Sony to publish Ghostbusters. (In Europe, NA need not be worried.)

Ghostbusters. We all know and love the franchise, but what about the game? It’s been a long while since it was announced, and until now, it hasn’t had a publisher. Enter Sony.

Could this mean that it will be a Sony console exclusive? Possibly. But for now, we can just watch and wait.

Update: The game has been confirmed as a timed exclusive for the PS3 and PS2. A PSP version will follow in a few months.
Wii, DS and 360 versions have yet to be commented on, and may be indefinitely cancelled. This, however, is unlikely.

Odd, since both Joystiq and IGN agreed the Wii version played better than the prettier 360/PS3 versions. Oh well, I wasn’t going to “DAY ONE!!1!!11” this anyways, even though I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan.

Activision was the publisher, and then Atari. Atari is still technically the publisher for the non-Sony versions, which are coming out “later in the year”.

Damn, this is what happens when you let a former Sonyoid become head of Atari. :neutral_face: Damn you Phil! :argh

This is good for Sony though picking up a popular game for a little while. Until it ships on PC, 360 in a couple months. Is it good for the game though? I’m not sure if its going to be blazing up any sales charts but I dunno not too many people are giving this title hype I’m interested to see how this plays out.

It’s pretty cool to see a major company picking this game up and sponsoring it, though.

And it would be hilarious to see a thing that says “Sony” on the Wii and 360 versions.
