Update on the Harry Potter Video Games

Two quick bits of news today regarding the Harry Potter video games. First, EA, makers of the games, gave a presentation in France, and revealed several new stills from the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince game. You can see our entire collection of game stills here. At last word, the game is due to be released on July 14, 2009. A reminder as well, that the (caution, game spoilers at the link) soundtrack to the video game scored by James Hannigan will be made available next week.

A second update comes from Variety, who has a piece the licenses for the video games. The article points out that "EA's deal extends through Warner Bros.' last film, which will be part 2 of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 2011."  At this point we do not believe there will be two video games for Deathly Hallows or know at what point the game may be released either with Part one in November of 2010 or in July with the release of Deathly Hallows, Part Two.

I don’t know if I like the idea of two DH games, I like the idea of a DH game of course (it will be amazing to play the final battle!) But two games just seems odd too me

Yeah, the concept of two games is odd. Games don’t have the limitations of film and so can handle fitting the whole book. Separating it would be like have the main adventure in one and the final battle in another. You don’t stop games in the middle. It’s too weird. I really hope it is just one.

Any MMORPG won’t be out for awhile. Therer have been rumours of a mumorpuguh for years, I think the first ones were in 2003 or 2004 or something. My money is on a Lego Harry Potter game being the first HP game made after the movies. And I really, really hope that they remake Quidditch World Cup for the next-gen consoles. If we get one, I expect a mumorpuguh around the time the Scottish Book gets released. Not coinciding or anything, mind you, just that far in the future.

I don’t know if you read the comments for news stories that much but they just said on BBC1 that tomorrow there will be something along the lines of “Harry Potter meets Dragons Den” tomorrow for Comic Relief.

Dragons Den is a show where members of the public can go and try to get businessmen to support a product idea. I don’t know if I’ve explained it well, but I’m sure you can find something on google.

I want this game so much! I actually enjoyed the OotP game (more than the GoF game, anyway).

I’m still not sure if I want to get this, I got the Order of the Phoenix game for DS and was kind of disappointed with it.
