Sony Computer Entertainment America today announced that BUZZ! Quiz World is now available exclusively for PlayStation 3.
Developed by Relentless Software, BUZZ! Quiz World lets players choose the round types, the question topics, and the game length. There's also an all-new custom profile feature, making the game commentary from the host, Buzz, personalized to the player. In addition to hundreds of options for player names, contestants can now take on opponents in the form of a variety of new characters including a general, a nurse, and a knight.
BUZZ! Quiz World also features more than 5,000 new questions with hundreds of pictures, videos, and music clips; extended 8-player multiplayer "Sofa vs. Sofa" action with voice chat; and new rounds and characters in a new TV-studio setting.
Gameplay customization gives players the ability to tailor their games to their liking through several options. In "Round Select" mode, players can choose which rounds they play back-to-back, while players who want to get quizzing immediately can select from "Standard," "Crazy," or "Serious" pre-set game types. New round types inclue "Over the Edge" —which involves a pit of goo awaiting those who answer questions incorrectly — and "On the Spot" designed to catch other players off guard. BUZZ! Quiz World also lets players select short, 15-minute games or choose a 45-minute long competition.
In addition to the eight-player local multiplayer quizzing, now up to eight players of BUZZ! Quiz World can also go online and play "Sofa vs. Sofa" mode. Lastly, through PlayStation Eye support, players everywhere can take pictures during the game at key moments to relive exiting victories.
