Parents, get your wallets ready.
Electronic Arts will release the "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" video game June 30, just ahead of the Warner Bros. Pictures’ film based on J.K. Rowling’s sixth book in the Harry Potter series.
In the game, players will return to Hogwarts to help Harry survive a fraught sixth year. They will also have a chance to engage in exciting wizard duels, mix and brew magical ingredients in Potions class and take to the air to lead the Gryffindor Quidditch team to victory. Players may even get sidetracked by Ron’s romantic entanglements as they journey towards a dramatic climax and discover the identity of the Half-Blood Prince.
The game will be available for the Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PSP, Nintendo DS and Windows and Macintosh computer systems.
