Vivendi is a decent company... Def. not bad. I like ghost busters too... grew up watching it... sooo many games coming we don't even have a clue. I can't wait.

HOLY CRAP THIS WILL BE GOOD! I'm glad they have different studios working on the game. The next gen platforms have one and the other systems have another. I think this is a smart move because the next gen games will get as much attention as they need to be completed properly.

I don't see Ray Parker Jr. mentioned!! We need a 3d Ray Parker Jr. to do the theme song.
