Taiwanese ratings board reckons so
If you never played the likeable Ghostbusters: The Video Game on the PlayStation 3, then you may be hyped to hear that the 2009 tie-in could be about to cross streams with the PlayStation 4. A leaked Taiwanese rating for Ghostbusters: The Video Game Remastered certainly suggests as much, and while the Xbox One is...
It Carnby true
THQ Nordic is a company with a lot of cash, and it’s buying every dormant intellectual property it can get its greedy little hands on. Next up: survival horror Alone in the Dark, which it’s clawed away from the clutches of Atari Europe for an undisclosed fee. The company also picked up real-time strategy series Act of War, which...
What's past is prologue
Back when Atari’s attorneys rocked up on Jeff Minter’s farm and issued one of his prize llamas with a cease and desist letter, it seemed unlikely that Tempest 4000 would ever release on consoles. The eccentric industry veteran had planned on porting the PS Vita’s agonisingly underappreciated TxK to the PlayStation 4,...
Don't be a-llama-ed
Game development icon Jeff Minter’s public spat with Atari had a very happy ending: he’s been allowed to make Tempest 4000 for the PlayStation 4. And it looks like the title’s release is imminent, seeing as it’s just racked up a PEGI rating, suggesting that it’s (almost) ready to go. The game – which looks exactly as...
Jeff Minter and Atari make up
Not too long ago, Atari and legendary llama loving game maker Jeff Minter locked horns over TxK – the PlayStation Vita’s spiritual successor to Tempest 2000 which was blocked from release on the PlayStation 4. Now the publisher appears to have made the peace with the creator, announcing that Minter's own Llamasoft...
Knife to know
Want to witness the origins of Quantic Dream's innovative interactive drama? Fahrenheit (also known as Indigo Prophecy in the United States) will launch on the PlayStation 4 as a PlayStation 2 Classic starting 9th August in North America and 10th August in Europe. We've no idea why there's an additional day delay in the Old World,...
We're sure there are cases of game developers going on strike in the past, but certainly none that immediately spring to mind
That's exactly what's happened at Eden Games though, as the Test Drive Unlimited 2 developer has gone on strike, blaming its parent company, Atari, for "mismanagement". Eden Games is currently facing lay-offs of around 51 people from its team of 80. Eden Games..
Confession: we lied about the hot cocoa bit
The free DLC is totally on, though. Test Drive Unlimited 2's launch hasn't exactly been what you might call "smooth sailing". The game's been plagued by huge game-breaking glitches and frequent server outages, but with a patch on the horizon, the future's looking a little brighter. To make up for the post-launch headaches, everyone's set to get..
The only notable new release last week has rushed to the top spot of the UK sales charts
Test Drive Unlimited 2 saw enough sales to beat Dead Space 2 into second position. The Eden Games developed racer mixes an unusual blend of racing with social networking. The XBOX 360 SKU saw the most sales, with the original Test Drive Unlimited being a big hit on the platform. Obviously the PS2 version wasn't..
Well sort of anyway
Test Drive Unlimited 2 is a strange beast. It's not just about burning rubber and crashing cars, it's about socialising in an enormous open-world too. The game boasts pseudo-MMO components that allow you to get your The Sims on and start creating characters, customising wardrobes and go dancing. It's an unusual marriage, but one that actually piques our interest. We like social..
Atari's just sent word that their upcoming PSN co-op title, Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime, will launch on the PlayStation Network this coming March 22nd
The game replaces the original Ghostbusters squad with characters first introduced in 2009's PS3 release, Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
As developers Vitamin G quirkily put it on the PlayStation Blog, "Congratulations
Youve hit rank 50 in another first-person shooter. Now its time for something completely different. Welcome to The UnderGarden." The UnderGarden is an experimental co-operative PlayStation Network title from Atari and Vitamin G. According to the developers,...
If you've ever thought that the PlayStation 3 needs more Ghostbusters games, then Atari's Ghostbusters: Sanctum Of Slime has totally got your back
The PlayStation Network follow-up to 2009's Ghostbusters: The Video Game is being developed by Wanako, and features online (and local) four-player top-down ghost guzzling.Unfortunately the game will not...
Do you like Ferraris? Atari does
Check out this trailer for Test Drive Unlimited 2 - the slow piano music, the sweeping shots of the car's body. It's sensual, erotic. It's also kinda dumb. We prefer these racing game trailers to have blistering drum and bass music and cars jumping over hills.
