CES: Ghostbusters Game, Blu-Ray Hit June 19

More Gozer than you can handle will be available on a single date this summer, Joystiq reports.

Soon with way more pixels.

Quick note out of CES: Joystiq reports that Ghostbusters: The Video Game is set for a June 19 release, though which platforms will be out on that day aren't specified. That's because it wasn't publisher Atari who put out the announcement, but rather, amusingly, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The game's release date was actually a footnote in a larger release about the forthcoming Blu-Ray edition of Ghostbusters, the first movie, which is also due out on the same day.

I got a hands-on look at the Ghostbusters game a few weeks ago, so read that write-up if you want to know more. I have to confess, I'm more excited about the Ghostbusters Blu-Ray than the game's release, but don't interpret that as a slight against the game; I'm more excited about the idea of Ghostbusters on Blu-Ray than, well, just about everything.

How about you? Looking forward to busting ghosts and ogling Zuul in interactive form?

Brad Shoemaker: likes video games, long walks on the beach, ogling Cerebus-esque demon dogs from parallel dimensions in human form.

The only smart move available for Atari:

Special Edition of Ghostbusters the game that includes the Bluray movie for PS3

It's funny how nostalgia and childhood memories can suck you right in, and now that my 3 and 5 year old kids love Ghostbusters too I'm pretty much obligated to buy this now.

Not quite sure I want to ogle Zuul. Other than that, it sounds interesting. I don't own a blu-ray player, but you bet your ass I'm looking forward to the game.
