No Ghostbusters PC Multiplayer

A post on Ecto-Web analyzes the Ghostbusters: The Video Game specs, pointing out that Windows is the only one of the game's platforms other than the DS that's not getting multiplayer co-op, a shortcoming that's also highlighted on Co-Optimus. Thanks Gary.

you people actually expected this to be a co-op game? I thought it was supposed to be a single player game from the beginning.

I think it's a chicken and egg kind of thing. Many PC gamers don't buy a lot of console ports so they sell poorly. Apparently, publishers takes this as permission to do a crappy port, ensuring that PC gamers aren't ever persuaded to buy them. The cycle continues.

Most people don't care about co-op anyways, so why waste time implementing it in the version of the game that will sell the fewest copies by far?

Flame on!

Then they will whine again how few copies were sold on the PC and the bad pirates are the scapegoat of course. And so they will never make a game for the PC again without even thinking once about their own failures.

Not that I care for console ports anymore anyway...

PC Gamers are pretty hard core when it comes to online play. It's mainly reserved for popular FPS and RTS games, look at how there are no players for FEAR.

Pretty sad. It doesn't bode well for a proper pc port if they are not willing to put in the time to do coop on the PC it really makes you wonder what else was shortchanged.

Very funny, Threewave did the multiplayer portion of this game and it's not even going to be on the PC version! That just sucks. I would've bought 2 copies right out of the gate for my son and I but now I will buy Zero copies! Thanks for nothing!

Who you gonna call??
NO-BODY!


Edit: I bet it's going to be a PS2 port as well!

The game's $30. Big freakin' deal. I can't imagine being interested in multiplayer for this game anyway.

**SIGH**

Nothing new. But still disappointing how PC gaming is treated like a red-headed step-child.

Lost sale here too. Was looking forward to playing this, but will pass now. I may end up getting it on PS3 sometime in the future when Sony decides to drop the price on the PS3.

Yep there goes my purchase for it as well. Was looking forward to this game primarily for the coop with friends going through it. Pretty sad given the codes already there for MP since it's activated on consoles. Laziness on part of the developers. Most of the folks I know who wanted to buy this were buying it for coop so hopefully it won't sell well, maybe they'll actually learn something from not selling many units. But I doubt it. =P Probably blame their lack of sales on piracy instead lol.

Weird that they can get it to work on the console platforms? Guess they just didn't want to spend that extra time on the PC version... Wonder what else they skipped doing for the PC version.

That REALLY sucks, how hard can it be in 2009?? L4Dead managed it pretty good. GB lends itself to 4 player for f's sake
