I must say that this is a very surprising move!
I wonder if they will help tune it up a bit...

WhittO3064d ago

to be honest, i wish Sony would spend their money on making games like Modern Warfare 2 or Assassins Creed 2 exclusive, not...Ghostbusters

DeforMAKulizer3064d ago

Well, those are very well established game franchises and they for sure will be very very very expensive to establish publishing rights on, and im sure Activision and Ubisoft wont let such money rollers go away from them...
The Ghostbuster franchise is practically Sony owned, and as a game its new, so Atari might have needed some help...
Plus, this gives revenue back to Sony for every PS copy sold...

WhittO3064d ago

i dont mean for sony to actually buy them, just pay for a timed-exclusive.
Basically what MS is doing with LP2 and Mass Effect 2

If Microsoft let Ghostbusters there is no way they did so without some kind of deal & they get something exclusive in return. Or they will be suing if a contract was messed up

M$ never had a contract with atari. I think sony is going to buy out atari. Thats why phil harrison moved over to atari. At least thats what I'm guessing. Atari is just a dead fish anyways.

Nah, it's just as business goes these days. Being a timed exclusive, I am sure MS has nothing planned to retaliate. Besides, they had their chance to publish it as well as Sony did, it's just that Sony took the first bite.

PirateThom3064d ago

Ha, Microsoft have nothing to do with Ghostbusters.

They didn't "let it go" in the hope of getting something, Sony just stepped up and took something they owned and made sure it appeared on their platform first, when the Blu-ray versions of the movies release.

Ghoul3064d ago (Edited 3064d ago )

As usual, if microsoft buys exclusives you guys jump and an down and tell the world how much sony sucks. oh i see, its sony getting a timed exclusive now.

"If Microsoft let Ghostbusters there is no way they did so without some kind of deal & they get something exclusive in return"

you act like microsoft needs to allow any gamedev out there to go sony exclusive.

fanboys....

ultimolu3064d ago (Edited 3064d ago )

Microsoft buys a game: (360 fanboys) YEAH! WE GOTZ A GAME, WE GOTZ A GAME! YOU SONY FANS GOT SCREWED, BWAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHA! *chest thumping and screams of joy*

Sony has rights to game and it's a timed exclusive" (360 fanboys) MEH! IT WON'T BE A GOOD GAME ANYWAYZ! SONY SCREWING GAMERZ OVA!

Nobody says anything when Microsoft does this but when it comes to Sony, the 360 fanboys are on this like butter and rice.

I hope the game is good and I'm pretty sure it'll be good since it wouldn't make any sense for Sony to punlish it and it turns out like crap.

whoops...the site is slow as hell today.

Anyway, good to see Sony getting aggressive. They should have done this with Spiderman though...it's a much bigger franchise.

So was a contract breached with Microsoft's deal ? I am looking forward to Microsoft's reaction & if they will be taking anyone to court

dogmeat eater3064d ago

Its owned by columbia pictures. Which is owned by sony. Stop being a tard.

SL1M DADDY3064d ago

You will be waiting a long time. No deal was struck with MS since there was no publisher set in stone prior to this anouncement. Heck, even Atari was just listed as publisher a little while ago and now gave up the ghost to Sony for the rights.

Ghoul3064d ago

"So was a contract breached with Microsoft's deal ? "

ghostbusters is owned by sony, allways was allways will. There are no "Deals" with ms. grow up.

RedVsBlue3064d ago

It is still a TIMED EXCLUSIVE which means that IT WILL FAIL as history shows us ALL TIMED EXCLUSIVES DO

Ghoul3064d ago

thats what where used to here from types like you:

"Noone will care about the ps3 version after it was a 360 timed exclusive"

and now its

"It is still a TIMED EXCLUSIVE which means that IT WILL FAIL as history shows us ALL TIMED EXCLUSIVES DO"

haha awesome stuff right there.

Baka-akaB3064d ago

Just for the record , when has it failed again ?

Anyway i never understood why it wasnt an exclusive anyway . I dont get how fully owned Sony stuff go multiplatform , i can understand for not fully owned stuff like Spiderman , but ghostbuster ? Good or bad game , Sony should have put a veto from the get go . Sony needs to pull his insane ressources better and together .

Panthers3064d ago

I think someone is upset.
