According to MCV, Sony has “negotiated a shock 11th-hour deal”, whereby the PS3 and PS2 versions of the game will be released not by Atari, but by Sony Computer Entertainment. Those versions will be released on June 19, the same day that the film’s due to out on Blu-Ray.
Did I mention how much I hate exclusivity deals for Games? Whilst the above is talking about the European release, as we're a PAL territory I can't help but feel it'll extend to shafting Nintendo/XBox owners here as well. If the game ends up being arse then nothing lost, but so far it's looking pretty promising from both the quick play I had at Supanova & the videos/interviews on it.
If a game is not available on Wii I simply don't buy it. Their loss. Who the hell has a game machine made by Sony? These are the people who made those s***** portable radios in the 80s.
Oh wow, so its not coming out in PAL territories at all on the other platforms? Thats harsh
Nobody knows anythign for sure yet regarding the PAL stuff
Khel: From the original article about the EU release, they're coming but "not until much later".
Teq: The re-release of ghostbusters on Blu-ray I beleive.
I mean, platform exclusitivity isn't a new concept by any stretch. That said, pulling this sort of crap less than a month or so away from release when the title has been marketed and talked up as being developed for all platforms... well, yeah. Rolling out "rediculous" and "a slap to the face" is quite apt I think ;)
I wonder if this affects any planned PC version?
I was confused at first too.
There is a ghostbuster 3 coming in 2012.. however this is not the film they are refering to here.
I think they are refering to the original 80s film being released on Blu-ray.
