Ghostbusters only Sony exclusive in PAL territories, US multiplatform release still a go

ghostbusters-wii-atari01-copyGhostheads in US territories can breath a collective sigh of release thanks to Atari CEO Jim Wilson, who contacted GamesIndustry this morning to assure them that Sony only bought the rights to the upcoming Ghostbusters game in PAL territories.

“The Sony Computer Entertainment partnership is exclusive to Europe, Atari is going to be publishing on all platforms in the US on June 16,” clarified Wilson.

Until now, fans had feared that the Sony buyout would have outright canceled Xbox 360 and Wii versions of the title, but new information shows that this a Europe exclusive deal.

Although it still seems like a shady move that’s unfair to the fans, screwing Europe seems to par for the course when it comes to game publishing.

Ghostbusters will be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and Nintendo Wii on June 16th 2009.