Atari's pushed their upcoming MMO racing game, Test Drive Unlimited 2, out of its release window in 2010 in order to give the game's multiplayer more polish
It's now due to release in 2011. The game's beta, which was due in a few weeks, has also been delayed. Atari's revealed they'll announce a new start-point for the beta soon. Atari had some good news though, as they revealed that those taking..
It's been a long time since the Eden Studios introduced the world to its conceptual Massive Open Online Racing universe
This fall, it returns with Test Drive Unlimited 2. The game will feature dynamic day/night cycles, vehicle damage and weather effects, aswell as a whole new progressive online world.
Good news: Phil Harrison has left Atari
Bad news: Phil Harrison probably won't be returning to Sony. The former Sony worldwide studios man (now replaced by Shuhei Yoshida) left Sony in 2008 to join Atari. Phil was a key member of each of the Playstation hardware family's launches, even demonstrating the Playstation 3 hardware with the famous ducks demo in 2005. We're sad to hear how things turned..
CD Projekt's confirmed during a spring conference today that The Witcher 2's coming to consoles aswell as the PC
A lot of people are super excited about this. The original game was supposed to be coming to consoles too, but the project was canned during some studio changes and cut-backs. The game was formally announced this week and is due for release in 2011.
Remember the Ghostbusters video game? Well now you can experience it all over again - except this time, in your pocket
That's right, Ghostbusters: The Video Game is coming to the PSP. And going by this trailer posted on Joystiq, it's going to be a pretty faithful recreation of the game on Playstation 3.
Remember just before Ghostbusters: The Video Game came out on the Playstation 3? Yeah, there was a bit of an uproar regarding the graphics
That's not a problem now though, because developers Terminal Reality have issued a patch to fix the problems:"Both single and multiplayer modes have been updated. In single player mode, fixes include an increase in resolution to match that of Xbox360 and..
Thankfully for Atari, a company in pretty dire need of a successful game, Ghostbusters: The Video Game has gone on to sell over one million copies in the US across all platforms
That's a massive big deal for Atari so well done to them. The game was pretty good too.
Despite complaints over its graphical capabilities, the European Sony timed-exclusive Ghostbusters: The Video Game has managed to chart at number 4 on the British sales charts
It's interesting because more often than not multiplatform games sell better on the XBOX 360, leaving PS3 versions further down the charts. Alas, all this proves is that multiplatform games sell really well on the PS3 when..
We played through and reviewed Ghostbusters: The Video Game last week
Honestly, we thought graphically it looked fine. Far from the succulent kind of visuals you come to expect from Playstation 3 exclusives these days, but fine. Hence why when Lens Of Truth broke the news of sub-standard graphics in the PS3 version (when compared to the XBOX 360) we ignored it. Honestly, the game did and still does..
Many Europeans were seriously pissed at Sony for claiming the rights to publish Ghostbusters as an exclusive in Europe
Seems like said people will have to eat humble pie as Atari cease to exist in Europe as of this morning. Hoping to beefed up its business resume, Distribution Partners is handling all Namco Bandai releases in Europe, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. Last March, [span.tagautolink..
In the past few weeks we've really been starting to get hyped for upcoming Ghostbusters game
Not only does the formula lend itself perfectly to a video game, but the fact that Dan Aykroyd has worked on the script compounds our excitement. In fact, we simply can't wait to give it a go. The above new trailer highlights some co-op footage from the game and shows off new weapons and what not. It..
Oh man; video games - this is why we love them
This is insane news. The Ghostbusters game - which was planned as a multiplatform game - has passed publisher's hands like, well, like Swine flu really - starting out at Vivendi, moving to Atari and now - weeks before the June 19th release - ending clasped between Sony's mitts. In this mornings press release, Sony said:We will be releasing the title..
Stop what you are doing
There is something everyone must do right at this moment. And that's to watch the opening cinematic of the upcoming Ghostbusters game. We're actually not sure if anything could be more amazing.
The remake of classic XBOX title "Escape From Butchers Bay" is coming to PS3 on April 7th in the US and 24th in Europe
The game, which features a remake of the original game and new chapter "Assault On Dark Athena", will also have a prerelease demo some time in March.
