopardy! and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? appear to be coming to the "SBG Channel."

Leaked information that pointed to an Avatars system coming to Xbox 360 and games like Lips and Forza Motorsport 3 also dishes details on the SBG Channel. The channel is said to also feature "concepts" in the "Trivia, Reality TV, Puzzles and Sports" genres with live events and plans to feature real-world and virtual prizes.

DISCUSSION

@karasu is my homeboy: Karasu, I am offedned you just calle dme a troll for putting my opinion about these "new" paid services for Microsoft. So, if aomeone says something poorly about Microsoft over here, were trools?

Too bad:

"We get it, you love Sony, hate 360, and cannot discuss anything without using bias and a quick attempt at a witty zinger."

Sadly, this just showed your ignorance as my stance regarding both Sony and Microsoft, wich means you shoudl lurk some morebefore calling me a trool, when youre obviously the one here being one, for I dare you to read any of my posts and show me where I praise Sony (and they treat us European gamers so nice!), Nintendo (you forgot they are also in the running for this gen?) or Microsoft if they do somethign right.

Sadly, this does not seem to be anything new, just a copy of a good solid proven concept that is Buzz. Sorry if I hurt your troll feelings, I used to read your comments with interest, but since you decided to (so, oh so stupidly) judge me, I shall put you in your rightful place: the ignore list.

"(...)You Love Sony(..)" Man, theres about a few dozen people laughin on IRC at you in my country right now... well, I better go turn on my invisible PS3 and give it some love, then.

b ^_^ d Good show.
