Sony continues its third-party publishing strategy in PAL territories today by taking up Codemasters' DiRT 2
. Unlike the Ghostbusters venture
, however, this is not a timed exclusive for PlayStation platforms. MCV
reports that Sony will publish the PSP and PS3 versions of the game, while Codemasters handles publishing duties on all other platforms.
Codemasters' senior VP of publishing for EPAC, Axel Herr, is glad to have Sony take over, citing the series' "great affinity with the PlayStation brand in PAL territories for over 10 years" as one of the key factors behind the decision. We're sure all of the buzz around the PS3 Slim
didn't hurt either.
