If you’re like me, then you thought that the whole Harry Potter thing is over with. Kaputskies. No more riding around on brooms, brewing potions to turn yourself into the opposite sex while you’re alone in your dormitory, and certainly no more drunken strolls through the halls of Hogwarts while wearing your invisibility cloak.
Well think again good sir. Think again.
Thanks to the magic of motion sensing technology, you can not only replicate the amazing moments of he Harry Potter books and movies, but you can actually physically transport a representation of yourself into the game rather than wasting valuable imagination fuel on your Ron Weasley fantasy dates.
How is this all possible? Harry Potter for Kinect. Boom.
Featuring a greatest hits of all the most memorable Harry Potter moments, players can avoid getting beaten to death by the Whomping Willow, battle those things that look like the Ring Wraiths from Lord of the Rings, play Quidditch, and cast spells that are probably really amazing (uttering magical gibberish while doing so is optional.) The game features co-op as well as multiplayer mini-game competitions.
It’s available exclusively for the Kinect on Xbox 360 for $49.99. There is also a demo you can download and try out on the online store.
So put down that pen, stop writing all that creepy fan fiction, and get an envelope of money ready to pay off anyone that happens to see you pretending to ride a broom in front of your telly.
