Sony Computer Entertainment today signed a deal with Atari to publish Terminal Reality's Ghostbusters, making the game a timed PlayStation exclusive.
In a surprise turn of events, Sony has signed a deal with Atari to publish Ghostbusters, just one month before its release.
The game is set to release alongside the Sony Pictures Blu-ray of the original film, but now only for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 2. The PSP version will follow a number of months later.
The game was originally in the works for Microsoft's Xbox 360, Nintendo's Wii and DS, and PCs, but it's now unclear what will happen to these versions. GamesIndustry.biz understands that Atari might publish them at some point in the future.
Ghostbusters was originally dropped by Vivendi Blizzard after their merger with Activision last year. Atari picked up the title, but the economic climate has seen the company continue to experience financial problems.
The fact that Ghostbusters is a Sony Pictures property, and Atari is now headed by previous Sony Computer Entertainment Worldwide Studios president Phil Harrison might have a cursory connection to the deal.

[UPDATE] - VideoGaming247 has gained comment from an Atari representative, who has stated that the game should release on non-PlayStation platforms later in the year, though there are no official dates.
