  • Buzz in on 1000 tunes and 5000 questions

E3, LOS ANGELES, 17 May 2005 - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) today introduces to the world of PlayStation®2 a new concept in gaming - the 'Virtual game show'. Hosted by the super-stylish, super-smooth man with the questions Buzz - 'Buzz!TM: The Music Quiz' is the game that puts you under the studio lights and in the hot-seat. Choose your character, grab hold of your buzzer and get ready for a walk through the very best in 50 years of music.

Developed by Relentless Studios, specialists in music based video games, Buzz!: The Music Quiz is a wholly new interactive gaming experience that turns your living room into a slick TV game show studio. Get ready for action as your compere 'Buzz' invites up to four contestants to play head-to-head in a fast paced, fastest-finger-on-the-buzzer music challenge.

Easy to pick-up and play - Buzz!: The Music Quiz comes complete with four bespoke buzzers each with the essential big red button and a multitude of zany buzzer sounds! Choose from single or multiplayer modes, opt for a quick 15 minute lightning fix or settle in for the long haul with a more intense muso-challenge!

  • Select one of 16 funky contestants - from Elvis wannabee to Britpop rocker or raver chick to pop diva.
  • Take a deep breath, walk on to the set amidst the dry-ice to the canned applause of the studio audience, get ready for the cameras and meet your very own host Buzz and his sexy sidekick Rose
  • Grab hold of your buzzer - it's the red button for the quick response rounds, colour coded buttons for multiple choice questions
  • Get ready for the tunes as Buzz draws from his record collection of over 1000 clips from International chart topping tunes
  • Watch out for trickier questions - you'll be quizzed on trivia including the song title, year of release, artists name or anything else connected to the song in question
  • Think smart - Buzz gives you the chance to dance rings around your opponents, steal points and make it to the top of the leader board.

And remember... Points make prizes!

Buzz!: The Music Quiz hits the shelves across Europe in October 2005 giving you the chance to be the game show king this Christmas. With six decades of music on offer, Buzz!: The Music Quiz is brilliant fun for everyone and a real test of your music know-how.
