Good stuff Torrence glad you cleared that up.

But through all the hoopla Ghostbusters this morning was going to be a great game.

I wonder how people will defame it now after this news...you know...the word "exclusive" is the key to all mood swings.

Man, you speak the truth!

Like I said earlier, no point in losin out on the cash. :)

Im sure there will still be a few kids who are unhappy with this. Its like they go out of their way to find reasons, lol.

The second I heard there was a Wii and PS2 version I knew not to expect too much. Sure, the game still has potential, but it is severely limited by being on those consoles. There are very few games that come out on PS3/360 + Wii/PS2 that turn out to be solid titles.

When I want to get my GB fix all I gotta do is watch the old 80s episodes on Youtube.

maniacmayhem3059d ago

I think for the Wii it's a completely different game, graphics wise and gameplay.

I don't know if it's the same for PS2, I still think this game is going to kick ass its just ashame you can't actually play one of the original Ghostbusters. I would kill to play Bill Murray.

The Wii and I assume PS2 versions are a different game than the 360/PS3 versions.

Now I just hope that the game doesn't suck.

LOL unlucky for EU 360 owners, as 360 and Wii games are region locked...Good move by Sony as Europe is where most games and consoles for PS3 and PS2 are sold anyway....

But is anyway actually going to buy Ghostbusters anyway ? It doesnt seem like a huge game that will appeal to Wii owners, considering most Kids havent even heard of Ghostbusters. I think it will be a better game for 360 and PS3..

lowcarb3059d ago

I'm with Tony on this one and have a feeling from earlier footage of the game that it was made for PS2 and beefed up for 360 and PS3. I hope I'm wrong, but of course time will tell.

Aquanox3059d ago

Just in time before the fanboys started hyping up a game few really cared about before the news.

I is one of your "anyway" people going to buy the game anyway?

just messin with you..But I do plan to pick this up.

lordgodalming3059d ago

I hope no one "defames" the game as you suggest. It was always supposed to be multi-plat title, and to be honest, this clarification makes a whole lot of sense. All earlier press releases mentioned only SCEE, so this shouldn't be surprising.

Regardless of this media SNAFU I'm still looking forward to June 16. Who ya gonna call!

@ Tony

yeah dude, maniacmayhem is right. the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 versions are being developed by Terminal Reality. the PS2, Wii, PSP versions are being developed by Red Fly Studio. and the DS version by Zen Studios.

so just because it's coming out on all of those platforms doesn't mean a thing since 3 different studios are making essentially the same game. also, the one developed by Red Fly will make use of puzzle elements versus the Terminal Reality versions which will be more like "Gears of War Light" and have a stricter emphasis on action than the Red Fly version.

"LOL unlucky for EU 360 owners, as 360 and Wii games are region locked..."

Shows what you know. Not all 360 games are region locked, Microsoft allows the publishers to lock out regions however they like. Quite a lot of games are Region Free. Pretty much all Microsoft titles are Region Free, Capcom's are region free and quite a few others. Even EA, who used to only seem to do Region Locked games, have started releasing RF titles.
Ghostbusters (360) could very well be Region Free )Although I'm sure there's an agreement with sony to lock it out of the PAL territories or something). In fact, it's not immediately clear what's happening with Australia, which has the same region code as the rest of Europe so who knows what will happen for European 360 owners that are really despirate for this game.

Tomdc3059d ago

since it has already been developed as a multiplat title, making it an exclusive would make no difference to quality anyway... so there is noooo point

PSP23059d ago

lowcarb3059d ago

Were you not the guy that said in an earlier post that you recently lost your job? Now I'm not saying you can't afford all 3 versions but you sound like a liar.

Orange3059d ago

damm! this would have been a great NA exclusive. sony needs to catch up here in the states.

Orange3059d ago

are people disagreeing that sony needs to catch up in America, or that it would be a great exclusive for them? both seem to be facts, as i look at the vgchartz. confusing.
