Just read the latest Game Informer, and the cover story was all about the new Ghostbusters game, slated for October 2008.

The game:

Vivendi. That's right, parent company to Blizzard, who made a little game called World of Warcraft, and Sierra, who made something called Half-Life, has taken hold of the Ghostbusters license and is running with it. Built as a 3rd person shooter with (presumably) the Half-Life 2 engine (courtesy Sierra) running the physics, the actual game play looks to be solid. The graphics are phenomenal, the pictures from the 360 version of the game made me ga-ga, as they were dead on from the movies. It was a little wierd seeing Dan Aykroyd circa 1984 running around in there.

The story:

This is where it gets really interesting, and where I found myself jumping up and down pumping my fist. Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, who if didn't know were the writers of the actual movies, are writing the story for the game itself. For all intents and purposes, 'Ghostbusters 3' is coming out for the XBOX 360 and the PS3 (Wii and PS2 versions will be available, but far toned down graphics wise). On that note, while Aykroyd and Ramis will be back to do all the voice work necessary for their characters, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and William Atherton have been confirmed as doing voice work for the project as well.

I might have to wait a year to get my mits on it, but I figure GTA IV comes out in March, and that'll preoccupy me well enough until October.

I'll believe it when I see it. But if that's true, I'm buying a 360.

Now I'm wishing even more that I took advantage of one of the Black Friday deals on a 360.

I remember reading some interview where Akroyd said that he wanted the third Ghostbusters movie to be full-on CGI ... I guess this will have to do

I was going completely by the article, but IMDB also has him on the slate for the game. Then again, IMDB isn't the most reliable source in the world.
