Since the arrival of Facebook for PS3 at the end of last year, down here at Relentless’ towers in Brighton we’ve been busily putting together a world-first. I’m pleased to tell you that on the 22nd March we’ll be patching our most-recent game, Buzz!: Quiz World, with PS3’s first true in-game Facebook publishing features.
How does it work? Super-simple. Once you’ve set-up your Facebook account on the PS3 and installed the patch, at the end of each game you’ll be offered the chance to publish to Facebook some info about what you’ve just played.
This info can be about a multiplayer game you’ve just enjoyed…
…or a singleplayer challenge you’ve just set a great score in…
…and you can post up to five times a day.
On the Facebook side of things, you’ll see a bunch of colourful Buzz! stories, telling your friends what you’ve been up to in the game.
We’ve built this patch for as many languages as possible, with support for (take a deep breath) English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, Polish, Czech, and Croatian.
It’s great to be offering the first ever PS3 feature of this kind to Buzz! fans. We’ve been working closely with the team at Facebook to make this happen (thanks are due to Sony’s online tech guys in the States too). Quiz World is a fantastic social game and it feels like a great fit to connect it with the world’s biggest social network. Look out for the patch today – we hope you have fun with it.
