What's a great PS3 game for multiplayer gaming at the library?

My library has a Playstation 3 gaming program, and I'm looking to buy a few new games for it. Most of the people who come are ages 10-14, and I'm looking for games that would be appropriate for that age group (yes, I know most of them play Halo and Grand Theft Auto at home, but for the library they should really be rated T and under). We have some sports games (soccer, basketball, car racing) and some fighting games (Marvel Vs. Capcom, Street Fighter), and I'd really like a good game or two that doesn't fit in those boxes, but I'd be open to really good sports and fighting games. Oh -- and it should DEFINITELY have multiplayer. What should I get? (We definitely can't get a next-gen console.)

PS3 or PS4 couch-to-couch trivia games?

My husband and I used to LOVE playing Buzz Quiz World on PS3 against random folks online. This was a few years ago before we had kids. Recently, we tried to resurrect the fun, only to find no one else playing online. Upon doing a little research, we see that they're shutting down the Buzz Quiz World servers completely! My question is this: Does anyone have an online multiplayer "couch-to-couch" quiz or trivia game they love? Does anyone even know of a single one that exists anymore? I just read through a comprehensive list of all games expected to come out on the PS4, and... NOTHING. Am I just an old, old lady? Buzz Quiz World was so much fun...

Buy low, sell high games with travel

Can anyone recommend games with buy-low, sell-high trading systems like the one present in GTA Chinatown Wars, a DS game? My boyfriend just picked it up and he's having a lot of fun with the drug economy part of the game. Could be on PC or nintendo DS. He's tried eve and didn't really like it, and there's no travel involved in playing the AH in WoW so those don't work, but you do get bonus points if you can suggest a multiplayer game of some sort.
