Enjoy the hottest TV Game Show on PlayStation!

All you have to do is answer 15 questions. Sounds pretty simple, right? Well, it starts out easy but gets tougher. Every wrong answer makes you want to crawl back into your cubby hole. Pressure’s on. Can you handle it?

  • Features host Regis Philbin complete with his wit and attitude. You’re in the “hot seat” now…are you up to it?
  • Easy-to-play interface means no excuses for you!
  • Are you ready to prove just how smart you really are? Is that your final answer? (Okay, okay, we just couldn’t resist!)
  • 600 mind-bending questions.
  • All 3 Lifelines – “Ask the Audience”, “Phone a Friend”, and “50/50” – just like the real thing.

 

Variants

The original shown above was released with a sweepstakes piece attached to the front of the actual jewel case, beneath the shrinkwrap. The back of the manual calls it out. The play piece contained a number the consumer would need to enter in at Sony’s designated site. The back of the manual (not pictured) showed the Sweepstakes and the points about it.

When the contest was over, Sony reprinted the game without the Sweepstakes Sticker. Confirmed by sealed copies, opening it revealed that Sony forgot to remove the Sweeepstakes information from the back of the manual.

Jewel Case Release – No Sticker, Same back of Manual

Upon realizing their mistake, Sony reprinted the game a third time, this time finally replacing the back of the manual with a generic artwork of Regis. This would eventually become the Greatest Hits.

Trivia

  • The game proudly boasts that there are 600 questions featured. The problem being if you were to answer all 600 correctly – with 15 questions per ‘show’ you would only have to play the game 40 times to see all the questions.
  • Obviously, and very clearly fake money is being thrown around by Regis on the cover.
