262w ago - Narrowing the vague 2009 release date initially provided for Ghostbusters, publisher Atari has now revealed that the anticipated classic movie tie-in will arrive next June.
The date was announced during Atari's press event today, with MCV publishing the news.
It was not specified if the date applies to North America and Europe or just EU, though both territories are seeing near-simultaneous releases of major titles.
The Ghostbusters game is slated to hit PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 care of developer Terminal Reality, with Red Fly Studios handling the PS2, Wii and Nintendo DS editions.
Ghostbusters was originally slated for release this fall, but that changed when the game was dropped by former publisher Sierra after it merged with Activision. Atari picked up publishing rights for the title last month.
290w ago - Thanks to this fairly recent Ghostbusters gameplay footage, we certainly aren't afraid of ghosts anymore. The game looks pretty nice and we hope it jump-starts the classic franchise back to life -- a lot of lesser movies and TV series' have been getting brought back, after all.
What's interesting, but not in the video, is the use of Sixaxis for the PS3: apparently, you use it to control the trajectory of your ghost-bustin' stream.
Of course, crossing them is a bad idea unless you're facing the final boss, we'd imagine.
293w ago - Terminal Reality has revealed the new Ghostbusters game could make it onto PSP after all.
So far the game has been confirmed for PC, PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360 and DS - while Sony's handheld appeared to be missing out.
But according to executive producer Brendan Goss, that could change in the future. "There are discussions right now about a PSP version," he told Eurogamer.
"We're waiting to see how the PS2 stuff goes from a technical side with memory, then it may get ported to the PSP."
The PS2 version of Ghostbusters, like the Wii game, features more cartoony visuals and a simpler narrative than the Xbox 360, PC and PS3 titles. There's also an exclusive offline co-op mode where you can take on another player as either a ghost or a ghostbuster.
