Online community quiz show Xbox Live Primetime will both be delayed until the spring, as Microsoft concentrates on introducing the New Xbox Experience dashboard update this November. First announced at Microsoft’s pre-E3 media briefing in July, Xbox Live Primetime is being produced in conjunction with television production house Endemol. The company behind programs such as Big Brother, Deal or No Deal, 1 vs 100 and Fear Factor is working with Microsoft on a series of games that are to feature real-world prizes and live moderation. The service was originally intended to launch in the U.S. alongside the other new features of the New Xbox Experience, currently schedule for November 19th. According to a Forbes report which reveals the delay, the first show to debut is to be 1 vs. 100, although few details of the service have been available since its announcement earlier in the year. Primetime will not be the first promised feature to be delayed by the implementation of the new dashboard -- with the ability for users to watch streaming Netflix movies together in different locations also recently being sidelined.
