Harry Potter goes Next-Gen, due July

Ready to cast magic spells with your Wiimote wand? You might get a chance very soon. Harry Potter: Order of the Phoenix is coming to the Wii, PS3, and 360 ... and every other financially viable platform under the sun. EA will have the new game on the shelf by July, which is reported to lauch opposite of the film. Details are sketchy at this point, but we've read that you'll be able to "explore the locations used in the film and tackle scenarios in the roles of various characters - including Potter himself, obviously, but also Dumbledore and Sirius Black." Three screenshots of the next-gen version are attached, and a dwarfed version on PS2, PSP, DS, GBA and PC are also on their way.  I can't wait -- it seems they've really captured the creepyness of the environments on a large scale. If EA can nail the gameplay where others in this genre have failed (Rule of Rose comes to mind) they might have something special, as the prior Harry games have been a bit forgetable.
