The first story: Wonderbook Book of Spells

Book of Spells is the first title for Wonderbook, the latest addition to the PlayStation experience. Written by Miranda Goshawk over two hundred years ago, Book of Spells can be found in the Restricted Section of the Hogwarts library. It is an advanced textbook for students, which will assist them on their journey to becoming an accomplished witch or wizard.

Book of Spells provides students with a safe environment in which to read, discover, learn and practise spells they already know and love, such as Incendio, Wingardium Leviosa and Expelliarmus, as well as discover mischievous notes and spells scribbled into the margins by previous Hogwarts students, and humorous anecdotal facts relating to the spells. J.K. Rowling has written a conundrum that leads you through the experience, providing insight into the values a witch or wizard has to learn, and inviting you to journey through the book to unlock new content, rewarding successful students along the way.

Features:

Discover the magic.

Wonderbook takes augmented reality to spectacular new places with an intuitive and easy to use book. Tilting, rotating, or simply turning the pages bring stories to life all around you like never before.

Learn the art of spell-casting.

Chapter by chapter, you will be able to read about and practise 20 spells, picking up valuable experiences and lessons along the way - as well as House Points - just like a student at Hogwarts.

Original content from J.K. Rowling.

From the world of Harry Potter, the Book of Spells reveals new and exciting content by the world’s best-loved author. Offering backstories to the famous spells, valuable lessons and brand new creatures, student wizards can unlock more writing with every chapter test.

Introducing the New PlayStation 3

The newly redesigned PlayStation 3 is smaller and lighter than ever before; packed with all the gaming fun you'd expect from PlayStation but in a brand new case!

By redesigning the internal design architecture, and removing the disc-fed tray and replacing it with a sliding top-loading disk cover, the PS3 Super Slim is reduced in size by up to 25% compared to the current Slim PS3.

The PS3 12GB Super Slim is a home entertainment system in a discreet and sleek console that allows you to play Blu-Ray Discs, DVD's, Music CD's and watch TV through the BBC, ITV and Channel 4 iPlayer (Internet connection required).

Buy one with a bigger hard drive or buy an internal hard drive to install! 12GB is far too small. The console and Move work fine. I never played the game.

Good console but wish I'd gone for 500gb model. Bought it as a gift for my daughter and I thought 12gb will do as she is a casual player. However there is only around 9gb actually available so you can only realistically install one game at a time. On the plus side however, Sony seems to have made it easy to install a new 3rd party HDD.

The console is great and has many possibilities. Important for parents: Internet access can be locked with a PIN number. Also the console has settings so that games with a high age rating cannot be played (again only with a PIN number). Important features. The Book of Spells that works with the Wonderbook, Move controller and camera is quite impressive. Any young Harry Potter fan will love this, guaranteed. The only thing I wish is that I could programme a maximum playtime per day, so that the kids have to stop after a certain time. If left to it, they would do nothing else but that is obviously not good for them. If the PS3 would switch off after a certain time, then that would be easy. Maybe that option is somewhere but I have not found it yet.
Conclusion: The kids love it, I sometime "have to help them" too ;-) and it gives me enough parental control so I don't have to sit and watch what is going on all the time. Would recommend.

I bought this as with next-gen upon us I needed more space for the new console. I was unwilling however to just discard my "pile of shame" - I still had about 40 unplayed PS3 games.

This was a Black Friday deal, and as I only wanted the console I gave away all Wonderbook stuff. I also bought a Sony PlayStation 3 Replacement Hard Disk Drive (HDD) Mounting Bracket, so I could swap my SSD from my old PS3, and a SONY PLAYSTATION 3 SUPER SLIM VERTICAL STAND FOR CECH-4000 SERIES.

Other than the smaller footprint, and smaller drive it is identical to the older PS3 (Sony PlayStation 3 320GB Slim Console).

I got the full acessory pack with intention to add my own SSD later (which I did). It came nicely packed with both move and wonderbook. I haven't done too much with the wonderbook, but I'm about halfway done with the Potter book and I will probably buy some other book when I'm done. It might seem silly, but it's a fun way to read.

Regarding the PS3, what can I say, it's a PS3! Games work just fine, I've got my own drive in it so I can get my stuff from PSN, netflix is nice etc. I use it daily, gaming about once a week.

PlayStation is great and you get the 2 controllers , the game is very dull though, probably very entertaining for a 5 year old and not far beyond that.

I'm not very techy but I knew this had a small memory, but to play games on its great. My 9 year old son loves it, Book of spells is not a game, it teaches you how to do spells. I'm sure he'll bore of it eventually but he is getting great pleasure out of it now. A happy customer.

12 GB on the smaller side, my son can have approx two or three games installed on the console, resulting in that he constantly has to delete games just to reinstall them at a later stage - but then has lost all his progress of course.
