You've enjoyed the television show, and comes to console gaming for the second time.
Have you ever watched the show on ABC in the United States?
When you fire up the PSOne console, the Sony Computer Entertainment America logo first, and then PlayStation logo appears, and that sequence is followed by, at the start of the game, you will see "Sony Computer Entertainment America Presents" and you enjoy the spectacular prologue at the beginning, and you'll hear Regis say "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" The main menu shows this question, "How many people are playing?" A second controller is required for the Fastest Finger contest, but you need only one to play the game show.
Regis walks you through how to play the game first, then you're presented a question and four answers, with buttons on the game controller designated for answers. Like the actual show, the game is over when you get a wrong answer one time, and you may use all of your lifelines on one question if you'd like, but, remember, there are no more lifelines for the rest of the game. Regis tells you to use your lifelines carefully, because there are only three of them in the game. Unlike the game show, you can reattempt your climb to $1,000,000.00. There are fifteen questions, and, once you use up your lifelines, you may walk away and take home the money earned. The three milestone questions are worth $1,000.00, $32,000, and $1,000,000. You have tuned into ABC from 2000-2001 when Regis Philbin hosted Millionaire, and noticed how the real-life version played.
