Buzz! Quiz TV Bundle PS3 - $19.95 at Wal-Mart - Not YMMV

This was reported in the YMMV Wal-Mart thread, but I have yet to see anyone in any state not find it at this price, so it seems to have been marked down at all Wal-Marts. Found the last copy at a Wal-Mart here in Indianapolis, marked $59.95 but rang up $19.95.

Figured since it's not YMMV, it deserved its own thread. This is the Buzz! Quiz TV Bundle with the 4 controllers in the big box, usually at the bottom of the display case or not in the case on a shelf with the Guitar Hero and DDR bundles.

Thanks for the heads up! I wanted to pick this game up because a good friend of mine has it. For $20, I can't pass it up at all.

Nice to find that it dropped in price finally somewhere. It'll be worth picking up, especially for the lots of DLC they have for it.

:bomb:the last time i checked at walmart it was both listed, and rang up as 59.99. we eventually paid that price for it at a BB, cause we could not find it anywhere in the area for cheaper. all the local sears had none, and 59.99 everywhere:bomb:

It is also $19.97 at Sears if it turns out this is YMMV, or your Wal-Mart is out.

Thanks OP. Guess I'll actually make a trip to Wally World at this point. Between this item & the YMMV situation with the Playstation Network cards I'm finally motivated to get off my butt ;-)

Are the controllers any different for the PS3 compared to the PS2 version bundles?

Yeah, they're wireless and take 2 AA batteries apiece.

I know this is a rather lame question, but this game seems extremely popular.... What is the reason for that? Seems like if it were just a quiz game, even 4 people wouldn't make it that fun.

They must've thrown in something cool. Someone try to sell me on this!

the game is very fun with a group of people. at $20 its a no brainer if you have peopel to play with. IMO its a no brainer at $40.

It's a fun party game. Don't get it if it's just you playing, as you'll tire of it pretty quickly.

Great game, I already have it but I'm considering picking it up AGAIN for the 4 extra controllers. I'm pretty sure you can play with up to 8 people local multi

Yes, great game when people are over, for all ages. 8 players is especially fun.

Ignoring downloadable content, does the base-game differ at all from the PS2 versions? Are the built-in questions a subset of previous questions? Do they even overlap at all?

I think the YMMV will come in when you actually try to find this in stock. Using the stock search tool, I can't find a single store in most of Southern California that actually has any left. Maybe stock levels are better elsewhere.

Same here. I found one entry when I searched by my zip code which was 20 miles from me, though it said it was Out Of Stock. :-s

For the lazy. I saw some at a wal-mart near me recently and don't see it here^ so who knows how accurate these are. I wonder if you do site to store if you could return and rebuy or price adjust if this is indeed ringing up at all Wal-marts for $20

not sure I believe that site, it basically just said 0 stores in Virginia carry the game and I know I saw it when I was checking to see if PSN cards were clearanced at my local store

the stock search tool seems funky anyway, i put in my zip code and it only picks up 3 stores in my area, when there are no less than 7 or 8 closer than the ones listed

would you guys recommend this over Scene-It: Box office smash? I've been wanting to get a trivia game and don't want to have both... I have too many controllers already as it is

Thanks OP. I've been hoping to find a price drop on this. $20, tons of DLC + trophies... I'm in. Now just to try and find a copy...

I can confirm that the Supercenter on Cooper in Arlington, TX still has at least one. I bought one :).
