Ghostbusters brings back many fond memories from my childhood. At the time of its release in 1984 I was 10 years old and like thousands of others went to a packed cinema on opening night to enjoy cult sci-fi comedy. As well as being the only film I've seen at the cinema that resulted in a standing ovation and a vociferous round of applause, I persuaded my parents to buy me a copy of the superb ZX Spectrum game in which players set up a ghost busting franchise. Many an hour was spent sucking up stray ghosts and catching Slimer ghosts in the ghost trap whilst singing along to the catchy theme tune - those were the days!

Well, it looks like Ghostbusters is back folks! Times have changed dramatically in the videogame industry and word has come that Ghostbusters is receiving a videogame makeover!

Four videos have appeared on YouTube that appear to show some footage from the game. Currently, we have no idea whether they are fake or real, but fingers crossed we'll find out very soon.

UPDATE from Zootfly: 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.

Anonymous source: The clips do show a genuine game, in development by Zootfly for the X-Box 360.
