'Wheel of Fortune' and 'Jeopardy!', two popular television game shows seen here on News10 every weekday, are now available as video games for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 from publisher THQ.

While both game shows have had video game incarnations in the past, these new HD versions promise to be the most advanced and entertaining editions yet.

Both the new Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! video games feature challenging new game content.  Wheel has more than 2,400 new puzzles (an additional 1,400 puzzles are available via downloadable content).  Jeopardy! has more than 3,300 new clues with more than 600 additional ones available via DLC.

Both games also feature authentic voice-overs from each's iconic hosts.  Pat Sajak, Vanna White and Jim Thornton are featured in Wheel of Fortune; and Alex Trebek and Johnny Gilbert star in Jeopardy!, as is the complete 'Jeopardy!' Clue Crew.

In addition to the core play that both game shows are famous for, the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game version will also provide a selection of unique and entertaining mini-games.  These mini-games act as the game shows' commercial breaks and are used to unlock new in-game outfits and other rewards.

Both Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have been rated "E for Everybody" by the ESRB.  A Wii U version is also planned for release in the near future.
