London, 29th September: Buzz!™: Quiz TV Special Edition from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe is the perfect gift for quiz fans and their families this Christmas. This boxed collector’s edition of the brilliant interactive game-show for PLAYSTATION®3 (PS3™) features 1000 extra questions, including both a bonus 500-question Videogames Quiz and a quiz on African wildlife, set by the experts at National Geographic™ and packed with their world famous photos and video clips.

In addition to the new questions, the Special Edition disc also includes loads of game extras and features previously only available via PLAYSTATION®Network (PSN). These include four extra characters and ten cheeky new buzzer noises, as well as in-game trophies to reward top quizzers plus the new Quickstart mode, which cuts out set-up time and gets you straight into the game. Buzz!™: Quiz TV Special Edition also offers PLAYSTATION®Eye compatibility, which means that the hilarious ‘Buzz! faces’ contestants pull at moments of tension and celebration can be broadcast in-game or shared with the world. This great new version of the top-selling Buzz!: Quiz TV comes in a gold-embossed collector’s box, to house your wireless buzzers and games collection in style, and will hit shelves in early November.

Buzz!: Quiz TV, first launched in July 2008, is the hugely successful PS3™ title that turns your living room into a glitzy, glamorous and hilarious gameshow. It comes with over 5000 questions straight from the Blu-ray Disc (and more than 6000 questions in the Special Edition), letting you quiz across five category channels: Music, Movies and TV, Sports, Knowledge and Lifestyle. The game also comes with four all-new wireless buzzers that free Buzz! from cables, streamline the quiz experience and keep your living room clutter-free.

Thousands of additional questions are available to download from the game’s creators via PSN – there are quizzes on everything from national culture to sci-fi movies and rock bands. On top of this, quiz fans can create their own personalized quizzes, play them in-game and share them with players across the world via the PC-accessible MyBuzz site at www.MyBuzzQuiz.com. Finally, players can team up with friends and family and take on groups of like-minded players across the planet, taking part in Sofa vs. Sofa multiplayer-gaming after logging on to PSN. Buzz!: Quiz TV will determine not only the smartest on your own sofa, but also pinpoint the most knowledgeable living rooms in the world.

Since its launch in July, the game has proved hugely popular – as have the quizzes written by users and uploaded to MyBuzzQuiz.com. With over half a million user-written questions already available, more than 3.5 million MyBuzz! Quizzes have been downloaded so far, with daily downloads recently hitting the 100,000 mark.

In buying the Buzz!: Quiz – TV Special Edition, you’re not just getting an amazing game with loads of extra content and a premium box – you’re joining an international community of quiz fans in which the questions never stop coming. If you haven’t already got your hands on Buzz!: Quiz TV, the Special Edition is the perfect opportunity. It’s arriving on shelves across PAL markets in early November.

    So this is a re-release of the original with some extra stuff? I thought the whole “networked-up” approach was so that they didn’t have to release multiple SKUs?

    The problem with living in Scandinavia is, is that it doesn’t warrant its own version of these games. So although I know the missus etc. would really enjoy it, the question would be veru UK TV-centric and thus not be worth it.

    So, since the basic one is coming out today in the US, we shouldn’t buy it after all, we should wait?!?!
