"Who you gonna call? Not Atari, that's who."
Aww, and I was so expecting to see some Ghostbusters PSP action in E3! Turns out that Atari will be pulling out from this year's gaming event - and no, it's not really because of Swine Flu concerns.
They're pulling out of the show floor and have confirmed that they won't be making any sort of press conference in LA during E3. From a press representative of Atari:
Atari has made the proactive decision to attend but not exhibit at this year's E3 event. Although we feel E3 benefits the entire games business, we are very focused around other selling and marketing initiatives for our upcoming Ghostbusters, Champions Online and other to be announced titles.
With the ESA website still listing Atari as one of its exhibitors, this sudden turn of events makes it appear as if it was a last minute decision on Atari's part. Dude, there's like three weeks left before the event, and only now they decide to pull out? Aww.
