PS3’s Book of Spells

Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling  gives us fans another treat for us to devour (Not literally)! JK Rowling and Sony teamed up to create a game that gives you a better understanding of how the spells really work. The gameplay  is remarkably easy as you get to perform spells by drawing shapes with PlayStation Move controller (that appears on the screen as a wand) while the book itself uses technology to show on screen via PlayStation Eye.

Even cooler,  players are allowed to interact with elements such as a fierce dragon! You, the beginner wizard, are taught at the one and only Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry as well. The Sony Computer Entertainment team worked with author J. K. Rowling, who described it as “the closest a Muggle can come to a real spellbook”.  That quote just makes me even more excited for the upcoming game! If you don’t know, Rowling has previously worked with Sony already on the popular Pottermore website which is the heart and home of all Harry Potter fans – which if you are one and haven’t heard of the site, check it out!

So before you avert your eyes to another article, make sure to save your money on December 2012, maybe as a christmas present?  This is a chance to make your fantasy of being a wizard come true in a magical world.
