It’s been rumored, but it’s finally confirmed that the Ghostbusters are coming to PS4 with a remaster of 2009’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
This is what we should have gotten since 2016. Not that crappy top down ghostbusters game.
The PS3 version was abisal crap.
Nothing to write home about but I rather enjoyed it.
Sure it was.
It really wasn't, great game. In fact you're the first person ive seen say its bad.
Because it's a PS4 exclusive.
@Ricegum - it's not.. had you actually bothered to read the article instead of commenting first, you would know it's coming to other platforms too
I played and finished the game on Xbox 360 (best version by far), Ghostbusters is one of my all time favorite movies, PS3 version sucked hard. https://www.eurogamer.net/a... https://www.eurogamer.net/a... Better be informed
I don't think downvotes actually played PS3 version. It was widely known as bad due to poor optimization and was even a joke from Xbox 360 users at PS3.
I played PS3 version, absolutely nothing wrong with it.
Yup, you are totally correct, here is the video: http://videos.eurogamer.net... @OneEyedSteve A bit closed up are you, better open your eyes.
I played the ps3 version, it was great. Not saying any version is better, but that.... who cares. We're getting a remaster of a great game. Simple
Which is prob why they are remastering the 360 version for all platforms. It was certainly the better of the two (we wont talk about the Wii/PS2 one... it was quite different).
Might be worth a revisit if they put some love into it, they definitely had something with the original, it just felt limited.
That's interesting they just added it to Xbox Backwards compatibility. I wonder how much better it will look than the original on Xbox one X
If they enhanced it Playstation dont stand a chance
Bit salty over there?
I mean if they enhanced it and PS4 has a remaster I would think it would be pretty much the same.
It'll still outsell the xbone version even if enhanced for x lol. And the pro doesn't look 'soupy', thats fake news fgs. Theres only one version it'll look soupy on.
I think this will again prove the term "remaster" is misleading and maybe even an insult to intelligence.
Who said anything about which one will sell better? There are more PS4 players so it will sell better on PS4
did they up the render resolution? If so I bet it looks exactly the same.
It wasn't exactly a showstopper for the 7th generations technical prowess it was a decent looking game but didn't push the boundaries to far. so even a enhanced version or a remaster with upped res and better textures will it really matter the game was more art style driven than anything else look at the details on character faces for a good indication of what they went for. In short it's like a graphics comparison for crash or Spyro it doesn't matter all that much
I'm confused is this remaster a playstation exclusive?
Can't be worse than the all-female Ghostbusters relaunch movie.
It was pretty silly, if they really want to make women look important or whatever they were going for they should create new stories and characters. The new Ghostbusters came off as lazy and we were supposed to love it just because they cast women instead of men.
Glad its finally confirmed, such a good game. I wonder if the multiplayer will be removed? I liked it.
Day 1, again.
I don't think this is an exclusive. It was rated for Xbox One a few weeks ago in Taiwan and Korea, as well as the PC version in Korea as well. I also saw a tweet from someone mentioning a Switch version too, but I'm still researching to find confirmation on that part. This happened before about a month or so ago with XIII's remaster trailer since the first only was on PlayStation's YouTube channel and had only the PS4 logo, people thought that was exclusive until other articles came out later that day with all three systems and PC confirmed. Update: Playghostbusters.com (the official Remastered website) has all three systems/PC logos listed, so this is full multiplatform.
This was considered to be the true Ghostbusters III to fans that played it. ....Wonder how Sony's gonna retune it to "fit with the times."
This isn't a Sony exclusive so they don't have a say with that. Atari owns the rights to the game (or at least they did for the first release) and Mad Dog Studios is handing publishing.
Its just a remaster, not a remake.
I'm of two minds on this one. If It's decent remaster with higher resolution assets all around, It's a day 1. If It's just a [email protected] upscale of the PS3 version (which I already own), I'll wait it out considering there's a chance the PS5 will be backwards compatible.
They'd more than likely use the PC version as the base to work on since that was the best version in terms of the engine and graphics.
It was an enjoyable game (though the MP was annoying AF), but I don't think this really needed to be remastered.
Most likely to help build hype for the movie coming out (the real ghostbusters sequel)
Still have the Slimer statue from the collectors edition of the game. Will still be picking this up. I love the game.
Put it in VR, add 2 player online and stream crossing and you got yourself a deal.
Too bad this isn't a sequel to Ghostbusters I played the hell out of the game on PS3 best Ghostbusters game to date besides the Sega Genesis game. I hope they cook up a sequel on PS5 to bad Harold Ramis won't be in a sequel to the Ghostbusters game.
If there's still interest, then between this and the new movie they may consider a new game in the same vein as this.
Take that back man!!!
No because I was referring the remastered part not the game it self because really now you remastered this late in the generation still it's a good game I beat it on last gen
