Sony to mastermind another Buzz blockbuster

Stop! Don't consign your Buzz buttons to the same peripheral graveyard/cupboard as your lightgun, steering wheel and that grease-coated sandwich toaster. Instead blow the dust off the device, as Sony is about to give it a new lease of life with Buzz: The Big Quiz.

For this sequel the subjects on offer have expanded from specialist music questions to include sport, film, celebrity and general knowledge. The number of competitors under the show's spotlights has also grown from four buzzer-clenching contestants to eight.

While it will keep the same hugely annoying host and cheese-coated style, The Big Quiz will also add new rounds, giving players more of a chance to steal points and so sharpen the competitive edge even further.
