From Sony;

GHOSTBUSTERS FIREHOUSE ON LOCATION LAUNCHES IN PLAYSTATION® HOME: Interactive Ghostbusters’ Movie Set Available Starting Tomorrow to Fans in Popular 3D Social Gaming Space

June 17, 2009 – In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Ghostbusters and its worldwide release on Blu-ray tomorrow, Loot, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s PlayStation® Home developer team, and Sony Pictures Consumer Products, together with Atari and Terminal Reality, are releasing the Ghostbusters Firehouse On Location for the PlayStation Home environment.

The Firehouse personal space is a detailed replica of the three floor Ghostbusters’ headquarters from the original movie. It comes complete with the ghost containment unit in the basement, the garage and office areas on the 1st floor, plus the living room, laboratory, fire poles, bedroom and bathroom areas. The space can be customized with Home players’ own furniture and picture frames as they host parties and create Ghostbusters: The Video Game strategies with friends.

Ghostbusters Firehouse On Location comes with the Loot’s Stage Set camera functionality, movie props and portable blue screens. Users can, through the use of an external special effects/compositing programs, create images of their avatar driving the Ecto-1 in their own machinima movies (capture and editing hardware/software not included). Fans can realize the dream of getting inside the historic Ecto-1, playing with the siren, turning on the engine, opening the trunk and checking under the hood. They can also fly around as Slimer and spook friends by passing right through the walls!

The Firehouse is available starting Thursday, June 18, along with Ghostbusters’ costumes, ornaments and t-shirts by Loot, which are already available in the PlayStation Home Mall.

And they sent pictures!

  1. Awesome!!! Fly as Slimer passing right through the walls to spook our guest???? Can’t wait to check this out.

  2. After seeing the in-game firehouse, that seems a little.. uninspired

  3. Still not available in Europe?

  4. I wonder if the containment unit will be based on the one in the movie… or the one from the game.

    I’m lead to believe the whole firehouse will be a mock-up of the movie set as they don’t specify that it’s based on the video game. not only that, but the fact that they open by mentioning the 25th anniversary & the bluray release as being the reason behind the creation of this set.

  5. first day buy for me too. i wonder how much it will be i only have $7 something left lmao

  6. All Home Personal Spaces released until now are U$ 4.99, this one comes with lots of furniture, Ecto-1 and Slimer… But I would guess that should still be the same price.

  7. @DaveFrehley – The Firehall is based on the one in the Video Game – although it removes all the clutter found in the videogame – They show the containment unit and it’s the same as the game. Now, if you remember the Containment unit was destroyed in the first movie, and a replacement was never seen – Ghostbuster lore has the Real Ghostbusters game explaining Egon needs to build a bigger and more powerful containment grid – and since the game is considered Canon, it appears that the containment unit we see could be what we end up seeing in the Third movie.

  8. **Sorry, I meant “Real Ghostbusters cartoon, not game*

  9. when r we getting this in Europe? I’m peevded, we may not get it at all for I know
