New Video Games Due This Week

We've got three movie-based game titles in stores this week as Harry Potter, Ratatouille, and Transformers all gear up for theatrical releases. In EA's Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, the company has departed from the staid formula of the past games that retold the events of the movies in favor of a game that accompanies the books. While Order of the Phoenix will be available on all platforms, the Wii edition really lets gamers experience the world of Potter and friends in a whole new way as you cast spells using the Wii-remote.
