You know you want it

Harry Potter spin-off Wonderbook: Book of Spells may not be the most obvious PlayStation 3 blockbuster of the year, but it’s clear that Sony has big plans for the augmented reality title. That’s been underlined by a North American release date of 13th November – right at the start of the gift giving season.

The J.K. Rowling endorsed title will be available in a variety of guises. You'll be able to snap up the book peripheral and the game for $39.99, or buy it alongside a Move motion controller and PlayStation Eye camera for $79.99. Sony’s also indicated that it’s looking to create console bundles overseas.

All the platform holder needs to do now is get the price of the actual PS3 system down, and this could be one of the most wanted toys of the year. Even we’re cautiously optimistic about it.
