June 2010 Release for LEGO Harry Potter Video Game
March 31, 2010, 12:42 PM
The official LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1 - 4 video game website has been revised to note a release date of "June 2010." While we await official word on an exact release date, this date change would put the release of the game one month behind the previously projected May launch. Pre-order options on such sites as Amazon.com list the release date for the video game as June 29, 2010.
On a related note, the official LEGO Harry Potter website
contains a special VIP area, accessible with the password "Azkaban," with exclusive footage of the developers working on creating the game. Three new videos are now online, showcasing the creative and technical processes behind:
WHAT?!?!?!?!!? I’ll actually be going towards WWoHP on my vacation!!! I was hoping to ask for it for my b-day on the 31st, but oh well…. It looks hilariously fun!!!

Big surprise. How many times has it been pushed back now? Three? I really think someone needs to look into the practice of asking people to fork over money for game pre-orders and then pushing release dates back months or even years at a time. Think of the interest lost by individuals and gained by retailers every year, due to millions of pre-order purchases for products that can be delayed indefinitely.
