1 vs 100 has 200,000 players a day

Quiz service downloaded 2.5m times.

Microsoft has revealed that around 200,000 Europeans are using Xbox Live quiz-game service 1 vs. 100 every day.

Our biggest daily attendance is 215,000, although the US tops that with 230,000. Sounds like the answer to a quiz question.

Together, the UK and Ireland have managed 79,000 simultaneous users. But again, the US wins, with an impressive 114,000 concurrent users.

The 1 vs. 100 client has been downloaded over 2.5 million times since the beginning of the beta. And to celebrate all this, Microsoft has some guests turning up during August.

The Guild creator Felicia Day will show up on 28th August at 7pm PT, which is 2am the following morning for us lot, unhelpfully. And there's an "evening of music" planned for 29th August at midnight our time. All the other events, sadly, are US only.

The 1 vs. 100 service is still in beta here. Created by Big Brother telly-mastermind Endemol, the show puts one person (The One) against 100 (The Mob), and offers Microsoft Points (and real-life prizes, eventually) to people answering questions correctly. But there's plenty more to it than this.
