Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the first title to be published, which uses the innovative new Playstation 3 peripheral and will transform the world around you with the next step in reading and augmented reality gaming. It is also the first product to result from Sony's partnership with Pottermore.
Featuring exclusive new and original writing from J.K. Rowling, Wonderbook: Book of Spells comes to life as you read, allowing you to cast spells with your PlayStation Move Motion Controller which becomes your own magic wand. Go on a fantastic journey to read and learn the secrets of wizardry and the art of spell-casting, just like a student at Hogwarts, when it is released in November 2012 in Europe and December 2012 in North America. Wonderbook: Book of Spells will also be coming to other countries and regions following this window.
Andrew House, President and Group CEO of SCE said, “We believe that Wonderbook: Book of Spells represents the next revolution in story-telling and are excited that PlayStation technologies are able to bring even more of the world of Harry Potter to life in exciting new ways.”
Book of Spells is presented as being written by Miranda Goshawk over two hundred years ago, and can be found in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library. It is an advanced textbook for students, which will assist them on their journey to becoming an accomplished witch or wizard.
Released in November 2012, Wonderbook: Book of Spells provides students with a safe environment in which to read, discover, learn and practise spells they already know and love, such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, as well as discover mischievous notes and spells scribbled into the margins by previous Hogwarts students. In addition to humorous anecdotal facts relating to the spells, J.K. Rowling has written a conundrum that leads you through the experience, providing insight into what makes a successful witch or wizard, and inviting fans to journey through the book and unlock new tales at the end of each chapter rewarding students for their successful spell-casting.
As for the all-new Playstation 3 chasis: it has a brand new look with a sleek, and VERY glossy facelift that will now make the perfect entertainment hub for your family room. It also has functions included for catch up TV and BBC Sports App, as it holds the exclusive rights to streaming hours of sports from Wimbledon to Formula One, as well as allowing the streaming from LoveFilm and Netflix. This will make the perfect family Christmas Package this year with the combined Paystation 3 hub and the Wonderbook: Book of Spells.
