Atari made its presence at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2009 known by bringing out a major heavy-hitter for its promotion of the upcoming Ghostbusters: The Video Game.
What kind of heavy hitter could that possibly be you ask? THE ORIGINAL ECTO-1!
That’s right, the same Ectomobile 1959 Cadillac Miller-Meteor limo-style endloader combination car (ambulance conversion) [PHEW! Say that 10 times fast] was there at E3 2009 live and in person! Er. Uh. I mean, in machine. Or something.
Okay so while it may not have been as cool as having one of the actors from the classic movies there, it WAS definitely cool enough to attract a crowd. And many attendees wanted to have their picture taken with the famous vehicle.
Ghostbusters: The Video Game will be released for the on June 16th in North America on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, Wii, DS, PS2 & PSP. Europeans meanwhile will only be getting the PS3 and PS2 versions on June 19th and will have to wait until later in 2009 for the other versions., due to Sony exclusively publishing Ghostbusters: The Video Game in Europe.
