In a move that has taken most people by surprise, Sony has swooped in and picked up the publishing rights for Ghostbusters from Atari and will now only be publishing the game on the PS3 and PS2 just in time for the release of the new Ghostbusters movie.

Thereafter they will also hold an exclusivity period until the PSP’s version is released a couple of months later.

At the time of writing no one really knows what is going to happen with the Xbox 360 or Wii versions but if the rumours are to be believed then Atari will be publishing these versions a little later down the road.

Personally I feel it’s a master stroke by Sony as the ghostbusters brand holds a special place in many people’s hearts and they are now well placed for some great marketing opportunities.
