Sony Partnership Ended - Indexed

Postby Hermione Leviosa » April 13th, 2014, 11:57 am

There is an announcement that the Sony Partnership has ended: http://www.pottermore.com/en/press?utm_ ... banner0314

I'm concerned about this. Do you guys think that will take away from the information we will get from J.K. Rowling? :?:

I would hope not. They do say in the article, that the partnership was successful and that;

Susan L. Jurevics wrote:... Pottermore is extremely well-positioned to build upon its success and enter its next phase in its development both creatively and commercially.


That's from the CEO of Pottermore and though she was brief, it sounds like they have new ideas for Pottermore without being tied down to Sony. Maybe, due to this, we may get more information. I doubt J.K. Rowling's ideas and inclusion in Pottermore is solely due to Sony's presence.

I hope you are right Pumpkin. I really wonder how this is going to affect Pottermore. It seems like it is a big loss for Sony. I am concerned that Pottermore will cost us to get the new information from J.K. Rowling.

Maybe you could contact them and ask whether we'll still get information for free?

I'm worried about if anything will happen to the Pottermore in PS Home. Not that I was an avid user of it xD I just hope they will not close it or anything, though. I wonder if it also means that there won't be new "Book of *insert subject here* games for Playstation. Well, they were nice and all, but I can live without a new one.

Otherwise I don't really care as long as the quality of Pottermore won't dramatically change. Unless for better, of course ;)

I Don't think It will change anything other than JK having more freedom to take the site in the direction she wants I also don't expect the ps home to change.
