Reuters has a new article regarding the video game industry and their struggle in these tougher economic times, with the piece noting there will be some good news this summer as "in June, Electronics Arts will release the "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" game to coincide with the film of the same name by Warner Bros Pictures."  While only last week, retailers had the release dates reading July, however as of today on Amazon, all the various platforms of the new HBP video game now reflect a June 30, 2009 release date.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince will be released here in the US and Canada on July 15; you can read the current international list of release dates here.  Be sure to check out the latest trailer released last month here, and our collection of stills from the game, here.

Update: Thanks to Emma from SS who owled to say Amazon UK now has their date a few days later at July 3rd.

I am sorry to say that I got stuck on the Order of the Pheonix game and never finished. This announcement makes me want to go back and finish if only just because I want to play the new game.

i just got the game on friday and i tell u it is boringggggggggg! the game is mostly filled with dialogue and you have to wait ages until they stop talking to finally play! although the potion making is really fun but it’s quite easy and the castle has changed since the last game, its a little confusing and the discovery things have also changed, u now need to collect hogwarts crests! it is just a retelling of the film although i hope the film is nothing like the game coz if it is, it wont be very good! i was very dissapointed, it’s up there with the goblet of fire game!!!
