Game information[edit | edit source]

Ubisoft released a video game version of The Price is Right for the PC, Nintendo DS, and Wii console on September 9, 2008. An updated version of the game (The Price Is Right: 2010 Edition) was released on September 22, 2009. Both versions feature the voice of Rich Fields, who was the show's announcer at the time release.

Four contestants place a single bid on an initial product, in dollars only, as the production company will round off all retail prices to the nearest dollar; the contestant who bids closest to the product's actual retail price without going over wins the item and then gets to play one of several mini-games, which are called Pricing Games in most countries, including the United States, for an additional and more substantial prize or group of prizes. One contestant, through various elimination formats, could find themselves winning a large showcase of prizes at the show's conclusion by predicting the total price of a "showcase."

Originally thirty minutes in length, the show was expanded to its current hour-long format on November 3, 1975. At this time, a new feature, the "Showcase Showdown," was introduced and remains in use. The three contestants who make their way on stage in each half of the show are asked to spin a large wheel, which is labeled from five cents to one dollar in five cent increments. The contestants spin the wheel once and then optionally a second time, and contestant with the total score closest to $1.00 without going over is brought back to compete for the Showcases at the end of the show. If one of the contestants gets exactly $1.00, either on the first spin or by the total of both spins, that contestant wins an extra $1,000 and gets a bonus spin. On the bonus spin, if the wheel lands on 5 or 15 cents, then the contestant wins an extra $10,000. If the wheel lands on $1.00, then the contestant wins an extra $25,000. The wheel must complete at least one full revolution on each spin.
