• Ghostbusters: The Video Game - Review Header

    Ghostbusters was released last month and it seems to be doing exceptionally well for Atari. In just a month’s time Ghostbusters has gone on to sell over a million units in North America alone. Figures for the rest of the world were not in the press release we received, however, one has to assume it is selling well internationally as well. It has also been recently reported that Sony’s timed exclusive on Ghostbusters in Europe is set to expire in the next couple of months as the XBox360, Wii, DS and PC versions will hit store shelves on October 23 throughout Europe. Once those versions are released it should be interesting to see how well the title does across the world.

    “We are very pleased with the performance of Ghostbusters: The Video Game, and credit the game’s quality as well as the incredible support from both the established and new fan base all helping to make this a retail success,” said Jim Wilson, Atari CEO. “Ghostbusters appears to be a strong and relevant movie-based franchise videogame independent of a brand new theatrical release. We look forward to the continued success of the title as interest and acclaim increase across North America.”

    • I think the developers really nailed what it would feel like to be a Ghostbuster. Congrats to the developer and Atari for picking the title up after Activision dropped it.
