E3, Los Angeles, May 10 2006 - Sony Computer Entertainment Europe [SCEE] is pleased to announce the Q3 2006 release of Buzz Sports developed exclusively for PlayStation2. Building on the huge success of previous Buzz Quiz titles, Buzz Sports is a must for both quiz and sports aficionados alike. It also sees the now 'legendary' Buzz return for his third series of the hugely successful Buzz Quiz series.
Buzz himself commented,
"They just had to have me back for another series and this time it's Sports, something I am a natural at. With some of the high profile friends I have in the sports world, I have been offered plenty of incentives to make sure certain celebs are included. But any money I do receive will obviously go straight to charity."
Buzz Sports features support for up to 8 players, enough for the whole 'team' to play in this top of the league sports quiz clash. With 10 individual rounds to battle through, including Spin and World of Sport, Finish Line, Estimation and old Buzz favourites like Points Builder & Pass the Bomb, Buzz Sports will have you wishing for 'extra time' every time you pick up your Buzzer.
Buzz Sports also brings back some of your favourite Buzz characters kitted up in different sports attire, Disco Stevie as a Basketball player, Gina as a tennis player and Pelvis as a darts player, to name just a few. The Buzz studio has also been transformed for Buzz Sports, an indoor sports arena now greets contestants when they leave the locker room to face the camera, lights and audience.
Buzz Sports comes packed with great new content, including hundreds of fixed images and video clips spread between local and world sporting stars and heroes from past and present day. Clips will feature both World Cup and Olympic moments as well as other sporting events across the globe.
Key game features include:
- 10 individual rounds to keep players coming back for more
- 16 selectable global sports characters
- Up to 8 players – competition for everyone!
- Hundreds of new sports images and video clips
Buzz Sports will be a must-have title for previous Buzz fans and will be sure to get all sports fans reaching for those buzzers to show who's got what it takes to come out on top. Who ever said it's the taking part that counts, rubbish!
People only remember who finishes first in the sports record books.
