    2 long years since the leak. Finally revealed, very excited (despite being in my 30s...)

    My son is going to go nuts for this (assuming he can tear himself away from Fortnite...)

    15 years ago I would have gone absolutely nuts for this.

    I'm still pretty excited now though.

    I was honestly more excited for this than I was for FFXVI and I never would have thought I'd say that.

    If I'm being honest it looked the most interesting game of the lot and I'm not particularly a fan of the source material.

    It looks pretty, but I'm not planning on contributing to Rowling's fortune at this point. Plenty of other things to play anyway.

    It’s a pity Rowling turned out to be a total Skeksis. We really must ban our childhood billionaires from Twitter, it’s best not to know anything about them.

    Think I remember even the devs saying Rowling has little involvement with this, as if to distance themselves from her. Cant think of any other game property tie in where not having the involvement of the original author is seen as a positive selling point.

    She'll be getting money from it, though.

    Unless she's on a percentage of sales she'll have already had her money when they purchased the rights.

    The only people who will suffer if the internets get their knickers in a twist about this are the devs.

    Its the line, though and withholding money is the only weapon people have.

    If primark released a t-shirt that said 'robthehermit is a pipe to pipe bushman' would you still buy it to avoid the sweatshop workers suffering?

    I like how they managed to make the theme music sound like the Avengers theme.

    He'd probably be stood outside a shopping centre clapping his hands

    @nickthegun I get what you're trying to say, but it's a poor analogy. Not buying it would hurt Primark, which would be the point of the protest against their poor business practices and ideals. The sweatshop workers will still have been paid or get paid for producing 'nickthegun is a nice chap' t-shirts for GAP.

    Not buying this game won't hurt anyone except the people making it. JK won't care if you buy it or not, she's already got her money.

    Yeah, it looks like destiny with wands. Until they showed the 'dungeons' it might have been an adventure game or something but Hogwarts is definitely going to be the hub world and youre going to be going out on missions to find the ingredients for the potion of fingerblast, finding incrementally better robes and unlocking shaders for your broomstick.

    I might have daydreamed my way through the particulars a bit last night but I was imagining it to be Bully with wands. Another live service game would probably be a turn off for me.

    Not this time, but you convince the people handing out the licensing money that Harry Potter isnt a sure bet and she will eventually.

    'She gets paid anyway', yeah fine. Just make sure she doesnt get another pay day and the only way to do that is to stop buying their games.

    And, tangentially, I see this argument a lot and I dont know how true it is. Do devs work exclusively on commission or something? Dont they also get paid regardless of sales (and yes, Im aware bonuses exist)?

    Watch it again. Towards the end it shows what look very much like traditional dungeons.

    It definitely gave off that shitty Avengers vibe and the voiceover added to that.

    Yep, just looked again and you're right. I never noticed the other wizards in the shot last night. Seems likely they were showing instanced dungeons. The only real hope is if they are NPC's, but who am I kidding?

    Re: ‘the line’ where things get tricky for me is my kids. It was the same with the Mario 3D pack thing. They’re absolutely nuts about Harry Potter and Mario stuff. When they get older they can wrestle with the ethical implications of that stuff, but for now I struggle slightly with my moral compass getting in their way.

    But yeah, he’ll of a first world problem to have.

    Hopefully that will come anyway as a result of what is going on with her at the moment. If a dev came out tomorrow and says they've just licensed her work for a new game knowing what we know now then they deserve everything they get. The people making this particular game don't deserve to be punished for not having a crystal ball.
