Summary: PLEASE READ BEFORE BUYING THIS ITEM: First off, this is a really fun game especially when playing with a large group. However, it does have one huge drawback. It requires its own special controllers which can be very expensive and difficult to find in complete working order. I am writing this review in hopes of saving potential buyers from unnecessary frustration, and perhaps even save them some money too. This game originally came with four wireless buzz controllers.
Summary: I was into family/party games awhile ago and this is a must have in the collection of family/party games. Quirky host and lots of humor to tease each other about. I bought the bundle because it comes with 4 remotes that are easy to use. If you ever liked those trivia game TV shows then you will absolutely love this game. This game also contains tons of add-ons through PS3 network. I never ended up buying any of them but there are lots to give you more questions.
Confirm Buzzers are include if you buy from Amazon Warehouse

Summary: This review should be about the seller "Amazon Warehouse Deals", but would get lost in their reviews (there are 500k!) and I thought would help buyers here the most. First off this game is great. I don't know why they stopped making it and the current price is crazy. Retail was around $60 and now a bundle to get the buzzers is going for $175. An old roommate had it and it was a great party game. I've been pretty disappointed that the price is now so high.
Summary: This game requires special device to play it called buzzers, be advice that the devices only can be used with a USB adapter pluged in the PS3 if you don't receive this adapter with the Buzzer, you won't be able to play this game.
Summary: I don't think I could say enough good things about this game. I spent a long time looking at trivia games before I decided to go with this one but I am really glad I did. First off, I wanted a game that would not rely on the existing controllers, which tend to be confusing for people that do not have experience with gaming.
Silly Family Fun... especially for younger players.

Summary: So I have been playing Buzz TV with my wife for a few days now, and here are my impressions. First, the questions are easy and do not really test your knowledge of anything other than pop culture. Don't expect anything like "Jeopardy" here. The game is silly, wacky, goofy, often obnoxious, etc... There is the possibility of future questions that can be purchased on the PSN, but so far I have only seen more pop culture categories such as "Horror Movies".
Summary: I have played this game quite a bit in the past few weeks and it is a great friend making and losing game. When putting the disc in, it does not take too long to load, and you are ready to go in a couple minutes after pressing the red button to surpass the intro and music etc. You then choose to play alone, with up to three other friends, or online with three strangers. Playing alone is just boring and pointless.

Summary: One of my largest criticisms of the Playstation 3 is how it lacks being a party machine or a family-friendly one. I recently purchased Pure and was extremely disappointed to see NO offline multiplayer. Sony has seriously capitalized on the growing online market, thinking since World of Warcraft has over ten million members, they should be able to pull off the same. Wrong! However, as William Shatner once said (again, and again), "There... is... always... hope!
Summary: Forget about the days of huddling around a table for hours to play Trivial Pursuit with friends. This is the 21st century, and Buzz Quiz TV reflects just how much times have changed. Most of the changes are good, but some of them are not. Overall, I found this game to be very entertaining and a good value for the money. I would recommend it to others despite its few shortcomings. I will give you the pros and cons of this game. PROS: 1.
