Does this require you to have already bought the AR book? looks like the book is on the list of required peripherals.
Does anybody know? $10 is a great deal for any game but not if I have to buy something to go with it.

I will say Sorcery was a lot of fun and very enjoyable. The Move has been a failure but I got it cheap and for a few games it's worth it.

you neeed Move stuff, but you seem to have it.

The book is included in the package, the game boxset includes the AR book.

Oh, and for all the haters, this has a 73 metacritic score after 33 reviews. Not exactly the biggest flop of the year - just something that hasn't sold all that well. The reviews are either love it or hate it - go figure. It's almost as if it's something made for children that didn't satisfy the pasty faced adults who bought it...

For the price, this is worth every single penny! Yeah, it's aimed more at kids, but the game itself is a blast to play (experience). But it's one of those things, where if you aren't a fan of the harry potter universe, it just won't be worth your time.
Harry potter you say, my wife would love this then!!

My daughter got this for Christmas and it was her favourite present. She loves it! To each their own, I guess.

It's actually a pretty fair success in Europe but for some reason it's not selling as well in North America. Though that seems to be the case with most casual games on the PS3.

This is awesome. I told my co-worker about it when she mentioned her one kid got a new wand and was going to take it with him to Florida to Harry Potter world or whatever they have down there. It was too late for them to go out and get one, so I've ordered an extra copy for them.

Kid's love this.. under 10 and this is golden. Only thing that happened was that Sony needed a Harry Potter licensed game to follow up with this.

Honestly, I think only a Sony fanboy could see it this way. This is a case of a company completely failing to understand its product (PS3) and its market and not only releasing a product that had very little chance of success to begin with, but still thoroughly believing it could be successful to the point that they spent consideriable marketting dollars on it (30% of E3 2012). Any other company failing to understand its market this badly would be laughed at as well. This is easily one of the biggest flops of the year.
LOL! Wonderbook was not 30% of the Sony E3 press conference? You're crazy... although they did waste a bit of time on it just not as bad as you remember.

I remember seeing a preview of this and thinking 'who the hell is going to buy this idiotic contraption?' and I guess my question is answered lol
The hoarders here that can make $1, will buy it.
A life spent making mistakes is not only more memorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing.

Honestly it's not the worst game. My problem is that the ps eye has to be above the book looking down on it so it's inconvenient for me to play. I paid $10 for it awhile back and I don't regret it but I'm shocked it dropped so fast. I heard there's 2 other games being developed for the peripheral but I'm not certain so I'm gonna hold onto the thing.

Umm...I just saw the review and FOR 10$, a Harry Potter Fan (a child), this is a perfect way to keep them entertained.
