Digital text readers across the internets were up in arms this morning regarding word that Sony would be seizing the reins from Atari to publish Ghostbusters on PS2/PS3 in Europe and Australia, and mere hours later, the publisher came to the rescue to clarify.
The publisher dropped us a line this morning letting us know that Ghostbusters will indeed be published by Atari in North America with the PlayStation Portable/PlayStation 3/ PlayStation 2 versions by way of Sony in PAL regions.
What’s more we now have the worldwide release schedule-sorry PS2 + PS3 gamers abroad, you have to wait three extra days.
June 16 2009 marks the advent of Ghostbusters on PS2, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360, PC, and DS in North America published by Atari.
Three days later on June 19 Europe and Australia PlayStation 2 + 3 gamers get their fill via publisher Sony, to coincide with the 25th anniversary of the initial theatrical release of Ghostbusters.
No word on Xbox 360, PC, DS, or Wii coming to Europe this June in PAL regions. Sorry guys.
Furthermore, Atari confirmed a PSP version due out sometime in the fall of 2009.
