SCEA Announces More Buzz! Games for the PSP and PS2
It beats paying for $80 maracas.
Buzz!, if you haven't heard of it, is a kind of base interactive quiz show that utilizes a buzzer peripheral as its main selling point. SCEA has announced plans for three more games in the series, which include Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz, Buzz! Jr. Robojam, and a re-make of the original Buzz!. The Hollywood Quiz is a variation that primarily features Hollywood and celebrity-based trivia, while Robojam will take a detour from series conventions by shifting the gameplay focus to feature custom robots and mini-games instead of trivia.
The original was generous enough to include four buzzer controllers and these new spin-offs will do the same, which is good, since you feel pretty stupid sitting there buzzing in on your own. If you've already got the controllers, though, or you're just feeling really cheap, a stand-alone version of the game will also be available.
All three Buzz! games will be released on March 11.
