While Sony’s announcement earlier in the month that they would be publishing the Playstation versions of the Ghostbusters video game, and that a PSP version was coming, it was never clear what the release scope of that PSP port would be. Gamespot spoke to Atari CEO David Gardner, and confirmed that the PSP would make its way to North America, hopefully before Christmas 2009. For the whole article, read here.
Big Sound gives their review of the Ghostbusters, and in short, it’s a solid 3 out of 4 stars (I say solid because older movies tend not to shine in the eyes of AV fanatics as much as new films do.) You can read the review here.
[UPDATE] Something I should have made clear here, just as it’s made clear in the linked article. This could all be a big hoax by someone that can work 3D Studio Max or Maya (thankfully, see below, Dan’s on the case at E3. Fingers crossed!)
[UPDATE] The artist who generated the images has been posting on the GBFans.com forums, talking about the job as well as showing off more concept renders. Thanks to Kingpin for the heads up, if not a link (shakes fist, old man style.)
Big ups to Clay, who spotted this news leak that Intec is at least pondering the possibility of releasing a Wiimote accessory that’s made to look like a proton pack thrower. The leak however points out that while the item is designed, it is still just a prototype, and no a final or approved piece of Ghostbusters merchandise.
Dan Elektro, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is find the Intec booth at E3. Assuming they’re at E3 – I can’t check the exhibitor listing right now.
Convenient timing that this was leaked today. Looking to drum up a response maybe? Oh, I’m sure it will do just that. Drooool.
Ryan LeClair pointed out that the cover of the new issue of Empire magazine has a call-out “Ghostbusters 3: Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis speak!”, but that doesn’t say whether that’s a recycling of existing info or actually talking to them directly. If someone spots the magazine and finds out, let us know.
Next week, from Tuesday the 2nd to Thursday the 4th, word has it that Sony’s refurbished and shiny Ecto-1, along with the giant inflatable Stay-Puft we’ve seen wandering the globe, will be hanging out at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the Electronic Entertainment Expo. Even if Atari has reduced its visibility inside, Ghostbusters the video game will have a sizable visual impact outside. No details on placement, though it would most likely have to be at one of the plazas outside the major entrances, like at W. Pico and S. Figueroa.
Anybody attending, please take pictures!
[UPDATE] The location of the car and confection golem has been confirmed; In front of the Concourse, at Gilbert Lindsay Drive (Close to the West Hall and Staples Center area)
