[UPDATE] My late night post beat out the arrival of official press release on the tour. You can read it here. The pr is video game centric, which suggests that the tour is specifically a Vivendi/Sierra event, which would explain the absence of the SDCC, where one would assume Sony would handle any Ecto-1 and 1a appearances as part of the “big announcement.” Cheers to AJ at GBfans.com for linking people to the press release, for those interested.

For those not interested, the kicker is the blurb on some of the upgrades given to the Ecto-1 (some of which we saw in earlier photos.)

In light of ECTO-1’s tour to some of the hottest car shows throughout the country, Sony has taken the liberty to update the Ghostbusters’ ride with the latest and greatest Sony Xplod mobile electronics. ECTO-1 now sports a Sony XAV-W1 double din touch screen A/V center, Xplod XS-GT1625A speakers and an Xplod XS-L10S slim subwoofer – all the essentials to keep ECTO-1’s sound system on par with the rest of the ghost catching equipment found on the Ghostbusters’ primary mode of transportation.

It better play THIS, that’s all I’m saying; :p
