U.S. MyBUZZ Launches – Prize Opportunities!

Jenny Barbour's Avatar + Posted by Jenny Barbour on Sep 12, 2008 // Associate Producer

Hey Everyone – We’re just a couple of weeks out from the launch of BUZZ! Quiz TV for PS3 here in the United States, but today we’re excited to announce that MyBUZZ for the U.S. is now live. For those of you who aren’t aware of what’s to come in BUZZ! Quiz TV, you will be able to create your own personalized quizzes on MyBUZZquiz.com and then play them online or in-game. This is your chance to stump your friends with your vast array of knowledge or test your family or significant others on how well they know you!

MyBUZZ! Main Page

Quizzes consist of eight questions that you create, including the right and wrong answers. You can also link quizzes in a playlist to create a never-ending challenge on a particular topic. Choose to keep your quizzes private, share them with your PSN friends, or open them up for all to enjoy.

Personalized quizzes are a great form of entertainment, whether you’re flying solo or hosting a gathering. Start building content on the MyBUZZ site now using your PSN ID and when the game launches on September 23, you’ll be able to play all of your quizzes in the BUZZ! environment on the PS3 system.

MyBuzz quiz

MyBUZZ also includes some great community features. You have the ability to rate quizzes, leave comments for the Author, and search for quizzes by rating, date or subject. You can even add quizzes to your favorites list. In addition to “Top Quizzes” listed by “Most Popular” and “Most Recent”, you can also look up the “Top Author” listed by “This Week” and “All Time”.

And it is with this that we announce a little challenge for all of you trivia gurus out there. We’re asking you to start building your library of quizzes immediately and on game launch day (September 23), we’ll award a PS3 and BUZZ! Quiz TV game bundle to the “All Time Top Author.” A week after launch on September 30, we’ll be awarding another prize to the individual with the “Top Quiz.” He/she will receive a new PSP 3000 with BUZZ! Master Quiz (all the fun of the BUZZ! trivia franchise on-the-go!). So, get out there and start creating and rating quizzes – good luck!

And now for the requisite legalese:

Jenny, is the patch online for U.S. users yet that Europe just got (the one with trophies and new characters)? Those of us who won the game at PAX from you would like to check it out. Also what’s the deal with the Bomb round, it seems random as to when the bomb explodes? Love the game though, even my wife likes it and she usually hates trivia games.

With this game coming out, I wonder why you even made Jeopardy. Buzz for PS2 was fun with friends so I’m looking forward to this. The Create A Quiz feature will be fun times my household.

Thanks for the post Jenny.

I’ve been waiting for Buzz.

+ GGCAN on September 12th, 2008 at 10:13 am said:

Jenny, question.

Is that contest you mention for US residents only or are Canadians allowed as well ?

I think that feature you mentioned about creating our own questions is absolutely brilliant.

I liked Jeopardy, but the questions come up again…think Jeopardy will do well if they have add-ons for more questions. (Some like the Triva card game did a few years back).

Thanks again.

I’ve just created 3 quizes! Hope you like them.

One is LOST super easy quiz, another is Jurassic Park Super Quiz and the other one is called Tom Cruise characters.

I’ll be creating more later.

You mean “North America”, not U.S.

+ TouchyEd on September 12th, 2008 at 12:40 pm said:

I was certainly nervous about this game until I checked out some gameplay videos over at IGN. This baby looks really frickin’ cool — with a sly sense of humour that will really improve the experience. They made all the characters really goofy, but still really fun to watch (and listen to).

I encourage you to check out the videos yourself. I really can’t wait for this game (it’ll be a blast at parties).

I love Buzz on the PS2 and am going to buy Buzz for the PS3 for sure. I have been waiting for the North American release for awhile and am looking forward to racking up the trophies.

One question though is the Quiz features avaliable to Canadian residents? Also thanks for supporting the game.

+ Madman on September 12th, 2008 at 2:40 pm said:

If I create quizzes now, will the game automatically detect them and reward the appropriate trophies for creating MyBuzz! quizzes?


27

+ Nymo on September 12th, 2008 at 2:52 pm said:

yay! I’ve always looked forward to Buzz! Quiz TV, and the MyBuzz! features, and now one of them is here!

I love how the overall system has the sort of YouTube quality to it (down to the playlists), and I suspect that it’ll be quite popular as well, along with seeing some MyBuzz! stars too, I suppose…

Can’t wait for the release, and good luck everyone!
