Kuju Entertainment developing 8-player Buzz! The Sports Quiz for PS2

Kuju Entertainment is developing Buzz! The Sports Quiz for PlayStation 2. The game will follow the hugely popular Buzz! The Music Quiz and Buzz! The Big Quiz, and will be published by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.

Buzz! The Sports Quiz will feature a wide selection of brand new rounds as well as the most popular rounds from the previous games. With questions suitable for both hardcore sports fans and a more mainstream audience, crazy outsized props (like a giant treadmill for the contestants to run on while answering) and lots of fun new ways to answer questions, the game will have something for everyone.

I made 200 useless questions, myself. Just 25 sets of 8 questions (junk) for the silver trophy (and it was my final needed to platinum Buzzz). I imagine a HUGE number of the questions are similarly worthless.


Sony Buzz-ed with trademark suit

Along with titles like EyeToy and SingStar, Sony's Buzz! line of quiz games for the PlayStation 2 have been part of a concerted effort on the part of the electronics giant to court a more mainstream audience with its gaming console.

Carlsbad, California-based Buzztime Entertainment has filed suit against Sony Computer Entertainment Europe in the Southern District of California, alleging that the Buzz! line of games and the "It's time to get buzzing" tagline violate several of its own trademarks.

Looks like another company jumping on the 'me too' legal battles

That's just ridiculous, none of the trademarks were violated. They're probably just mad that they're losing business.

Where do these lawsuits keep coming from?!?!

Sony and Relentless Software should sue Microsoft. We all know that it is a copycat when it was announced.

I don't think its going to matter because no one is going to care about the game.

MS should sue Sony for all the stuff they stole from them.

PS3's design is based from XBOX and Xbox 360 they need to work on the online and SKU's thought!, PS3's "xbox like" functionality is coming along though.

lets be real.

i have had remotes years before buzz with 4 colored buttons for quiz games.

SimmoUK5835d ago

it looks exactly the same apart from they have round buttons instead of the longer rectangle ones which will be harder to select in a high speed game, complete copy of idea and controller they should sue for sure...
