The days of you being on a bus and getting pissed off because you can't participate in a virtual game show are coming to an end, my friend. Sony announced today that Buzz! is headed for the PSP this summer.
Developed by Relentless Software, Buzz! will keep the wonky antics from the previous Buzz! games that tested your general knowledge acumen and toss them onto a UMD for one to six players to enjoy on the go.
The game will pack more than 5,000 questions covering topics such as music, celebrities, and more to tackle in six new round types specifically designed for PSP. Sony descried Quickfire Challenge as a "speed-is-of-the-essence" challenge, Picture This as a "picture-puzzler" and Virus Challenge as "mind-boggling." Each round comes complete with pictures and videos.
Buzz! will have three multiplayer modes including Pass Around -- where one user answers and then can choose who to pass the next question to based on the subject material -- four-player Fast Fingers via game sharing, and Quiz Host mode, which allows six players to face off with one of them asking questions and controlling points.
Of course, Sony isn't forgetting the "table for one" crowd. Single-player in Buzz! will have 15 different quiz challenges to test general knowledge and award bronze, silver and gold medals as well as special trophies for answering a certain number of questions correctly, answering quickly and answering a certain number correct in a row.
