Finally. The Potter gang is back (this time with more raging hormones and some erstwhile snogging behind curtains in between classes).
After the whole ordeal of the "Harry Potter and the delayed video game" scenario, we get a street date notched in stone. The game was delayed due to the rescheduling of the movie from an original November 2008 release to summer 2009.
But now that mid-2009 is here, we can expect the game to finally roll in to coincide with the movie. What's more is that the game is coming out a few weeks ahead of the movie. Announced via the Daily Prophet press release, Electronic Arts makes it official.
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released across all major platforms on June 30 in North America and July 3 in the UK. Choose your poison: the game's gonna be available for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PSP, DS, Mobile, Mac, and PC.
Just so you know, the movie comes out mid-July. Make sure to double-check with your local theaters for specific calendar dates.
