Xbox Live Primetime delayed, Bob Saget will have to wait

5:43 PM on 10.21.2008 // Brad Nicholson

The greatest videogame site ever, Forbes, is reporting that Xbox Live Primetime will not be coming this November with the New Xbox Experience. For those of you that may remember, Primetime is a service that will allow users to compete in online trivia matches to win Microsoft space bucks and other prizes of that nature. Bob Saget was slated to appear with the hit T.V. show 1 vs. 100 upon debut.

The reason for the delay is polish. Apparently, Mr. Saget wasn’t ready for the dashboard stage quite yet. The article cites that the delay (of undeterminable length) could give Microsoft time to bring in different shows. American Gladiators immediately comes to mind as an addition, but it’s already cancelled and taking questions from steroid-ridden “athletes” probably won’t be that much fun.

What do you guys think? Were you looking forward to this portion of the NXE? Would you have even bothered with this if it was included?
