I love what Sony has done with the Ghostbusters Blu-ray cover art. Instead of going wtih the original green “Slimer” look before the title was delayed over a year ago, they’ve dug into Universal’s creative hat and yanked out an all “Blu” look that will go great with The Incredible Hulk all “Green” look.
In addition to the new cover art which you can check out below (front and back, though back is small… that’s how Sony Home Entertainment rolls), Sony will include a making-of featurette for Atari’s upcoming Ghostbusters videogame coming to Xbox 360 and PS3. I have a demo level of this game sitting at home that comes out every time I need a Ghostbusters fix. The game rocks every fiber of nostalgia in your body and is a must-own for anyone who ever experienced the slightest urge to fire a proton beam with reckless abandon.
The Blu-ray version of Ghostbusters will arrive in 2.4:1 1080p video and 5.1 Dolby TrueHD lossless audio key for replicating firing up a Proton Accelerator Pack.
