    Not a happy chappy, had this pre-ordered for the 360 and now I have to wait longer. Think I will cancel it now.

    LOL yeah every single link off the main Hexus site has that.

    Mind I guess if it hits the PS3 first I can con a mate or two with one to go buy it and let me have a shot, if it sucks then I saved myself a nostalgic buy.

    Re: News - Sony swoops for Ghostbusters - PS3 exclusive

    Well, in NA it's still coming out for other systems (PC, X360, DS, Wii) on the same day as the PS3 + PS2 (June 16th). It's only Europe that Sony have the launch for June 19th (25th anniversary and blu-ray launch day) with other systems to follow later.

    Re: News - Sony swoops for Ghostbusters - PS3 exclusive

    Also had it on pre-order for the 360 but I can wait a little longer. There are a lot of games out at the end of May, start of June that I want.

    I can't see it not getting released on the other platforms, it's not like it's going to be a massive game that's going to get people buying an PS3 and it will already be out on the other platforms in NA.

    As I said before, it is getting released on other platforms, just not at the same time (still this year though).

    What it is with them buying all these exclusive rights?

    Anyone would think that they're trying to get some business going or something...

    Re: News - Sony swoops for Ghostbusters - PS3 exclusive

    I borrowed Ghostbusters 2 from someone on the Spectrum when I was a kid. He moved off somewhere near the Merseyside. I never did send him that tape back

    It is annoying that Sony have done this. It really is annoying. Instead of making me want to buy a PS3, I actually feel like I will never buy one

    And Ghostbusters looks like it would be great in Co-op. "Don't cross the beams"
