New Ghostbusters Game timed PlayStation exclusive

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.

You can watch the video game's opening cinematic by following this link.

[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.

Gonna be wait and see but likely that cos of whats happening Sony will request Atari region lock it so people dont import. Sony knew PS3 isnt massive in US hence why its coming out stateside on time as Ghostbuters wouldnt really sell on PS3 in USA even with a timed exclusive.

From destructoid:

Ghostbusters fans and Xbox 360 owners across Europe were more than a bit peeved when they first learned that Sony had locked down Terminal Reality's game for a timed PlayStation 3 release in that region. Destructoid is based in the United States, but we understand your pain... and we're very sorry.

But today we have some good news for you. Destructoid has confirmed with Atari that the North American version of Ghostbusters for the Xbox 360, set to hit stores on June 16, will not be region locked. Yes, that's right -- if you're jonesing for some ghost wrangling, you'll be able to pop the disc into your PAL console and start busting. Because as we all know, busting makes you feel good.

While the game isn't officially available until next week, we're already hearing reports of readers picking up copies of both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions at their local retailers.

There are plenty of places online that you can import the game
