Reports this morning suggest that EA is making another game based on Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, this time for PS2, Xbox and GameCube, which would appear at retail in early Autumn.

With the next Potter film - the Prisoner of Azkaban - not due until next year, the DVD of the most recent film - the Chamber of Secrets - already released, and the fifth book - the Order of the Phoenix - released last Saturday, without this move EA would be left with just Quidditch World Cup to harness Potter fandom this Christmas.

Editor's Note: I personally find this hard to believe. But that's why they call it a rumor!
