Yesterday, Ghostbusters was being published by Atari, and was due to be released simultaneously on PS3, 360, PS2, Wii and DS. Today, in a strange move, that’s no longer the case.
According to MCV, Sony has “negotiated a shock 11th-hour deal”, whereby the PS3 and PS2 versions of the game will be released not by Atari, but by Sony Computer Entertainment. Those versions will be released on June 19, the same day that the film’s due to out on Blu-Ray.
But what about the other versions? They’ll still be published by Atari, but apparently the Sony deal includes a timed exclusivity clause, whereby the 360, Wii and DS versions will be delayed until “later in the year”.
