December 17, 2009


SCEA today announced the release of BUZZ! Quiz World,
available exclusively on PSP and PSP®go systems. Developed by Curve Studios,
BUZZ! Quiz World takes the interactive quiz show experience introduced with
BUZZ!TM Master Quiz to the next level, offering an updated single player mode,
online infrastructure support and access to new methods of expanding the
extensive library of over 3,000 questions that comes stock with the
download-only title.

“BUZZ! Quiz World delivers a robust BUZZ! gameplay experience
in a pocket-sized package for the gamer on-the-go,” said Scott Steinberg, Vice
President, Software Marketing, SCEA. “In an increasingly digital landscape, SCEA
continues to deliver a diverse catalog of downloadable content to the PSP and
PSPgo, putting the highest quality digital entertainment in the palm of your

BUZZ! Quiz World makes the full quiz show experience more
accessible than ever, giving players access to additional quiz content from any
wireless hotspot. Previously only available for use with BUZZ! titles for
PlayStation®3 (PS3™), a variety of PSP-specific downloadable quiz packs
featuring hundreds of new questions will now be available to download via the
PlayStation®Store for use with BUZZ! Quiz World on PSP.

Players can expand their gameplay experiences even further by
adding free MyBUZZ! content to their question banks for the first time ever on
PSP. Users can visit the Web site to create and share their own
quizzes or select quizzes created by BUZZ! fans from around the country to play
on-the-go with BUZZ! Quiz World.

Building on the franchise’s reputation for social gaming
innovation, BUZZ! Quiz World incorporates more ways for players to connect with
friends and compete in multiplayer challenges than ever before. An all-new
infrastructure mode takes multiplayer online for the first time, allowing up to
four players to join in an online competition. Players can also utilize the Game
Sharing option to take on up to three additional PSP owners while connecting
into a local ad hoc multiplayer challenge, using just one copy of the game. For
additional local multiplayer gaming, users can compete in a six player ‘Pass
Around’ game.

Including an updated single player mode and new rounds, solo
quizzing becomes a fresh experience with BUZZ! Quiz World. While testing their
trivia knowledge in new rounds like Defuse and High Stakes, players can
participate in a series of quiz challenges, elevating through a succession of
four quiz boards to earn new trophies and unlockable characters.

BUZZ! Quiz World has an ESRB rating of “T” for Teen.
