Playstation 3 (PS3) Jeopardy Online

Post by DysonSphere »

Hello all. If you're like me, then online Jeopardy is sorely missing from your life. I play the 2003 PC game and the 2012 PS3 game over and over against the computers. Good for study but lacks the thrill element of a human opponent. Back in the day, PS3 Jeopardy online play was a heck of a good time. All the players have of course long since left the PS3 platform. I'm not aware of any newer versions of the game that are both challenging (not multiple choice etc.) and offer online play.

If you have an old Playstation 3 lying around, or if you can cheaply obtain one used, would you like to play the PS3 game online with me? It's available for around $10 on ebay. I would be a reliable repeat opponent.

Or if there is another way we can play online I'm all ears. I do Protobowl from time to time but it's not the same as a real matchup.

I've got a PS3 but I don't think I can play online without a PS Plus subscription. Looks like that's $120 a year.

I haven't tried Jeopardy! Playshow but that looks cool. I think it's only multi-player for your living room and you can't play online.

There probably should be a better option to play online.

The link to protobowl is here if anybody hasn't seen it. It's alright. https://protobowl.com/jeopardy/lobby

Sometimes people in protobowl organize something on jeo-party (http://jeo-party.com/) which lets you play against others with DDs and FJ but you need to be in a chat room to set it up and there isn't a buzzer, everybody just has to type fast and it's not the same.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

You shouldn't need a PS Plus subscription. I never had one. Just access to Playstation Network. Multiplayer is handled through the game itself. See if you can get through the Playstation Network verification nonsense and update the system online. If you can, then you should be good to go.

Please consider picking up the 2012 THQ version of Jeopardy for PS3. It's the best Jeopardy game I've ever played. Lots of replay value. Around $10 on ebay. I will try to play the multiplayer with you if you decide to get it. Tons of fun.

The one on Amazon says the release date is 2014 but the one on eBay says it is 2012. They look the same. Is there a difference in the year?

THQ is the maker. PS3 version. 2012. I'm not aware there is another version. Seller might have listed the year incorrectly.
