There is a new interview online today from with John Fenno, a Senior Product Manager from EA, about the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game.  In the interview, Mr. Fenno discusses the differences between this and the previous games, what gamers can expect from the various platforms, and how they've utilized the various strengths of each platform.  He also notes that the game, which he calls an "action packed experience from start to finish," has gone through a "level of polish" since the release of the game was delayed along with the film last summer.  Quoteage:

"We put in an extra level of polish on the game that, I think, we can confidently say that this is the best Harry Potter game that we've ever made."
You can watch the interview, which runs just over three minutes in length and features a number of clips from the video game, via this link.

The Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince video game is slated for release in the Summer of 2009.

I’m excited about this because we just bought a Wii. It’ll be awesome to use it like a wand.

Cool! I still play the Sorcerer’s Stone computer game ALL THE TIME, and I love the Quidditch World Cup game… I like the PoA videogame, but GoF & CoS were just okay, and I have never played OotP. Truth is I don’t really play videogames, but I made my brother buy the HP ones ‘Cuz I love HP, but I do like the computer games! Anyway, I’ll play HBP on Wii- can’t wait! =D

I can’t wait to play it! I was quite disappointed with the Order of the Phoenix for Nintendo DS. It was fun to play a couple of times, but got old fast. The graphics were good, but the actual game play was redundant. My personal favorite game is Chamber of Secrets for Game Boy Color. That game is awesome and I still play it. I’m hoping HBP will be just as awesome.

Haha….when I read the title, I thought that it meant the Polish version would have an extra level of gameplay.
