At its E3 conference yesterday, Sony announced a new game made in collaboration with JK Rowling, called Wonderbook: Book of Spells. The game will include brand new written content by JK Rowling about the spells in the Harry Potter universe. Here is a trailer:
Now, this game looks cool and I’d love to play it and read the new writing by JK Rowling. The problem is, I won’t be able to. You need to own a Playstation 3, a Playstation Wonderbook, a Playstation Eye, a Playstation Move controller, and of course you’ll need to buy the game itself. There is no chance I could or would pay all that money for this. And this I’m sure will be a huge issue for most fans around the world.
With the new Wizard’s Collection DVD set, the re-release box-set of the three companion books, and now this, I really feel like the fans’ enthusiasm is starting to be abused. We are not made of money.
