Buzz! goes to Hollywood

The quiz game with the big red buzzers has a new iteration designed especially for movie buffs coming this October.


There has been a music version, a BIG version, and even a junior jungle party version--and now the Buzz! quiz will be going to the movies.

Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz will stay true to the tried-and-tested Buzz! quiz formula, and will once again feature Buzz the host himself (said to be styled on Jason Donovan). Contestants will be able to pick from a huge variety of zany characters, this time from movies. They include cat-stroking Bond villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld and Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe has announced that the new game will feature over 5,000 questions, along with movie clips, pictures, quotes, and sound bites. Question topics will span the movie business--from hardcore movie fan trivia to celebrity gossip. Buzz! The Hollywood Quiz will also feature "new and improved" rounds, including Rollover, Fact or Fiction, and Hollywood Stars.

Up to eight players can play at once, using Buzz! buzzer peripherals. The game will be released for the PlayStation 2 in Europe in October.
