Is this going Live in the UK tonight? I vaguely remember reading something suggesting so, but for the life of me, can't remember where I saw it...

Live as in no longer in beta you mean? I've been playing it on and off this week and while it's pretty cool for a free gameshow, and would no doubt be a lot of fun with mates, it doesn't explain things very well.

Where does the 1 part of the 1 vs 100 come into it? What's all this mob shit? Why are there people who somehow manage to answer every single fucking question correctly, even when every now and then you get a very specific and esoteric one that you have to fluke to know?

I've not played a live show yet, just the extended shows. The questions are far too hard, the majority of people are getting them wrong. That's not the way it should be imo. And no, the UK is still in beta, although on the live shows this week, you actually have a chance to win real prizes, which is quite nice. Silver users can join in, as well.

I've totally ignored this and I'm lazy and work stops me googling games sites..but can more than one person play at a time on the same console?

I think I've totally missed the boat with this one.

Looks like a pub quiz type thing. Never seen the proggy it's based on so what's the deal, summarised?

101 people are chosen. 1 person is chosen to be The One (duh), and the other 100 are part of The Mob.

A question is asked, if The One gets it right, their prize increases for each of The Mob that are eliminated by getting the answer wrong. Process repeats until The One gets the question wrong, or decides to take the prize as it currently stands.

If The One gets the question wrong, then The Mob shares the prize.

Wow, that actually sounds a lot better than I imagined it would.

Is that what happens ? At that point I thought one of The Mob who got the question right is selected at random to become The One, and it keeps going until all of The Mob are eliminated, leaving The One.

I think that's what happens in the TV show, but it would seem a brand new Mob is chosen each time on the XBL version.

Any surviving Mob members once the One stuffs up gets some booty anyway, it can be quite a sizeable amount of points plus an XBLA title (it's been Braid every time I've played) so making one of them One would be a bit unfair on everyone else.

They're probably still in with a chance of being the One at some point too.

Yeah, you can only be the One once a season (not that I know how long each season lasts, but whatever), but I'm pretty sure you can be in the Mob every time, so it's an incentive for those who have already been the one to keep playing.

You can be in the Mob once per live episode.

If you already have the arcade title on offer, do you know if that gets you a refund? or is it just tough luck?

It's tough luck. Give the code to a mate or something.

Oh on that note, the prizes don't just appear in your account. Apparently they send you a code via email. Can take up to 28 days (or something like that).
