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 on June 19th, for PS3 and PS2, to co-incide with the release of the Blu Ray movie from Sony Pictures.</blockquote>
From a business stance, it's a brilliant deal from Sony, allowing them not only the bragging rights of exclusivity, but also the ability to market the hell out of the Ghostbusters brand for a few weeks where they'll be releasing both the games and a blu-ray. A PSP version will follow in the Autumn.
And what of the Wii, DS and 360 versions? Atari will be publishing those "later in the year".
Update @ 14:15 - we just want to clarify that this applies to PAL only territories (i.e. UK, Australia, etc). No word on how this will effect the US release yet.
Wow, no comments yet... why not be the first?
