After going through the install process, the game displays a screen forcing the user to plug in one of the special Buzz World buzzers. Having only rented this game, I had no such controller and could not play it.
Renting this game without warning is bad of Gamefly. But the fault also lies on the developers because from what I understand, the custom controller is a 1 button pad which is dwarfed in functionality by the standard dual shock controllers.
Their requiring the custom controller seems entirely a money-making gimmick.
Unless you somehow already have the Buzzers, which ARE NOT SOLD OR RENTED SEPERATELY, you will not be able to play this game! Only peope WHO OWN the previous version of this game will be able to play it.
THERE IS NO WARNING FROM GAMEFLY THAT YOU NEED SPECIAL CONTROLLERS TO PLAY THIS GAME, and that is why this is Gamefly's fault.
After choosing this game I saw that it was on the way to my house through the mail. next I looked @ some reviews on gamefly. I was really scared, because all of them pretty much said the same thing. "can't play this game,because it won't work without the controllers that are bought with purchase of the game." I am a big fan of the Buzz games, so I own a set of the "Buzzers" for my PS2. We plugged them in to my PS3 console and.....they worked! Love the game!!! lots of fun @ parties. try playing teams. :)
