If there’s anything cooler than a downloadable retro remake of Halo, it’s the chance to own a really truly Halo 2600 cartridge for your Atari, assuming it still works and you can find it under the pile of board games in the attic.

After debuting little more than a month ago, Ghostbusters: The Videogame has already haunted one million North American homes.
“We are very pleased with the performance of Ghostbusters: The Videogame, and credit the game’s quality as well as the incredible support from both the established and new fan-base all helping to make this a retail success,” said Atari CEO Jim Wilson.
While the game hit every console under the sun in North America, only PS3 and PS2 versions heeded the call in Europe. We imagine Atari’s anticipating another sales boost when Ghostbusters launches on Xbox 360, Wii, et. all on October 23.

Gamasutra has the full scoop on Atari’s first quarter earnings, and things are looking pretty good. Boosted by the strong sales of games like Chronicles of Riddick and Ghostbusters, revenues soared 30% up to €54.5 million ($77.78 million).
However, Atari isn’t popping the champagne and threatening to stop supporting the PS3 just yet. The future, unfortunately, may not be quite as bright.
“This performance in the first quarter is mainly due to a favorable game release schedule and should not be extrapolated for the remaining of the year,” Atari stated.

For some of us, autumn, and the console versions of The Witcher, can’t get here soon enough. There’s new screens of Rise of the White Wolf after the break.
Sure, we’ve already played it on PC. Sure, it’s the same game despite a major rebuild. Doesn’t matter.
It’s Geralt. The Captain Kirk of the medieval world.

After Brash Entertainment shuttered its doors last month, a number of the short-lived publisher’s unreleased games were left teetering on the brink of obscurity. Fortunately, the newly emboldened Atari reached out a hand just in time to stop movie tie-in Tale of Depereaux’s fall.
With a big-screen debut only a couple of weeks away, this is good news for the armor mech-piloting mouse hero and his elephant-eared cohorts. Well, probably.

So it was rumored; so shall it be. After a relaxing summer in publishing limbo, Ghostbusters officially has a new shuttle onto shelves in the form of Atari.
The company gave the universal sign for “no comment” when asked about Ghostbusters’ release date, but Variety’s sources claim it’ll launch next summer, riding a wave of hype generated by the film’s 25th anniversary.
More of a surprise, however, is the announcement that Atari has also nabbed Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena — a sort of version 1.5 sequel to Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay – along with a new licensing deal for the be-goggled anti-hero.
Assault on Dark Athena will put us back in prison with Vin Diesel next spring, with further sequels to presumably be revealed at a later date.

CVG reckons that a third instalment of the Baldur’s Gate series is in development, but it’s not being handled by BioWare.
“Although it won’t be ready for at least another year, we’ve heard the RPG sequel is coming along at an as-yet-unnamed developer and Neverwinter Nights 2 house Atari,” says the site.
It’s rumour Friday, it appears.
