Well, we can’t really help with that, but if you fancy your chances you can always practice for the popular TV show by playing Deep Silver’s Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: Special Editions on XBLA and PSN from today.
As well as the main Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: Special Editions game, featuring more than 1,200 questions covering all fields of knowledge, the first two special edition packs are also available to download now: South Park – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition and Who Wants To Be A Movie Millionaire?
Further game packs, themed around well known characters, brands and themes will follow in the future. This new game range is developed by doublesix digital under license from 2waytraffic International, part of Sony Pictures Television, which owns and licenses the Who Wants to be a Millionaire? format around the world.
In Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: Special Editions contestants participate in the fastest finger round and then scale a mountain of questions in the quest for that elusive virtual million, making judicious use of the three classic lifelines – 50:50, Ask The Audience, and Phone-A-Friend. It’s a social experience, too: up to four friends can compete locally to outdo each other, with each person’s score dependent on their speed.
The South Park – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition, developed in collaboration with South Park Digital Studios, is based on the Emmy And Peabody Award-Winning Series South Park. It offers hundreds of specific questions based on the South Park universe, set in a fully themed Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? studio and featuring an original South Park introduction.
The Millionaire set, audience – including main South Park characters – lifelines and contestants are all themed around the classic animated series. The pack also includes five player avatars, designed especially by South Park, alongside more than 600 questions taken from all 15 seasons of the show. Even the Phone-A-Friend lifeline features characters from the South Park world – but can you really trust Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo to give you the right answer?
The first three Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?: Special Editions releases can now be purchased from the PlayStation Store (main game £7:99; South Park £4:49; Movie £1:99) and the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft (main game 800; South Park 400 and Movie theme pack 240 Microsoft Points). In addition to this, there’s a free XBLA single player trial version of the main game available, including a set of the first seven questions.
