Sony Computer Entertainment has today struck a deal with Atari that will see Terminal Reality's Ghostbusters game become a PS3 and PS2 exclusive, at least for the time being anyway.

The news comes just one month before its release so it's widely expected, though not confirmed, that the action adventure will also arrive on Xbox 360, Wii, DS, PSP and PC at a later date.

Ghostbusters is currently set for a June 2009 release to coincide with the launch of the Blu-ray version of the original film.

Ghostbusters was under the hands of Activision Blizzard, but it dropped the title following its merger with Activision last year. Though Atari rescued the title it has suffered more money problems of late and SCE has dived in to pick up the pieces.

Let's hope that all fans of the movie will get to play the game, not just those who own Sony's hardware.

Yeah, i remember the activision C64 version as well :)

Just taking a look at this new release, at Amazon they have a clip up for it as well http://www.amazon.co.uk/Atari-Ghostbusters-PS3/dp/B000ZLR1CY does look really good from what i have seen. Have to keep an eye on this :)
Not a happy chappy, had this pre-ordered for the 360 and now I have to wait longer. Think I will cancel it now.

LOL yeah every single link off the main Hexus site has that.

Mind I guess if it hits the PS3 first I can con a mate or two with one to go buy it and let me have a shot, if it sucks then I saved myself a nostalgic buy.
