Warner Bros. will re-release both Lego Harry Potter games on one disc, remastered for PlayStation 4 on 21st October.
Lego Harry Potter: Years 1-4 and Years 5-7 cover the complete Harry Potter series of books and films, from Philosopher's Stone through to the end of Deathly Hallows.
You get a sprinkling of new content too via a character pack and spell pack. New characters include all four Hogwarts founders, Peeves the poltergeist, plus fresh looks for Harry, Luna, Ron and Hermione. Also Professor Lockhart in a straightjacket.
Harry Potter's Hogwarts adventures have been adapted into Lego games twice before and if a Brazilian ratings board listing is any indication, we could get a single anthology encapsulating Harry and the gang's academic career.
Blizzard's science fiction real-time strategy game StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty obliterated sales of all other games released in the US in July, NPD said.

StarCraft II is the fastest-selling strategy game ever.
Warner Bros. has revealed that LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 has sold 2.7 million copies around the world.

Jonathan Smith tells tales.
LEGO Harry Potter is enormous, which is no mean feat given that the title character is two centimetres tall. And plastic.
By the time I finished the sizeable story mode, encompassing the first four years of Harry's life at Hogwarts, I'd put more hours on the game clock than most "adult" action games demand, yet I was still at just over 45 per cent completion. I'd not completed any of the Hogwarts crests hidden in each of the levels. I'd unlocked a fraction of the game's 160-plus characters. I'd found only six of the secret red power bricks, rescued a mere 20 of the 50 imperilled students and earned less than half of the golden bricks which add up to unlock more bonus levels.
So, for a game built from tiny pieces, LEGO Harry Potter builds into a seriously epic undertaking. This has been true of all the LEGO games, of course, but this is by far the most impressive and most rewarding iteration of the beloved formula to date.
Warner will unleash an Xbox 360 demo of LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4 on Monday, 7th June.
Warner Bros. and LEGO have struck a deal enabling TT Games to turn out LEGO game after LEGO game until 2016.
Adults, according to most fairy tales, have stopped believing in magic. The people at Traveller's Tales probably haven't, though. And why should they? Just five years ago the developer saw an unlikely potion brewed from two fantastically powerful ingredients - LEGO and Star Wars - turn a faintly clunky platformer into an instantly charming mega-hit, and recent forays into Gotham City and the knockabout sandboxes of Indiana Jones have only continued the spectacular run.
Warner Bros. has sent word that LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1 - 4 will arrive here in May.
