Funny, I bought Scene-it as soon as I confirmed that I don't have to use those pointless controllers. I prefer using my regular wireless 360 controllers that also happen to have 4 colored buttons on them that I already know the color configuration of without looking.


It's also way cheaper to buy the Buzz/Scene-it Controllers than it is to buy regular controllers for those that don't do regular multiplay. It seems the UI on the game is set up for regular controllers, as well.

Will these support the Buzz or Scene-It controllers?

THIS IS IMPORTANT.



IIRC the Scene-It controllers are just a D-Pad (that is the button) and the XBYA

This game was incredibly fun on the PS1. "Screwing" people over in the game was always funny. Then again, it's been many years since I've played so who knows how well it'll play out on the PS3/360.

It is not important because they do not have a dedicated button for Screwing Your Neighbor.

Yep. With optional use of the trigger instead of D-pad if playing with a standard controller.

In a pinch I'm sure the average host has 2 controllers, a Guitar and a DJ Turntable to use for player 3 & 4. DJ Turntable is the best, it includes a bonus built-in mini lazy susan for snacks and drinks.

YDKJ has always relied on the buzz-in method before doing anything else, including answering or choosing to screw, but if they did let you use the buzz controllers, the screw option could be activated by pressing the buzz-in button again.

2016 and still living in my XB360 world...

i doubt most of the people saying it will suck are old enough to remember the PC versions.

I actually asked if the Scene It controllers were supported on their Facebook page and they confirmed that those will work with YDKJ.

Thanks OP. My wife loved the old, original game back on the PC. The OXM review was highly positive, plus $10 off makes this a good deal. Kudos for the heads up!

Is there a link to the OXM review? I can't seem to find it via simple google search. Any indications as to how the "Kinect support" works on this game?

I think I had every PC incarnation except Sports...Even The Ride was fun for a while.
Great games. Loved the shortlived TV show. ["Someone on this show will drive away in this BRAND NEW CAR"]

I think the OXM review mentioned how many questions [or episodes] were in this release, anyone have that number?

In. It was great on the PC, but should be even better on the big screen.

I could see it dropping in price quick, not because it's not good, but because it's a trivia game. Then again, there are probably enough older gamers who played the PC, PS, or web versions to give it legs with slow steady sales.

Buying it day one anyhow. My friends love YDKJ (with Volume 3 being the favorite, "Impossible Questions" and all).

Amazon hurry and match the PS3 price so I can pre-order!

I sent in the GS price to Amazon when I posted this. I'd encourage others to do the same to get the price matched sooner

My question is will this game be just as good and as hilarious as the PC and the FIRST PS1 versions of the game, or will it be similar to that piece of crap "Mock 2" on the PS1?

Currently playing:
:360: nothing
:3ds: nothing
:pc: nothing
:ps3: Killzone HD

Does anyone know if this uses the original show host? I remember I wasn't a fan of the later iterations due to a change in host.

Depends on who you hated.

FROM THE WIKIPEDIA ENTRY ON YDKJ:
There have been many different hosts of You Don't Know Jack over the years. The following is a list of hosts and the games they appear in.

  • Nate Shapiro (voiced by Harry Gottlieb) – Nate Shapiro was the first host of the series. He hosts Vol. 1, the Netshow, the tabletop game, and hosts for part of YDKJ: The Ride. He is not to be confused with "Nate the Intern" from the Flash incarnation (voiced by Production & SQA Coordinator Nathan Fernald).
  • Guy Towers (voiced by Andy Poland) – He appears in Sports, Sports: The NetShow, and part of The Ride.
  • Buzz Lippman (voiced by Peter B. Spector) – This host has appeared in two versions: Vol. 2 and The Ride, the latter which he only appeared in briefly.
  • Cookie Masterson (voiced by Tom Gottlieb) – He is one of the most well-known of the hosts. He originally served as the sign-in host, taking down players' names in the opening green room segments of Vol. 1, Vol. 2, and Sports. He hosts Movies, Vol. 3, the Netshow, the first PlayStation version, part of The Ride, and Offline. He also was the announcer for the YDKJ TV show in 2001. He also hosts the webshows and daily DisOrDats that appeared on the YDKJ website from December 2006 through September 2008, (With one special episode in November 2010.) He will also be the host of the YDKJ game coming in January 2011.
  • Josh "Schmitty" Schmitstinstein (voiced by Phil Ridarelli) – Josh Schmitstinstein, or "Schmitty", is the most recent of all the American CD-ROM hosts. He hosts in TV, part of The Ride, The Netshow, Louder! Faster! Funnier! (a second Offline game), 5th Dementia, Mock 2 (the second PlayStation game), & The Lost Gold. He also hosted one particular question in Cookie's volume of Offline.
  • Bob (voiced by Andy Poland) – The host of HeadRush.
  • Jack Cake (voiced by Paul Kaye) – The host of the only British version of YDKJ.
  • Quizmaster Jack (voiced by Axel Malzacher in Vol. 1 and Kai Taschner in Vol. 2, 3: 'Downward', PlayStation, & 4) – The host of the German volumes.
  • Troy Stevens (played by Paul Reubens) – The host of the 2001 YDKJ TV show.

Cookie is hosting this new release. You might recognize Cookie's voice from Whacked Out Sports.

For those eagerly anticipating the return of Cookie, or for Trivia fiends, You Don't Know Jack (slated for release on 2/8/10) Amazon has discounted the Xbox 360 pre-order by $ 10. This brings the price to $29.00.

The PS3 version remains priced at $ 39.99, and the Wii version is full priced at $29.99. Link is below.

For those who haven't played the game before, You Don't know Jack is an Irreverent Party Trivia Game, which had it's heyday in the 90's but it's hoping to make a comeback.

It's best known for it's blend of humor and high degree of difficulty. There's a demo available on the official website if you want to try it out.

I loved these games on PC back in the day, but this really seems like it would've been better suited for PSN/XBLA. Even $30 is a lot for a trivia game. But thanks for the heads up.
