Sierra Entertainment and Sony Pictures Consumer Products have partnered up for the Ghostbusters ECTO-1 Tour. At eight stops across the country, Sierra is bringing the iconic ECTO-1 car to a town near you in anticipation of its upcoming Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which ships this fall for PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, PC, Wii and DS.

“The ECTO-1 is one of the most memorable and loved vehicles of all-time,” says Al Simone, VP of Marketing, Sierra Entertainment. “Sony has been a fantastic partner to work with and we’re very excited to have a hand in taking ECTO off the screen and out on the road – this way fans can experience a true piece of ghost busting history first hand as they get a taste of Ghostbusters™: The Video Game.”
