    I, for one, can't wait for the new ghostbusters game. But when it comes to multi-platform games the developers have to compromise some things in order to run the game on all systems. It turns out that if ghostbusters was a PS3 exclusive we would be getting a much richer experience.
    I'll still get the 360 version most likely though since I can just "borrow" it from the internet.
    Wish it was coming out sooner.

    I was so thrilled by the fact a possibly non-suck GB game would come out, but then going along those lines of arrogance up there they decided to make the Wii into some piece of shit shovelware title from the sound of it (and I'd say fairly well backed up by NO imagery showing up really or info.) It's off my radar out of protest.

    Yea, but unlike the PS3 and 360, you can pretend your Wii-Remote is a Proton Pak Wand, and actually bust ghosts!

    Wii FTW!

    From what I've seen and heard of the Wii version it sounds & looks fun, its headed down a different more, cartoony direction and I'm please for it. Sure it sucks for people who'll only ever have one console but for those Wii60 owners it means two Ghostbuster games instead of one.

    Also its not shovelware, people need to stop using that term for games that might not be what they want. The game has been given to a different developer who has worked with the Wii before and they have been working on the Wii version before the game was announced. They're putting a lot into the Wii version which itself proves its not shovelware.

    Sure if I could only have one version than it would be the 360/PS3/PC one but there isn't just one so I'm grateful.

    I agree I'm going to get both the wii and 360 version. The motion controls and cartoony feel are actually appealing to me. Hooray for wii60 owners or even PSwii60 owners hehe.

    WTF are you talking about? The Wii version being more cartoony?? What drugs are you on??

    It's going to be the EXACT same game across all 3 platforms... Same graphics, same story line, same everything except controls.

    Where ever you heard the Wii version will be different, you might wanna stop talking to the little green men on your shoulder... it would stop these retarded rumors!

    Wii and PS2 versions will be cartoon like as you can see.

    edit: should probably do some research before calling true things "retarded rumors."

    There isn't a single Wii screenshot there. On top of that it says nothing about the versions being the same.

    Look its not the same game! They only share the same story and that's it! There is no way the Wii can do all the shit that the 360/PS3 versions can do.

    I read the info from the link provided...where does it say it'll be the same? It doesn't. The link Bob Loblaw gave is all true, accept it you're wrong.

    Yeah me and Hadrian saw it and we are telling you the Wii can't produce those graphics. Those screenshots are not from the Wii version.

    Ok, so Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition can't produce the graphics it did? Looks like the same graphics...

    Why would the put WII in the title of the screenshots if they were not from a Wii build?

    No the Wii version is even being made by a seperate company Red Fly Studios while the Xbox 360/PS3 is being made by the makers of Bloodrayne. I am so glad I have a Wii lmao

    Aside from busting ghosts...no. The Wii/PS2 ver reminds me more of 'The Real Ghostbusters' while the HD guys get the full game looking more real.

    It's true the Wii has real proton pack action with the aiming, but until I see a final product with reviews it's still off my list due to the lowballing ps2 port bs being done.

    Looks the same? WTF? Have you seen the detail and the mass of things (all of which have their own pattern) in the screens?

    In the last screen all the books and bits of paper and card all move with their own AI.

    Plus the 360/PS3/PC version have AI that is miles ahead than RE4. There is also this part where Stay Puft is running through a crowd of hundreds of individual people, who all have their own AI and move differently. Their movements are never the same each time you play.

    So you have hundreds of people each with their own different AI.
    A great big fucking stay puft dude reacting to scenery, people and the Ghostbusters.
    Plus your own playing who has to work with 3 other Ghostbusters who each have their own AI too.
    As well as that there is this huge city, with a very long draw distance as well & the scenery is destructible too.


    Don't think the Wii could do that to be honest, maybe in the future someone could work out how to do it than cool but now nope, sorry not possible.

    The Wii in the 360/PS3/Wii bit is just there as its out on the Wii, that is all! The same site did the same with LEGO Indiana Jone, Wii/PS2/PS3/360/PC/PSP/DS...so the DS version is the same right? No.

    So you could either take that information and accept it or you can delude yourself and be in for one major disappointment when you see a different game on the Wii. Up to you.
