Gamers have expressed a mixed reaction to Sony’s latest device, but what do you think?! More after the jump!

Sony has announced the official release date of Wonderbook to be November 13, 2012 for PlayStation 3 owners. Those who already own the PlayStation Move won’t have to worry about breaking the bank for the holidays, as gamers can purchase Wonderbook and Book of Spells separately. At launch, a full bundle package including the PlayStation Eye Camera and PlayStation Move controller with Book of Spells, which was written by J.K. Rowling, will retail for $79.99.

The barebones package clocks in at a reasonable price of $39.99, easily making it a very attractive purchase.

Developer London Studio promises to give gamers an imaginative, innovative, awe-inspiring, and enticing piece of edutainment that will keep players of any age immersed. The Wonderbook is an engaging device, which utilized augmented reality to build a safe environment around the player, where they can discover, learn and interact in exciting new ways.

J.K. Rowling says it best when talking specifically about Book of Spells, saying, “Wonderbook: Book of Spells is the closest a Muggle can come to a real spellbook. I’ve loved working with Sony’s creative team to bring my spells, and some of the history behind them, to life. This is an extraordinary product that offers a reading experience like no other.”
