Now for me this is some of the hottest news to come along for video games in a long time! Here is what TeamXBOX has reported on the potential for Zootfly’s Ghostbusters and its appearence on the 360:
Over the weekend, four Ghostbusters prototype movies were leaked on YouTube and now ZootFly has confirmed to CVG the game is indeed in the works for the Xbox 360. But due to licensing issues, development of the game is on hold.
"We are very glad to see the overwhelming response to the Ghostbusters prototype movies. What you’ve seen is indeed in-game footage of early prototypes on the Xbox 360, running on ZootFly’s proprietary engine. Due to licensing issues, further development of the Ghostbusters game hit a bump on the road, but everybody here at ZootFly is working actively on resolving the challenges with the owners of the Ghostbusters IP."

Also if you want to keep tabs on the progress of this game head over to Zootfly’s website by clicking on this LINK. Failing the aquiring of the ‘busters liscence it looks as though we will still get the game under the name TIME0. It is a spiritual succesor to Ghostbusters and looks to be a hit even without the GB name. But we do all know that slapping the Ghostbusters name on the game will ensure its success, let hope that this will happen.
Back in the day I used to own Ghostbusters on the C64, I loved the fact that I was able to play as the ‘busters themselves. But, as much as I enjoyed the 1985 classic, I think I will enjoy the 20+ years of refinment videogames have gone through to make the new game better.
