In the days before the Nintendo Wii, it was actually Sony that ruled the casual games space – especially in Europe, with franchises like Singstar, EyeToy Play, and… Yes, Buzz!. For those of you who don't remember it – the series only seemed to be popular in the Old World – it was essentially a multiplayer quiz title, where you controlled...

creators Relentless Software have all but closed the book on the PlayStation 3's premium quiz franchise, stating that the series failed to meet the right demographic on PlayStation 3.

We've pretty much..
Eyeing up the opposition
Relentless Software has put out two Move-enabled titles already, melodic competition-fest Buzz!

Here's an obvious marriage: Relentless' oddball detective soap opera, Blue Toad Murder Files, is to get PlayStation Move support in way of a patch

Move to the beat
Melodic masterminds can try their arm at Buzz! The Ultimate Music Quiz, released across Europe this past Wednesday, with UK shops starting to sell it this weekend.

The oddly-shaped head returns
