Electronic Arts and Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment announced the development of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, a video game tied to the July 2007 release of the film of the same name. Based on the fifth Harry Potter book by J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is the first in the franchise being developed for next-generation game consoles.

The game will be closely tied to both the movie and the book. Players will be able to explore the many key locations within Hogwarts in minute detail, each one a visual match to its film equivalent, while taking part in the adventures outlined in the narrative of the book.

In Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry returns for his fifth year of study at Hogwarts and discovers that much of the wizarding community is in denial about the teenager's recent encounter with the evil He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Fearing that Hogwarts' venerable headmaster, Albus Dumbledore, is lying about He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named's return in order to undermine his power and take his job, the Minister for Magic, Cornelius Fudge, appoints a new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher to keep watch over Dumbledore and the Hogwarts students: Professor Dolores Umbridge.

Meanwhile, Harry, Hermione and Ron take matters into their own hands and meet secretly with a small group of students who name themselves "Dumbledore's Army." Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the dark arts, preparing the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead.

Gamers will be able to play multiple characters, including Harry Potter, Dumbledore and Sirius Black. Under development by EA's UK Studio, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix is scheduled for release for the Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS, GameBoy Advance and Windows PC.

I don't really do video games, but games like this almost make me want to buy a game system of some type.

It was recalled because the strap on the controller was breaking, but I don't use the strap on mine anyway, heh.. which probably isn't smart, but yeah.

Ooh I've never played the POA game. I think the only other HP game I've played would be the Sorcerer's Stone one. I'm just really excited about the OotP one because supposedly you can choose to play it open-endedly.
