Avatar ImageMushMania says: What!!!? I'm trying to download but it says "Http/1.1 NS Internal Server Error 11"!!!Avatar Imageevildevilbg says: So I played it... I'm with mixed feeling right now... The demo is "Griffyndor Duel Club and "Griffyndor Flying club" 1. The duels are great in my opinion, however in the demo there are only "Stupefy" and "Expelliarmus" and a dodge... With more spells in the whole game it'll be perfect... 2.Flying club.... For me the flying in the game really sucks... The flying of the broom is controlled by the mouse and I think this ruins everything... Well I anticipate getting the whole game which must be better with it's campaign :)Avatar ImageMushMania says: Woo! it's okay it's okay! it works now!!Avatar Imagemegan_702 says: u have to download it??? darn it! i'm not allowed to download!Avatar Imagemegan_702 says: ......i don't think i'm going to download it since everyone says it takes a long timeAvatar ImageGarden State Geek says: This game looks awesome.

I'm not sure if my PC is up for it. I went to the UK site to download it because the Australian site just had wallpapers. I might read that Wii review at IGN. Avatar Imagekamidee says: Squee! Exciting! Avatar ImageThio says: For the people only getting the smoke: Trying selecting your own country. I tried selecting US, because I preffer seeing Harry Potter official stuff in English, but I couldn't find the link to the demo until I cliked on the Brazilian version of the site; only to find out that the demo comes in a ".exe" file, which, if I'm not mistaken, doesn't run on Mac's. Oh well.... only six more days until the game comes out. Mr. Horn has taught me the virtue of patience.Avatar ImagePaintTheSky says: it's not working for me :( does this demo not function on a mac?Avatar Imagewiltabone says: Yay worksAvatar ImageScrambler says: To run Half Blood Prince your computer should these specificationsat a minimum: Operating System Windows XP/Vista Processor 1.8GHz Pentium 4 or comparable Memory 256MB Video card 64MB HDD Space 685MB Soundcard DirectX 9.0c or higher compliant sound card DirectX DirectX 9.0c Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: on the other side of the clip is this word, poccnr, but i am on the usa site! confused.. Can't figure out how to download...Avatar ImagePetra says: really cool.... I will download it right now...Avatar ImageLloyd says: It is probably slow due to the high number of people attempting to download it. Avatar ImageDanielBonnie28 says: I can’t download it there is Error!!!! Avatar ImageMushMania says: 29 mins to go...Avatar Imagephoenixes are in ravenclaw says: Got it! Going to play it tomorrow!Avatar Imagegreatpetie83 says: It's now installing. Getting more and more curious.Avatar ImageHufflepuffSam says: Just finished playing - the demo gives you two things flying class (which is just a game of Quidditch vs. Slytherin) and Gryffindor Dueling Club. Flying Class - The game isn't that fun. You just use your mouse to move Harry through these stars until you eventually catch the snitch. Really boring and disapointing... Dueling Club - Dumbledore decided to start up a dueling club - yay! And this kid seems to have a mancrush on you (Harry) and pretty much keeps telling you how awesome you are until you do a demonstration of how to duel. You and Ron do the demo and you learn how to cast Expelliarmus and Stupefy. Then you have a real duel against Ron, then against some other girl. Both duels are best 2 out of 3. These are actually pretty fun, but still easy.Avatar Imageseachellie4 says: Awesome! Can't wait to try it :)Avatar Imagefelixfelicis11 says: Downloading it now :)Avatar Imagesometimesremus says: It says that its not a valid win32 application after i downloaded and tried to open!!! grrr... help, anyone?Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Soooooo Sloooooooow!!!Avatar Imageravonja says: The speed sucks bad :( BUT I'm really excited :DAvatar ImageR-for-H says: Am doing this right now!!Avatar ImageDiamondWings says: cool! =)Avatar Imagekraamerxmich says: Hey Everyone! Figured out why some of you are having problems! If your using Google Chrome, it WILL NOT download! Internet Explorer WILL! I dont know about Mozilla Firefox tho...Maybe...Avatar Imagedrhawks says: awesome!Avatar ImageScrambler says: The DEMO is now showing on the US site. The file is the same as the one shown on the UK site. If you are getting "Internal Server Error 11 " when you try to download HP_HBP_PEGI_DEMO.exe file just keep refreshing the page till you get get it or wait a few minutes and try it again. EA's Large File Public FTP site is very busy as you can imagine.Avatar Imagecheeserpleaser says: I will have to download it and give the sample a try!Avatar ImageDanielleD says: :)Avatar Image1pottyfan says: it is *********************** amazingAvatar Imagebeewell says: Have tried several times to download..nothing!
