Wonderbook has the potential to be quite big this Christmas. Despite being the cause of some disgruntlement after a flat section during Sony’s E3 press conference, there’s clearly bags of potential. The J. K. Rowling partnership will be popular and the BBC’s interactive dinosaurs should make for an interesting experience while a younger audience waits to see what Disney does with the platform.
This holiday weekend (25th, 26th & 27th), HMV in Oxford Street – down in That London, is giving up part of its ground floor for a demonstration of Wonderbook. They’ll have Book of Spells there for people to play at wizarding and HMV has teamed up to offer pre-order discounts for anyone who puts in an order for either the Wonderbook Book of Spells pack or the bundle with Move and the PlayStation Eye camera.
There’s £3 off the regular price of £30.99 for the Book of Spells pack and £5 off the regular price of £70.99 for the full bundle. That makes the solus pack £27.99 and the bundle £65.99 if you pre-order in Oxford Street this weekend.
