Ghostbusters: The Video Game Launch Date

Atari has just confirmed that Ghostbusters: The Video game will launch in North American for the PC, Playstation 3, Playstation 2, Wii, and Nintendo DS on June 16, 2009. The PS3 and PS2 versions will launch in Europe on June 19th. There's been no word as to why the game will not be launching for the PC in Europe.

This launch comes on the 25th anniversary of the first movie, and alongside the arrival of the original film on Blu-Ray. The most exciting thing about this game is the fact that Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson (the original Ghostbusters, for those of you who live in holes) will be voicing their characters.

When you combine that with the fact that Ramis and Aykroyd (the original writers) also wrote the game's script, you have a video game that comes as close to Ghostbusters 3 as we are likely to get for a while.

Honestly, that wouldn't be a bad idea to apply to other series. There are a lot of great series out there that never got finished because the originals didn't sell well, or arguments erupted among the cast, or the cast members just started to age too much. It's a lot cheaper to make Ghostbusters: The Video Game than to make Ghostbusters 3: The Movie, and it's also a lot easier to get the actors to agree too.

I hope that more developers start to realize this. I'll take more Firefly however I can get it, and an Indiana Jones video game set back in the 30's, with the original cast members as voice actors, would be just about the best thing in the world. Get on it, Hollywood.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
