Dan Aykroyd is Loving His Wii-based Alter-ego

Bustin' makes him feel good, we guess
Ghostbusters: The video game is coming to every platform imaginable pretty soon. And you know what? The Wii version is sporting a slightly different look to the 360 and PS3 editions. Of course, this occurrence is nothing new – Wii owners are used to getting their own versions of multiplatform titles (they’re usually the same as the PS2 versions, as it happens).
Dan Aykroyd – AKA Ray Stantz – isn’t overly concerned, though. In fact, he thinks the Wii instalment is the best of the bunch – because of the graphics!
Honestly, I love the way we look in the Wii platform, because it resembles the animation that was done in "The Incredibles." Anybody who looks like an Incredible is automatically a superhero. And I was so pleased that they shaved off at least 60 pounds from my current bulk.
The Wii version certainly sports a more stylized look than the versions being coded for powerful hardware, and the Wii Remote should make for more engaging gameplay; none of which seems important to Aykroyd – he’s just glad he looks slimmer, which is fair enough.
