All the way back in the dim distant video game history of October, we reported that Dan Aykroyd (he used to be on Saturday Night Live) had inadvertently told the world that Sierra's Ghostbusters: The Video Game was moving house
Well, now Atari has finally got around to confirming that it owns it. Yes, it's good news for owners of the PS2 , Wii, DS... (you get the drill, it's on all platforms) who enjoy retro-movie tie-ins.
It also gives us the chance to quote SPOnG favourite, Phil Harrison, President of Infogrames Entertainment, the parent company of Atari saying the word "fantastic" and "mayhem": "Ghostbusters: The Video Game
is a fantastic addition to Atari's global line-up in 2009.
"The title has built considerable anticipation and excitement among game fans for its high quality action and all-out mayhem. There's no more thrilling Ghostbusting experience to be had, short of building your own proton pack."
Yup, we can't imagine Phil actually using the word 'all-out mayhem' either. Maybe some marketing type did?
We are also told that, "The film spawned some of the most memorable comedic catch-phrases and scenes in motion picture history".
Aside from "cross the streams" and "who-you-gonna-call" (and without consulting IMDB) we're stumped. Favourite GB moments to the Forum please.
