Hey all you BUZZ! fans – the big day is tomorrow! We officially launch BUZZ! Quiz TV for PS3 and BUZZ! Master Quiz for PSP in North America. Hopefully you have been enjoying creating quizzes on the MyBUZZ Web site (looks like you’ve all been busy!) and by now, I’m sure you’ve all read the previews and are aware of all the cool stuff that’s to come with the games, but here’s a brief recap.
BUZZ! Quiz TV for PS3
- New wireless buzzers and the ability to play with up to eight friends and family members!
- Online play with “Sofa vs. Sofa” – challenge up to three other living rooms anywhere within the United States or Canada!
- Over 5,000 questions on five different channels – music, movies & TV, sports, brainiac and lifestyle. There’s also a Channel Hopper mode that combines all of these genres.
- All-new characters and round types and a brand spanking new studio in high-def.
- Downloadable quiz packs on the PLAYSTATION Network, each containing over 500 questions. The first packs available on Thursday, September 25 are Videogames, Sci-Fi and National Geographic: Safari.

But wait – that’s not all! As soon as the game launches, you’ll also have access to the first update which contains:

Hopefully, you are as excited as we are to finally be able to get your “BUZZ” on. We’re already seeing a great response from those lucky enough to get an early copy of the game and now we’re looking forward to playing against other BUZZ! fans in “Sofa vs. Sofa.” And don’t forget, we’ll be awarding a prize to the “All Time Top Author” tomorrow and another one to the “Top Quiz” author a week after launch on September 30. So, keep those quizzes coming!
*BUZZ! Quiz TV comes packed with 4 buzzers, but one will need an additional set to allow 8 players.
