Ubisoft marketing boss Murray Pannell is just a teensy bit excited about the upcoming game based on James Cameron’s Avatar. He’s even gone and mentioned he-who’s-become-a-household-name, Harry Potter, alongside Cameron’s untested opus.
“Avatar looks set to be a world-changing kind of cinema given its pedigree and elements like the 3D,” Pannell told MCV.
“It reminds me of my experience at EA, working on the original Harry Potter game – which was an incredible entertainment phenomenon.”
“Avatar has movie director James Cameron, and Potter also had one person ultimately in charge – JK Rowling, who everyone was terrified of disappointing. That can give you real focus,” he added.
Inspiring. More through the link.

Warner’s given VG247 a flat “no comment” on the subject of a Harry Potter Lego game, which has been rumoured yet again by CVG this morning.
Our offline sources indicate there may finally be truth to the project.
A Lego Potter title’s been rumoured for years, but licensing issues prevented any go ahead. Warner owns the Lego rights and TT Games, the developer behind all the major Lego games, while EA owns the rights to make Potter games.
It’s been mooted this morning that the twain may have finally met as the last Potter film-game tie-in will release next year, meaning the way would essentially be clear for an EA-sanctioned, non-competitive Potter product to release in its wake.
And everybody involved would rather have pots of extra money than not, clearly.

Motus has shown its motion-sensing Darwin 360 controller working in three videos.
The peripheral uses something the company calls Six Degrees of Freedom, which is something about total freedom as opposed to “partial.” More on that freedom of movement stuff here.
There’s more through the link but being honest we’ve covered most of it. Thanks Techradar.
