Fingers on the buzzers for Scene It? Lights, Camera Action
Popular movie trivia game makes its exclusive debut today on Xbox 360

AUCKLAND 29 November 2007 – Do you know your ‘King Kongs’ from your ‘Kill Bills’? Or your ‘Beetlejuice’ from your ‘A Bug’s Life’? It’s time to start polishing up that movie knowledge as the popular DVD trivia game Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action® makes its video game premiere exclusively for the Xbox 360TM video game and entertainment system.

Available now from Microsoft Game Studios, Screenlife Games and WXP, Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action is a multiplayer brain-teasing trivia game that tests even the most seasoned movie trivia pros and allows up to four teams or individual players to relive moments from their favourite movies whilst seeing whose movie knowledge comes out on top.

Keeping true to the game show feel, Scene It? Lights, Camera, Action introduces the Big Button Pads – a simple-to-use, wireless controller – allowing each team or individual player to buzz in when they think they know the answer. Employing the latest infrared technology, the Big Button Pads also minimise the chance of an argument over who answered first and allows up to four teams to pit their trivia wits to claim the movie guru crown.

Lights, Camera, Action is sure to keep players guessing all night long. The game features movie clips in HD format as well as hundreds of photo stills and audio clips from your favourite films such as ‘King Kong’, ‘Pretty Woman’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’. Plus, new technology keeps track of questions that have already been asked, minimising repeat questions and allowing you to play again and again.
