SDCC Ghostbusters game – demo controls


While they shouldn’t be considered final, Lucas sent in this pic of the demo controls for the Ghostbusters game. At this stage, they are if nothing else, a really good hint of what the final controls will be, as well as hint as some of the equipment setting features. Thanks, Lucas.

SDCC Ghostbusters gameplay footage


[UPDATE]
Wow, I hope you watched it, because it got yanked within minutes of me posting it. I wonder if I got a PBS channel in trouble? Whoops.

If the video comes back, I’ll be sure to post it again.

[UPDATE] QZeddemore has found submitted a video he made and posted to Game Trailers – very similar to the one that was on Flickr earlier.

[UPDATE] And more video! Thanks Zack!

[UPDATE] Q posted a whole lot more info he’s gathered at the SDCC – details of the game gleaned from Assoc. Producer Ryan French, pictures of swag from the show (marshmallow flavoured lip balm – nice), and still pics of the game demo main-menu (showing the Firehall in a near exact copy of its real surroundings in New York.) “Extras”, eh?

[UPDATE] Found a new link to the PBS video. Kotaku has their hands-on impressions from the show (thanks to Adam.) As well, Gamespot has not one, but three videos from SDCC, which pretty much put the PBS clip to shame, but fair’s fair – they got the first video up, even if it disappeared for awhile.

Envy the booth nerds



There’s a much nicer shot of the Sony booth (full size pic here) – the game is obviously getting some high visibility. The booth has a lot of attendants in black tees with the logo, like the two playing the game here – I’m wondering if the public is getting any hands on time.
