Pottermore is now Available in Playstation Home

I must say I wasn't expecting to come out yesterday(wednesday, 3rd April), I thought would be around 10 or 13 April.
since I'm a PS3 user, I was able to explore it, yesterday was so many people (I believe it was the reason) I couln't even enter Playstation Home, they said it could be problems with their servers or mine, I'm sure it was their servers, when Ni No Kuni: The Wrath of the White Witch came out on Playstation Store, first came late and second, there were so many users downloading and buying that it came quite slow the downloading on it's first days, so today mourning (Thursday, 4th April) was working quite properly.
It's very neat, Book Herding is fun, but Pottermore Quiz and Wizard Duel is the only complain, it's that you have to buy the animals and your house robes and wizard hat with muggle money (real money) and not wizard money >>", I do have some idea.

So for now it has only Diagon Alley and Hogwarts Express, Pottermore Insider said there would be more locations and mini-games in the future...of course one of them is Hogwarts, this one will be huge, there is many details to take in, because it's Pottermore, it's suppose to be the locations come back to life after all, so it will take more time and work.

Now, I have read half of some comments on Facebook, but I can get right away, look I understand their position those who can't own a PS3 or think would be a waste of money just for pottermore (just because isn't a casual gamer or doesn't play games, treating a console as if is just for gamers, when it can be used in general, family and friends party games, which casual gamers doesn't really play) and could just go to the computer and why playstation would be treated as if is special, it's not because is special, Pottermore is published by Sony, Playstation is a Sony product, but I see it as a base, a start for then to the future, Yes I DO BELIEVE IT WILL COME TO THE COMPUTER, Why?
I'll give you a reminder of the interview of Charle Redmayne:

PN: What is your response to critics of Pottermore who say Pottermore has no value?CR: Obviously it’s not for everybody. If you’re not a Harry Potter fan, then I wouldn’t think it does have value. But, if the extraordinary way that J.K. Rowling wrote those books and the magical world she created in her mind and the extra content that has come out of that and the product that has started rolling out with things like Playstation and other platforms – then I think it has immense value.
on Pottermore Insider commented:
Charlie Redmayne, CEO of Pottermore, comments: “Pottermore reaches across multiple digital platforms, and our ongoing partnership with Sony has allowed us to forge this exciting connection with Playstation Home, creating the most immersive experience possible within that space and giving users wonderful new ways to explore locations from the Harry Potter stories. Following the successful launch of Wonderbook: Book of Spells, this is another example of the creative collaborations Pottermore is developing to bring the world of Harry Potter even more ingeniously to life” 
We have a separate team working on these new Pottermore innovations so, for those who don’t have a PlayStation account, there is no need to worry as we still have a dedicated team hard at work to bring you the third and final instalment of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban on in the coming weeks.  
It's like like making a count two with two, it will take time but it will get there, stop making such a rush, besides, in Pottermore Home you can't go inside the store, just buy items with money in your funds of Playstation Network, but you can tell by the shop if it's to look around it's outside the can't even buy anything in Ollivander yet.
I prefer them take their time...go step by step, I think they are doing very well, they are starting with basics first even including in the reading experience, if you notice the step by step is very well done, get better, improvement, innovating, that's very good, appreciate it.
